The progression of EOC is characterized by a series of combined epigenetic aberrations, including the most important of those determined by the loss of methylation of certain regions of DNA encoding genes such as Ras-association domain-containing family 1 [(RASSF1A) tumor suppressor], death-associated protein kinase [(DAPK) protein kinase associated with the regulation of apoptosis], human sulfa- tase-I [(hSulf-1) sulfatase, which plays a key role in the regulation of apoptosis], breast cancer 1 gene [(BRCA1) tumor suppressor gene, involved in the processes of DNA repair], and HOXAI0 (gene required to promote many transcription factors).
