Chromosome 12 spans about 134 million DNA building blocks and represents approximately 4.5 percent of the total cellular DNA. Gene dysregulation from chromosome 12 has triggered a cell to transform into a cancerous cell. Different types of genes are present in chromosome 12 that cause colon cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, ampulla of Vater cancer (Vater cancer), etc. These genes play their role in the development and the progression of cancer into metastasis, Epithelial to mesenchymal transition, and overall cancer growth. In this chapter, we have enlisted the genes responsible for cancer and their short introduction.

Keywords: Cancer, Cancerous Cell, Colon Cancer, Cancer Growth, Downregulated, Epithelial-Mesenchymal, Gene Dysregulation, Metastasis, Ovarian Cancer, Prostate Cancer.
