Latest DNA methylation Stories
Many mechanisms change the activity of genes.
People with higher levels of folate in their red blood cells were more likely to have two tumor-suppressing genes shut down by methylation, a chemical off switch for genes.
A newly published insight into the biology of many kinds of less-aggressive but still lethal brain tumors, or gliomas, opens up a wide array of possibilities for new therapies.

There is new hope for people with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow.
DNA methylation plays an important role in many processes such as animal development, X-chromosome inactivation, and carcinogenesis.
