The role of miRNAs in neuroblastoma tumor development

ABSTRACT: Neuroblastoma (NB) is an embryonic tumor arising from immature sympathetic nervous system progenitor cells. MYCN and ALK are driver oncogenes both of which are specifically expressed during early neurogenesis. This is in line with the assumption that NB arises through disruption of normal developmental processes. MYCN has a broad impact on the tumor phenotype; however, the details of the MYCN driven oncogenic program are far from clear. In recent studies we demonstrated that MYCN drives the expression of a defined set of miRNAs that tightly control the expression of several key MYCN target genes, including several components of the TGFβ signaling pathway. In order to gain further insight into the role of miRNAs in NB initiation and progression, we evaluated miRNA profiles of hyperplastic ganglia and tumors isolated from MYCN transgenic mice.

MYCN is a transcription factor that plays key roles in both normal development and cancer. In neuroblastoma, MYCN acts as a major oncogenic driver through pleiotropic effects regulated by multiple protein encoding genes as well as microRNAs (miRNAs). MYCN activity is tightly controlled at the level of transcription and protein stability through various mechanisms. Like most genes, MYCN is further controlled by miRNAs, but the full complement of all miRNAs implicated in this process has not been  ...[more]
