Epigenetics, microRNAs and cancer: an update

Abstract

Genetics alone cannot explain disease: in fact, people sharing the same DNA sequence (monozygotic twins) often present different levels of disease penetrance. The term epigenetics partially explains this phenomenon. Originally introduced to name the causal interactions between genes and their products, bringing the phenotype into being, it was subsequently… (More)
