Hepatitis B virus (HBV) exists as quasispecies (QS). However, the evolutionary characteristics of haplotypes of HBV X gene in the hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) microenvironment remain unclear. Mutations across X gene are essential for the tumorigenicity of HBV X protein (HBx). However, the functional phenotypes of many mutant HBx remain unknown. This study aims to compare the characteristics of X gene evolution between tumour and non-tumour tissues in HCC patients and investigate the tumorigenic phenotype of...
