New article shows that there are extensive chemical modifications to the DNA of prostate cancers called DNA methylation
The changes are known to affect gene regulation, and we find that genes regulated by a specific protein, called EZH2, are particularly targeted by this chemical modification. Furthermore, these methylation changes, since they are specific for prostate cancer, could form the basis of new tools to diagnose prostate cancer.
