Scientists Find the Key DNA Structures Promoting Tumor Growth

DNA structure

Genetic mutations increase the risk of cancer, but other “enhancer” elements of genes also have an impact on the worsening of the disease. According to a recent article from Case Western Reserve University researchers published on Nature Communications, scientists found that changes in the DNA enhancer region of the oncogene affect the growth of colorectal cancer. Therefore, this finding can be used as a target for future drug research.  …
