Recent evidence points to Myc--a multifaceted bHLHZip transcription factor deregulated in the majority of human cancers--as a priority target for therapy. How to target Myc is less clear, given its involvement in a variety of key functions in healthy cells. Here we report on the action mechanism of the Myc interfering molecule termed Omomyc, which… (More)
Gliomas are the most common primary tumours affecting the adult central nervous system and respond poorly to standard therapy. Myc is causally implicated in most human tumours and the majority of glioblastomas have elevated Myc levels. Using the Myc dominant negative Omomyc, we previously showed that Myc inhibition is a promising strategy for cancer… (More)
Normative cortical processing depends on precise interactions between excitatory and inhibitory neurons. In this issue of Neuron, Lippi et al. (2016) identify miR-101 as a master regulator coordinating molecular programs during development that ultimately impact the activity of mature networks.
