DFNA5 promoter methylation a marker for breast tumorigenesis

Abstract

BACKGROUND Identification of methylation markers that are sensitive and specific for breast cancer may improve early detection. We hypothesize that DFNA5 promoter methylation can be a valuable epigenetic biomarker, based upon strong indications for its role as tumor suppressor gene and its function in regulated cell death. RESULTS Statistically different… (More)
