Epigenetics & Cancer Genomics

The field of cancer epigenetics is evolving rapidly on several fronts. Advances in our understanding of chromatin structure, histone modification, transcriptional activity and DNA methylation have resulted in an increasingly integrated view of epigenetics. In response to these insights, epigenetic therapy is expanding to include combinations of histone deacetylase inhibitors and DNA methyltransferase inhibitors. Zebularine, an orally administerable DNA methyltransferase inhibitor, has been a very promising recent addition to our arsenal of potentially useful drugs for epigenetic therapy. Epigenetics refers to alternate phenotypic states that are not based in differences in genotype, and are potentially reversible, but are generally stably maintained during cell division. The narrow interpretation of this concept is that of stable differential states of gene expression. 

The potential reversibility of epigenetic states offers exciting opportunities for novel cancer drugs that can reactivate epigenetically silenced tumor-suppressor genes. Epigenetic changes in cancer cells not only provide novel targets for drug therapy but also offer unique prospects for cancer diagnostics  The major interest in cancer epigenetics as a diagnostic tool is in localized epigenetic silencing. It is clear from this bird's-eye overview that the field of cancer epigeneticsis in flux. We can expect to see clinical implementation of both epigeneticcancer therapy and epigenetic cancer diagnostics in the next decade. Epigenetic control defects in cancer cells represent an emerging new area of investigation, where significant breakthroughs in the identification of the underlying molecular defects are anticipated in the next few years.
