    DNA/RNA Hypomethylation in Cancer Cells and Tissues
    Authors: Dr. Burong Hu , Dr. Dong Pan

    Evidence demonstrates that epigenetic alterations, such as DNA/RNA methylation alterations, chromatin remodeling and difference in microRNA expression, play key roles in a wide range of cellular processes and carcinogenesis. DNA/RNA methylation alterations were found in many cancer cells.
