Idea Proposed/Formulated by: Dr L Boominathan Ph.D.
Significance: Cancer 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 by activating its “unmutated homologous proteins”, such as TAp73. MiRNA-214, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of p53 homologue TAp63γ. Thereby, it may promote tumor suppression. Together, this study suggests a therapeutic strategy as to how one can cure cancer, by activating an alternative cancer suppressor, with an miRNA-214. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “MiRNA-214 activators” can be used to inhibit the progression of human tumors, including p53-mutated human tumors.
