A significant fraction of untreated DCIS will evolve into invasive cancer. ras homologue I (ARHI) is an imprinted tumor suppressor gene that is expressed in normal breast(More)
A Ras homologue member I (ARHI) is a novel imprinted tumor suppressor gene whose expression is frequently lost in breast and ovarian cancers. This small GTP-binding protein is a member of the Ras superfamily with significant homology to both Ras and Rap. Unlike the Ras oncogene, however, ARHI inhibits tumor cell growth. To elucidate the mechanisms by which(More)
