Knockdown of RNF2 induces apoptosis by regulating MDM2 and p53 stability

RNF2, also known as Ring1B/Ring2, is a component of the polycomb repression complex 1. RNF2 is highly expressed in many tumors, suggesting that it might have an oncogenic function, but the mechanism is unknown. Here, we show that knockdown of RNF2 significantly inhibits both cell proliferation and colony formation in soft agar, and induces apoptosis in… CONTINUE READING
