Targeting Epigenetic Proteins to Prevent Breast Cancer

The epigenetic regulatory protein DNA methyltransferase 1 (green) is highly expressed in the luminal cells of mammary gland ducts (compared with basal cells, red). Treatment with the inhibitor decitabine (right) prevents luminal cell progenitors from expanding this population of cells in response to progesterone. Credit: Casey et al., 2018
