The molecular pathway of the adenoma–carcinoma sequence is termed the “suppressor” or “chromosomal instability” pathway and is characterized by loss or inactivation of large portions of chromosomes, whereas the serrated polyp–carcinoma sequence is termed the “mutator” pathway and is largely characterized by microsatellite instability where there are variations in areas of small microsatellite repeats within the chromosome as a result of uncorrected replication errors. A second minor pathway within the serrated polyp–carcinoma sequence is characterized by low microsatellite instability (MSI-low) cancers.
