IL-6-induced stimulation of c-myc translation in multiple myeloma cells is mediated by myc internal ribosome entry site function and the RNA-binding protein, hnRNP A1.


Prior work indicates that c-myc translation is up-regulated in multiple myeloma cells. To test a role for interleukin (IL)-6 in myc translation, we studied the IL-6-responsive ANBL-6 and IL-6-autocrine U266 cell lines as well as primary patient samples. IL-6 increased c-myc translation, which was resistant to rapamycin, indicating a mechanism independent of… (More)
