Mutation in DNA mismatch repair genes

Proto-oncogens transforms to oncogenes Tumor suppressor genes is turned off inactivation of the adenomatous Polyposis coli gene Allows unchecked cellular replication

Negatively affects the DNA repair at the crypt surface

Cells grow and divide very quickly

DNA repair genes is inactivated Inability to control proliferation of affected cells

Increased cell division

Increases survival and proliferation of cancer cells causes further mutations Activation of the k-ras oncogene P53 mutations

Springs out from the colon

Prevent apoptosis Prolong lifespan of affected cells Continuous replication of affected cells Increases number of malignant cells

Invades the epithelium of the bowel wall Loss of methyl groups in DNA Activated oncogenes Mutation and inactivation of p53 gene crypt cells migrate from the base To the surface transformation takes place among the stem cell population at the crypt base transformed stem cell replicated monoclonal conversion produces the monocryptal adenoma undergoes differentiation and maturation loss of proliferation control abnormal cells spreads laterally and downward to form new crypts connects to pre-existing crypts and replaces them mucosa in the large intestine Regenerates

Forms epithelium composed of genetically altered cells located in the superficial portions of the mucosa
