MicroRNAs in B-cell lymphomas: how a complex biology gets more complex.
Brno, Czech Republic. In Leukemia, May 2015
We focus on miR-contribution to the regulation of important signalling pathways (such as NF-κB, PI3K/AKT and TGF-β), BCR signalling and its modulators (such as PTEN, SHIP-1, ZAP-70, GAB1 and BTK), anti- and pro-apoptotic proteins (such as BCL2, MCL1, TCL1, BIM, p53 and SIRT1) and transcription factors (such as MYC, MYB, PU.1, FOXP1 and BCL6).
miR deregulation in CLL.
Columbus, United States. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2012
For example, in indolent CLL, 13q14 deletions targeting miR-15/16 initiate the disease, while in aggressive CLL miR-181 targets the critical TCL1 oncogene and can also be used as a progression marker.Here we discuss the foremost findings about the role of microRNAs in CLL pathogenesis, and how this knowledge can be used to identify new approaches to treat CLL.
