DNMTs are required for delayed genome instability caused by radiation (2012)
Journal Article
Armstrong, C. A., Jones, G. T., Anderson, R., Iyer, P., Narayanan, D., Sandhu, J., …Tufarelli, C. (2012). DNMTs are required for delayed genome instability caused by radiation. Epigenetics, 7(8), https://doi.org/10.4161/epi.21094

The ability of ionizing radiation to initiate genomic instability has been harnessed in the clinic where the localized delivery of controlled doses of radiation is used to induce cell death in tumor cells. Though very effective as a therapy, tumor re... Read More about DNMTs are required for delayed genome instability caused by radiation.
