MYCN is a master regulator controlling many processes necessary for tumor cell survival. Here, we unravel a microRNA network that causes tumor suppressive effects in MYCN-amplified neuroblastoma cells. In profiling studies, histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor treatment most strongly induced miR-183. Enforced miR-183 expression triggered apoptosis, and(More)
Inhibition of histone deacetylase (HDAC) activity as stand-alone or combination therapy represents a promising therapeutic approach in oncology. The pan- or class I HDAC inhibitors (HDACi) currently approved or in clinical studies for oncology give rise to dose-limiting toxicities, presumably because of the inhibition of several HDACs. This could(More)
Neuroblastoma is an embryonic solid tumor of neural crest origin and accounts for 11% of all cancer-related deaths in children. Novel therapeutic strategies are therefore urgently required. MYCN oncogene amplification, which occurs in 20% of neuroblastomas, is a hallmark of high risk. Here, we aimed to exploit molecular mechanisms that can be(More)
