In leukemia cell lines (248) and a substantial portion of mismatch repair-deficient colon and gastric cancers (249), the BAX gene is mutated, although the heterozygous nature of these mutations in clinical cancer (249) stands in contrast to results obtained in animal models (250) and by itself fails to completely account for any apoptotic defect. In other tumors, changes that upregulate the Akt pathway (251), including autocrine or paracrine activation of receptor tyrosine kinases, PI3KINASE gene mutation (252) or amplification (253), PTEN deletion, or AKT2 gene amplification (254), inhibit mitochondrial cytochrome c release (255).
