AbstractColorectal adenomas and carcinomas from familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) patients were screened for the presence of K-ras gene mutations at codon 12 using an in vitro amplification step (polymerase chain reaction) followed by dot blot analysis using oligonucleotide probes specific for different mutations at codon 12. We examined 28 colorectal adenomas and two colorectal carcinomas from 12 FAP patients and observed a mutation at codon 12 in seven adenomas and in both carcinomas. The frequency of K-ras gene mutations in colorectal tumours from FAP patients is similar to those in cases of sporadic adenomas and sporadic colorectal carcinomas indicating that the mechanisms involved in their development may be similar.
