From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:

Given that: (1) Cancer suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of human cancers of different tissue origin; (2) p53 pathway is altered in about 80% of tumors.; (3) our understanding is incomplete in terms of molecular targets and the oncogenic/malignant pathways involved in mutant p53-overexpressing tumors; (4) cancer causes the highest economic loss compared to all the known causes of death worldwide; and (5) cancer causes the considerable economic loss worldwide, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; (ii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; and (iii) a way to effectively treat and stall metastatic progression and relapse of mutant p53-overexpressing human cancers.


From therapeutic strategy to Research Findings:

(i) Therapeutic strategy: 

This study suggests a therapeutic strategy for stalling the progression of p53-deficient/deleted or mutant-p53 expressing metastatic cancers. By activating tumor suppressor p53’s unmutated “homologous protein such as TAp73/p63” in p53-deficient or mutant-p53 expressing metastatic cancer cells, one can stall their progression.

(ii) Research findings:  

MiRNA-486, by decreasing the expression of its target genes, it may not only increase the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as TAp73, TAp63, PTEN, etc., but also increase a number of metastatic suppressor genes, such as TPM1, TIMP3, BTG2, PDCD4, SPRY1/2 etc. Thereby, it may inhibit the migration and invasion of metastatic cancer cells expressing mutant-p53 (figure1).

Figure 1. MiR-486 functions as an activator of  tumor suppressor genes, such as TAp73, TAp63, PTEN, PDCD4, BTG2, etc., and metastatic suppressor genes, such as TPM1, TIMP3, SPRY1/2 etc., in human metastatic mutant-p53 expressing tumors


Therapeutic opportunity:

Given the ability of MiR-486 to induce the expression of TAp73, TAp63, PTEN, TPM1, TIMP3, BTG2, PDCD4, and SPRY1/2 in p53-mutated human tumors, pharmacological formulations encompassing “MiRNA-486 or its activators or MiR-486 in combination with any of the known anticancer agents” may be used to inhibit the progression of p53-mutated invasive metastatic tumors.
