BACKGROUND Epigenetic regulation of gene expression is a common feature of cancer development and progression. The search for new biomarkers and tools to detect cancer in its early stages has unveiled the usefulness of epigenetics and genes epigenetically regulated as potential targets. Among them, genes encoding mucins have been shown to be regulated by… CONTINUE READING
