Profs. Drs. R I Gregory, Camargo FD and their co-workers from Boston Children’s Hospital, MA, USA; Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology and Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; and Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Boston, MA, USA had reported in the prestigious journal Cell (Feb 27, 2014) that “Hippo Signaling Regulates Microprocessor and Links Cell-Density-Dependent miRNA Biogenesis to Cancer”
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: An insight into activating tumor suppressor MiRNA network in human cancer cells: Verteporfin promotes widespread miRNA biogenesis via down regulation of its target gene. This data may suggest that Verteporfin could function as a potent anti-cancer agent in human cancers by activating the network of tumor suppressor miRNAs.
