Introduction: What they say:  

The 1989 Nobel prize winner in Chemistry, Prof. Thomas R. Cech from the BioFrontiers Institute, USA has published a research paper in the 13 December 2012 Nature (492(7428):285-9; and I.F: >42) stating that “The TEL patch of telomere protein TPP1 mediates telomerase recruitment and processivity.”  This study provides mechanistic insights into how TPP1 regulates telomerase function.


What we say: 

In connection with this finding, Dr Boominathan, Founder Director-cum-chief scientist of GBMD, reports that: Anti-telomerase cancer therapy: MiRNA-204-5p suppresses the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1) and inhibits cancer progression via down-regulation of its target gene


Significance:

Given that: (1) over 90% human tumors overexpress immortality gene telomerase; (2) cancer causes the highest economic loss compared to all the known causes of death worldwide, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a way to inhibit telomerase activity in human tumors, to increase the efficacy of anticancer therapy;  (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; (iii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; (iv) a way to effectively treat cancers that are resistant to anti-cancer drugs; and (v) a way to effectively treat and eradicate metastatic progression of cancer.


Research Findings:

miRNA-204-5p, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may suppress the expression of Tripeptidyl Peptidase 1 (TPP1). Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “miRNA-204-5p activators may be used to treat human cancers that specifically overexpress immortality gene telomerase.
