Abstract

Background: The association between microsatellite instability (MSI) status and gene expression profiles in the early onset sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC) has not been clearly established. The aim of this study was to identify the altered gene expression patterns depending on the MSI status of early onset CRC and determine specific biomarkers that could provide novel therapeutic molecular targets in the Turkish population.
