Glioma development is a multistep process, involving alterations in genetic and epigenetic mechanisms. Understanding the mechanisms and enzymes that promote epigenetic changes in gliomas are urgently needed to identify novel therapeutic targets. We examined the role of histone demethylase KDM1 in glioma progression. KDM1 was overexpressed in gliomas and its expression positively correlated with histological malignancy. Knockdown of KDM1 expression or its pharmacological inhibition using… CONTINUE READING
