    The human cytomegalovirus IE2 is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein. A consensus IE2-binding site (IBS) contains two copies of the dinucleotide CG separated by 10 not well-conserved but AT-rich nucleotides. In this report, we demonstrated that the TATA box of the insulin-like growth factor...

    We explored the associations of aberrant DNA methylation patterns in 12 candidate genes with adult glioma subtype, patient survival, and gene expression of enhancer of zeste human homolog 2 (EZH2) and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 2 (IGFBP2). We analyzed 154 primary glioma tumors...
