Chronic inflammation induces a novel epigenetic program that is conserved in intestinal adenomas and in colorectal cancer.

Abstract

Chronic inflammation represents a major risk factor for tumor formation, but the underlying mechanisms have remained largely unknown. Epigenetic mechanisms can record the effects of environmental challenges on the genome level and could therefore play an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammation-associated tumors. Using single-base methylation maps… (More)
