Molecular Evolution of the Ha-ras-1 Oncogene: Relationship between DNA Methylation, Frequency of CpG Dinucleotides and Binding to the Sp1 Transacting Factor
One of the molecular events involved in the regulation of the expression of cellular oncogenes is the interaction between transcriptional factors and target DNA sequences present in the 5′ genomic portion1.
