Oncogenes . . . .
Thank you very much for joining us last week! It is exciting to see the field leaping so quickly now.
Re tissue specificity:
Analogy with a) reversibility of choriocarcinoma, and b) latency of initiated tumors that can be awakened much later with promoters -- would put some weight on tissue specificity of gene expression. One can of course also argue from evidence for selective DNA exposure for alternative conclusions.
Surely you will soon have some concrete evidence!
Yours,
Joshua Lederberg
