Gene silencing by DNA methylation in haematological malignancies.
The past decade has seen an explosion of interest in the epigenetics of cancer, with an increasing understanding that this form of genomic modification plays a critical role in pathogenesis. The malignant phenotype results from a step-wise increase of both genetic abnormalities and epigenetic modifications, leading to dysregulation of critical genes controlling cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. The methylation of CpG islands within gene promoters is a major epigenetic transcriptiona...Expand abstract
