Arsenic trioxide inhibits DNA methyltransferase and restores methylation-silenced genes in human liver cancer cells.
In the present study, we investigated methylation status of the CpG islands of some major tumor suppressor genes both in human hepatocellular carcinoma and liver cancer cell lines and examinedExpand

Chronic oral exposure to inorganic arsenate interferes with methylation status of p16INK4a and RASSF1A and induces lung cancer in A/J mice.
Although inorganic arsenate (iAs(V)) or arsenite (iAs(III)) is clearly a human carcinogen, it has been difficult to produce tumors in rodents. In the present study, we orally administered iAs(V) toExpand

Condensin I-mediated mitotic chromosome assembly requires association with chromokinesin KIF4A.
The chromokinesin KIF4A has been implicated in shaping mitotic chromosomes, but its functional relationship to condensin complexes remains controversial. Here, we found that, in mitosis, KIF4AExpand
