Project Description:

Much colon cancer is linked to consumption of diets that subtly alter the normal balance of the colonic mucosa and elevate the probability of a tumor forming over a long period of time. This study used a novel mouse model to examine the mechanism by which the Wnt signaling pathway is altered by nutritional factors present in a western diet (high in fat and low calcium, vitamin D, choline, methionine, folate and fiber).
