The G0/G1 switch gene 2 (G0S2) is methylated and silenced in a wide range of human cancers. The protein encoded by G0S2 is an endogenous inhibitor of lipid catabolism that directly binds adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL). ATGL is the rate-limiting step in triglyceride metabolism. Although the G0S2 gene is silenced in cancer, the impact of ATGL in the(More)
Several recent reports have suggested that the G0/G1 switch gene 2 (G0S2) is a potential tumor suppressor in leukemia. Here we show that deletion of the G0s2 gene in mouse does not affect the latency of cancer progression in the Eμ-Myc model of lymphoma. Our findings do not rule out the possibility that G0S2 may be playing a role in other forms of leukemia,(More)
