The adenomatous polyposis coli protein 30 years on

Research output: Working paper/PreprintPreprint


Mutations in the gene encoding the Adenomatous polyposis coli protein (APC) were discovered as driver mutations in colorectal cancers almost 30 years ago. Since then, the importance of APC in normal tissue homeostasis has been confirmed in a plethora of other (model) organisms spanning a large evolutionary space. APC is a multifunctional protein, with roles as a key scaffold protein in complexes involved in diverse signalling pathways, most prominently the Wnt signalling pathway. APC is also a cytoskeletal regulator with direct and indirect links to and impacts on all three major cytoskeletal networks. Here, we interrogate the enormous depth of sequencing data now available to reveal the conservation of APC across taxonomy and relationships between different APC protein families.
