"Smad"eningly erratic: target gene methylation determines whether TGFbeta promotes or suppresses malignant glioma.

TGFbeta functions as a tumor suppressor in some contexts and a tumor promoter in others. In a recent issue of Cancer Cell, Bruna et al. (2007) shed light on an epigenetic mechanism that underlies this schizophrenic behavior in malignant glioma. Their findings highlight a stem cell/cancer link...and a potential blind spot in large-scale cancer genome sequencing projects.
