Abstract

Many steps in the Wnt signalling pathway may be altered during the process of carcinogenesis. This Review focuses on the changes observed in gastrointestinal cancers. A literature search was undertaken and the currently available data summarised. Understanding the alterations to this signalling pathway may help to reveal future targets for therapeutic agents. In addition, since in some tumours, levels of components of the Wnt pathway have been found to correlate with clinical stage, their potential use as prognostic indicators is highlighted.
