The Tumor Suppressor Gene Hypermethylated in Cancer 1 Is Transcriptionally Regulated by E2F1
The Hypermethylated in Cancer 1 (HIC1) gene encodes a zinc finger transcriptional repressor that cooperates with p53 to suppress cancer development. We and others recently showed that HIC1 is aExpand

Inactivation of the hypermethylated in cancer 1 tumour suppressor--not just a question of promoter hypermethylation?
The chromosomal region 17p13.3 is frequently deleted or epigenetically silenced in a variety of human cancers. It includes the hypermethylated in cancer 1 (HIC1) gene placed telomerically to the p53Expand

HIC1 tumour suppressor gene is suppressed in acute myeloid leukaemia and induced during granulocytic differentiation
A hallmark of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a block in differentiation caused by deregulated gene expression. The tumour suppressor Hypermethylated In Cancer 1 (HIC1) is a transcriptionalExpand
