Info -



gene that, when mutated or expressed at high levels, helps turn a normal cell into a tumor cell

Context: Info

Cancer is believed to develop through a complex cascade of transformation events that lead to an accumulation of genetic abnormalities. Often, sequential activation of oncogenes causes pre-cancerous cells to acquire a malignant phenotype. The activating protein (AP-1) group of transcription factors consists of heterodimers of members of the c-Jun and c-Fos oncogenic protein families.
