Citation: Boominathan, MiRNA-based therapy for p53-mutated human tumors: MiRNA-19b suppresses the expression of p73α and promotes tumorigenesis via up regulation of its target gene, 3/February/2015, 12.24 am, Genome-2-Bio-Medicine Discovery center (GBMD), http://genomediscovery.org
Significance: This study suggests, for the first time, that MiRNA-19b, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may promote the stability and activity of tumor suppressor p53 homologue p73α. Thereby, it may promote tumor suppression. Given that tumor suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of different human cancers, this study suggests, for the first time, a therapeutic strategy as to how mutant p53 expressing human cancers can be cured; that is, by activating its un-mutated homologous proteins, such as p73. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “MiRNA-19b inhibitors” can be used to inhibit the progression of human tumors, including p53-mutated human tumors.
