The Oncogene FactsBook is a condensed version of the Oncogene Handbook, in the FactsBook Series format. The key information on oncogenes, tumor viruses, and tumor suppressor genes has been selected from the Handbook and arranged in the series style to that the essential information is readily accessible.
The introduction summarizes the principal developments in our understanding of oncogenes, the presente position with regard to gene therapy for human cancers, and discusses patterns of oncogene expression in human tumors. Chapter 2 contains tables of the major categories of oncogenes that include a summary of the properties of those oncogenes which do not have individual sections. Chapter 3 covers the individual oncogenes in a constant format for each entry. DNA tumor viruses and tumor suppressor genes are considered separately in two sections. The minimum number of references has been included in order to give the reader rapic access to the literature in the key areas of structure and function of each gene and its product. The emphasis has thus been placed on listing the most up-to-date references, rather than an extensive bibliography. The Oncogene FacsBook contains more that 60 entries on oncogenes including: JUN, MAS, MYC, MAX, and RAS, as well as DNA tomur viruses, tumor suppressor genes, and essential introductory material.
