PMID:  23358219     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Our understanding of inherited risk factors for colorectal cancer (CRC) is incomplete. A new study reports the identification of germline CRC risk variants that adversely affect the proofreading function of DNA polymerases encoded by POLE and POLD1.
