A miR boost enables acute leukemia cells to mature
Date:4/3/2009

cks DNMT1 also, but indirectly," Garzon says.

The miR, it turns out, targets another protein called Sp1 that boosts production of the DNMT1 protein.

Thus, low levels of the miR may result in lots of Sp1 protein and of DNMT1, which busily adds the chemical units that silences genes. High levels of the miR, on the other hand, may keep the amount of Sp1 low, so there is little DNMT1 and much less gene silencing.

"Our paper explains why this miR is a powerful demethylating agent," Garzon says. "It shows that putting this miR back into leukemia cell lines and leukemia cells from patients causes a drop in global DNA methylation and reactivates protective tumor suppressor genes, which allows the cells to differentiate and mature."
