Abstract

Objective: Despite the recent advances in diagnosis and treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), it is still a major health problem. Therefore, understanding the molecular mechanism is very important. Our aim is to investigate the molecular basis of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) induced HCC other than the hotspot TP53 p.Arg249Ser (c.747G>T) (R249S) mutation.
