Core Tip GFRA1 reactivation by DNA demethylation is a frequent event in colon cancer (CC) development and that the high level of GFRA1 demethylation in CC tissues is correlated with high metastasis risk of CC and shorter overall survival of patients, especially patients with metastatic CC. We find that GFRA1 overexpression enhances the proliferation and growth of CC cells in vitro and in vivo, probably by activation of the GFRA1-GDNF downstream pathway. These data indicate that reactivation of GFRA1 by DNA demethylation is an important prognosis factor for CC and the cancer-related cell membrane protein GFRA1 may be a therapeutic target for CC patients.
