Abstract: In contrast to the intensely studied genetic and epigenetic changes that induce host cell transformation to initiate tumor development, those that promote the malignant progression of cancer remain poorly defined. As emerging evidence suggests that the hypoxic tumor microenvironment could re-model the chromatin-associated proteome (chromatome) to induce epigenetic changes and alter gene expression in cancer cells, we hypothesized that hypoxia-driven evolution of the chromatome promotes malignant changes and t…
