Thesis Title
Identification of novel cis-regulatory elements in the cadherin family and characterization of their role in cancer-related processes
Abstract
Cadherin genes have been for long recognized as key elements in several pathologies, from muscular dystrophy to cancer. The biologically hazardous impact of cadherin impairment is directly linked to the fundamental roles...
