The Role of ST-18 in Inv16 LeukemogenesisPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The human gene Suppression of Tumorigenicity-18 (ST-18) encodes a zinc finger protein previously associated with breast carcinoma, however it may have an oncogenic role in the development of Inversion 16 leukemia (inv16). This project assayed the level of ST-18 in inv16 leukemic lines compared to unrelated cancer lines. The data show that ST-18 is more highly expressed in an inv16 acute myeloid leukemic cell line (Me-1) compared to Kasumi-1 and U937 non-inv16 cancer lines. In addition, murine ST-18 was successfully cloned into plasmid vector pMSCV2.2 for use in future over-expression experiments.
