Teams Explore Epigenetic Consequences of Mutating Cancer-Associated Enzyme | GenomeWeb

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A trio of new studies in Nature are highlighting the ties between genetic mutations and epigenetic alterations in cancer — particularly the genome-wide methylation and transcriptional changes associated with mutations to the IDH1, a gene coding for the metabolic enzyme isocitrate dehydrogenase.
