Abstract

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is believed to arise from esophageal mucosa through accumulation of both genetic and epigenetic changes. DNA methylation is a critical epigenetic mechanism involved in key cellular processes and its deregulation has been linked to many human can...read more

Carcinoma, Squamous Cell

Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.

DNA Methylation

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Histones and Splicing (Keystone)

Epigenetic marks on histones can lead to gene expression via transcription or repression. Recently, it was discovered that histone marks not only play a role in gene expression but are also crucial for RNA splicing. Discover the latest research on histones and splicing in this feed.

Perturb-seq

Perturb-seq has combined CRISPR gene inactivation and single-cell rna-sequencing (scRNA-seq) and is the newest addition to the geneticist's arsenal, providing scientists with study methods for functional genomics. Discover the latest research here.

DNA Methylation and Cancer (Keystone)

DNA methylation in cancer plays a variety of roles, helping to change the healthy regulation of gene expression to a disease pattern. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation and cancer by following this feed.

Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma is often found in the upper and middle part of the esophagus and arises from the squamous epithelium. Discover the latest research on Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma here.

Histones and Splicing

Epigenetic marks on histones can lead to gene expression via transcription or repression. Recently, it was discovered that histones marks not only play a role in gene expression but are also crucial for RNA splicing. Discover the latest research on histones and splicing here.

Cancer Epigenetics & Metabolism (Keystone)

Epigenetic changes are present and dysregulated in many cancers, including DNA methylation, non-coding RNA segments and post-translational protein modifications. The epigenetic changes may or may not provide advantages for the cancer cells. This feed focuses on the relationship between cell metabolism, epigenetics and tumor differentiation.

Esophageal Carcinoma

Esophageal carcinoma has two main subtypes, esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma and esophageal adenocarcinoma. Several factors, both genetic and environmental, have been shown to increase risk of developing esophageal carcinoma. Here is the latest research.

DNA Methylation (Keystone)

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Cancer Epigenetics and Senescence (Keystone)

Epigenetic changes are present and dysregulated in many cancers, including DNA methylation, non-coding RNA segments and post-translational protein modifications. The epigenetic changes may be involved in regulating senescence in cancer cells. This feed captures the latest research on cancer epigenetics and senescence.
