Medical Definition of C-oncogene

1. A normal gene which has a tumour-producing insert that may have originated from a virus in it, turning it into a proto-oncogene. When these genes are sufficiently mutated, amplified, or over-expressed (transcribed too many times), they can begin to produce cancers. (05 Jan 1998)
