However, consideration of several aspects of mutational heterogeneity improves the specificity in identification of significantly mutated genes while reducing the nomination of frequently mutated genes that likely have no contribution to oncogenesis.
Because LT-Ag is a principal PyV protein that orchestrates oncogenesis (13,20-25), we chose it as the target for consensus PCR detection.
The gene also plays a role in cellular differentiation, proliferation, and oncogenesis.
This potential risk may stem from several reasons, including the oncogenic factor c-Myc, and the random integration into the cell's DNA of the virus that is used to carry the transcription factors -- a process known as insertional oncogenesis.
Oncogenesis is associated with both genetic predisposition and environmental onslaught, with a mixture of the two being required for the malignancy to progress.

A paper, by Ronit Sarid, professor of virology at Israel's Bar-Ilan University, said: "We anticipate in the next few decades that many additional human cancer viruses will be discovered and the mechanisms underlying viral oncogenesis (cancer creation) discovered.
There is evidence to suggest that forms of Mycoplasma have the ability to trigger oncogenesis (Huang 2006), however infection is rarely tested for so in reality the figure may be much higher.
Another chapter later in this section by Young discusses evolution of cancer from a disordered and unstable genome and protective role of apoptosis against oncogenesis.
Since their identification in the 1980s as having an important role in oncogenesis and tumor progression, protein kinases have received increasing attention as targets for anticancer drugs.
