reversing gene- and chromosome silencing
Breaking the silence: Discovery could lead to new treatments for cancer, sickle-cell anemia
Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have discovered a chemical compound that reverses a process called silencing, in which genes or chromosomal regions are shut off. Such inhibitors of gene silencing could have significant applications for treating a variety of malignancies, as well as sickle-cell anemia.
