Summary
Providing the most relevant information available, this work presents in-depth discussions of DNA methylation analysis and cancer, histone modifications and cancer, and other epigenetic aspects of cancer. Examining future directions in cancer research, this text offers a comprehensive overview of current and potential new epigenetics advancements. Back Cover Copy Catalog no. 45792, "Cancer Epigenetics Shelving Guide: Biological Sciences Elucidating" the most-recent advances in the genomic breakthrough of epigenetics, this cutting-edge work covers a wide array of aspects ranging from the role of epigenetics in the basic mechanisms of tumorigenesis, to the newest epigenetic drugs being developed and used for cancer therapy."Cancer Epigenetics" presents in-depth discussions of DNA methylation alterations, histone and RNA modifications, and nucleosome remodeling, which are all intimately involved in the formation of tumors. It also analyzes metabolic influences on cancer epigenetics and advances in epigenetic cancer gene therapy. With stand-alone chapters authored by research pioneers in the field, this definitive resource - discusses the recent advances in the role of epigenetics in tumor initiation, progression, and metastasis. It describes the importance of dietary and environmental factors on cancer epigenetics. It ranges from basic science to landmark discoveries in clinical practice. It highlights diagnostic and prognostic aspects of epigenetics in cancer and advances in gene therapy. It covers emerging aspects, such as RNA epigenetics, chromosomal position effects, epigenomics, and the role of polycomb-group genes in cancer."Cancer Epigenetics" is an indispensable reference for those with interests ranging from the basic mechanisms of tumor biology to cancer therapy. Serving as a core textbook for advanced courses with a focus on genetic diseases, molecular biology, and/or cancer, this seminal work answers the call for a thorough and authoritative book that covers the critical and contemporary aspects of this revolutionary field
