TLDR
Although the intracellular transduction of the Notch signal is remarkably simple, with no secondary messengers, this pathway functions in an enormous diversity of developmental processes and its dysfunction is implicated in many cancers. Expand
Epigenetic stem cell signature in cancer
TLDR
It is reported that stem cell Polycomb group targets are up to 12-fold more likely to have cancer-specific promoter DNA hypermethylation than non-targets, supporting a stem cell origin of cancer in which reversible gene repression is replaced by permanent silencing, locking the cell into a perpetual state of self-renewal and thereby predisposing to subsequent malignant transformation.

TLDR
The mechanisms of gene silencing in cancer and clinical applications of this phenomenon are reviewed, especially tumor-suppressor genes. Expand
