In a study recently published in the journal Oncogene, a research team led by Tan Ince, M.D., Ph.D., described the mechanisms that help the gene histone deacetylase (HDAC) 7 control other genes, driving breast cancer and helping maintain cancer stem cells. In addition, the paper showed HDAC7 activity is downstream from other HDAC molecules, particularly HDAC1, possibly making it a better therapeutic target for future
