Deleted in Colorectal Carcinoma, also known as DCC, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the DCC gene. DCC has long been implicated in colorectal cancer. While the official, full name of this gene is Deleted in Colorectal Carcinoma,it is almost universally called Deleted in Colorectal Cancer. The protein product of DCC is a single transmembrane receptor also known as DCC, and it has the same interchangeable name.
DCC has been characterized as a dependence receptor, and theories have been put forward that have revived interest in DCC's candidacy as a tumour suppressor gene, as it may be a ligand-dependent suppressor that is frequently epigenetically silenced.
