Gastrointestinal tumors can occur in cells of the nervous system, which control the muscles of the digestive tract.
Within the last 10 years, researchers have found that the majority of adults who develop the tumors have mutations in two genes.
Researcher say that tracing the roots of the disease to cellular respiration has yielded a promising lead on how the tumors might form. The finding may also lead to the development of treatments for types of the tumors that have not responded to traditional therapies.
