CHOP, Johns Hopkins-led Team Finds Changes to Chromatin-Related Genes in Aggressive Neuroblastomas | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A study in Nature Genetics suggests alterations to two chromatin-remodeling genes — ARID1A and ARID1B — are linked to particularly poor neuroblastoma outcomes.

The ARID1A/ARID1B association with survival time was discovered during a large-scale genomic analysis of the childhood cancer, which affects a set of neural crest cells destined to be part of the peripheral sympathetic nervous system.
