Figure 1
Figure 1 Different classes of colorectal cancer associated molecular and cellular biomarkers.
Figure 2
Figure 2 Schematic view of biomarker secretion during different stages of colorectal cancer development (blood and stool biomarkers) (A) and pipelines of biomarker discovery for colorectal cancer (B).
Figure 3
Figure 3 Genes associated to colorectal cancer development. Dysregulation of these genes as a single or in cooperation (due to the DNA mutation, epigenetic changes or as a consequence of change in the regulatory upstream genes/pathways), has been shown in different forms and stages of colorectal cancer.
Figure 4
Figure 4 Genes which are involved in the telomere maintenance and telomerase activity pathway. Any dysregulation in those genes will lead to the pathologic telomere length dynamics during colorectal cancer development stages.
