OBJECTIVE: To evaluate and map the putative tumor suppressor loci on chromosome 5 involved in tumor progress or metastasis. METHODS: Chromosome 5 of 83 patients with sporadic colorectal cancer was systemically screened. Fifteen microsatellite marker primers labeled with 3 different fluorescents were used to amplify the corresponding loci of the genome DNA. The PCR products were electrophoresed on a 377 PRISM sequencer and the fluorescent signals were analyzed with Genotyper and Genescan software. RESULTS: The highest loss of heterozygosity (LOH) ratio was found at D5S416 (48.15%) on 5p and at D5S471 (38.71%) on 5q. The region (5q13.3 - 31), where D5S471 and 3 neighboring loci (D5S428, D5S2027 and D5S2115) reside, presented high frequent LOH. CONCLUSION: The deletion of APC, MCC, CTNNA1 and IL cluster in the 5q 13.3 - 31.1 area play important role in the tumorogenesis of colorectal cancer, and the expected existence of another novel tumor suppressor gene on 5p is possible.
