Viral DNA sequence a possible trigger for breast cancer

...or breast cancer. The DNA sequence in question is usually found in immune cells and helps trigger the activation and proliferation of the cells. These sequences have also been found in proteins from some other cancer-causing viruses such as Epstein Barr virus and Kaposi's sarcoma virus, but what role this s...

...tumor viruses, of mutated genes, and of normal but usually inactive genes. The study reports that CTCL develops from a small subset of lymphocytes that are pre-programmed to respond to self-antigens exposed during normal cell death.

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...gene, H19, whose sequence overlaps the region that usually shuts off one copy of IGF2. As a result, these mice lack H19 and have double IGF2. To isolate the effect of the extra IGF2, Rolf Ohlsson at the Uppsala University, Sweden, developed a set of mice missing only the control region for IGF2; their H19 g...

Columbia research lifts major hurdle to gene therapy for cancer
