Clusters of Cooperating Tumor-Suppressor Genes Are Found in Large Regions Deleted in Common Cancers, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Study

Published: May 08, 2012

Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center have amassed strong experimental evidence implying that commonly occurring large chromosomal deletions that are seen in many cancer types contain areas harboring multiple functionally linked genes whose loss, they posit, confers a survival advantage on growing tumors.
