  1. This table lists the role of H3K36me3-associated epigenetic regulators in different cancer types, including their genetic alternations, related cellular signaling pathways, and which stage of cancer processes their predominantly affect. Pediatric cancer refers to glioblastoma, chondroblastoma, giant cell tumors of bone. The symbol “/” means unknown
