174 Moore, Brent Christopher.Investigating colon tumor cell response to 5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine: analysis of the CDX2 promoter and its methylation status .Cytosine methylation silences gene activation and is indicative of an inactive chromatin state. This is especially true in tumors when tumor suppressor genes are silenced by methylation. Because methylation silencing is reversible, DNA methylation has been identified as a potential drug target. M...DNA; CDX Genesl2005-05
