Genetics
A gene on chromosome 5q21-q22 that encodes a tumour-suppressor protein which acts as an antagonist of the Wnt signalling pathway. APC is also involved in cell migration and adhesion, transcriptional activation, and apoptosis.

Molecular Pathology
APC mutations cause familial adenomatous polyposis.

Patient discussion about APC

Q. what is APC in cardiology?

A. APC, or atrial premature complex (or beat) is a beat that arise in the atria of the heart from outside the normal mechanism of heartbeats. It's very common and doesn't portend any bad prognosis. It increase with age, smoking, coffee intake, alcohol intake, and stress, and also with heart and lung disease.

If they don't cause symptoms, no treatment is necessary. If they do cause symptoms, it can be treated with beta-blockers (e.g atenolol)
