Abstract (English)

Aberrant DNA methylation of CpG islands (CGIs) is a common alteration during malignant transformation that leads to the abnormal silencing of tumor suppressor genes and plays a role in disease initiation and progression. The major aim of the present thesis was the implementation of methodologies to identify epigenetic marker genes that can be used for the diagnosis as well as for the targeted ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Tumorzellen zeichnen sich häufig durch ein verändertes DNA-Methylierungsmuster aus. Fehlerhafte DNA-Methylierung von CpG-Inseln (CGIs) kann zur abnormen Repression von Tumorsuppressorgenen führen und Tumorwachstum fördern. Hauptziel der vorliegenden Arbeit war es, Methoden zu etablieren, um diagnostisch oder therapeutisch verwertbare epigenetische Biomarker zu identifizieren. Desweiteren sollten ...
