We propose a general model for neoplastic development which postulates that the loss of methyl groups from 5-methylcytosines (5-mC) involved in the control of gene expression may initiate neoplastic transformation and give rise to the aberrant phenotype of the transformed cell. Interference with normal patterns of methylation can be envisioned to occur by a(More)
Inorganic pyrophosphatase (EC 3.6.1.1) has been purified to electrophoretic homogeneity from the soluble portion of the cytoplasm of rat Hepatoma 3924A and rat liver. It has a specific activity of 600 to 700 mumol inorganic orthophosphate liberated per min per mg protein at 25 degrees, a value in the same range as the highly purified enzymes from yeast and(More)
