Syros Pharmaceuticals Announces New Research Published on Role of Cell Signaling Pathways in Gene Control

Syros Pharmaceuticals announced the publication of a study that demonstrated how gene control components, known as super-enhancers, act as functional units that concentrate multiple signaling pathways at key genes and can coordinate transcriptional activity. This work demonstrates how these gene control components provide a platform for signaling pathways to regulate key genes that control cell identity in normal cells and in cancer.
