The MYCN protooncogene is involved in the control of cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival of neuroblasts. Deregulation of MYCN by gene amplification contributes to neuroblastoma development and is strongly correlated to advanced disease and poor outcome, emphasizing the urge for new therapeutic strategies targeting MYCN function.

The Mad family proteins are transcriptional repressors belonging to the basic region/helix-loop-helix/leucine zipper family. They share a common obligatory dimerization partner, Max, with the oncoprotein c-Myc and antagonize the function of Myc to activate transcription. The Myc/Max/Mad network has therefore been suggested to function as a molecular switch(More)
Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) hold great promise for applications in regenerative medicine and pharmaceutical development. Such applications require cell culture methods and reagents that are chemically defined, xeno-free, scalable, and low-cost. Herein, we describe non-mechanical passaging of hPSCs on spider silk films under chemically defined and(More)
