It may be that papillomas without ras mutations are those induced by TPA and destined to regress, but it is also feasible that ras activation can occur "spontaneously" at later stages and contributes to evolution of the neoplasm toward malignancy. Ve now have found occasional papillomas in mice treated only with TPA that also have the B-ras A to T codon 61 mutation attributed in the initiation promotion studies to the specific binding of DMBA to adenine and subsequent transversion by mispairing of A to T (unpublished results).
