The tmp gene, encoding a membrane protein, is a c-Myc target with a tumorigenic activity.

The c-Myc oncoprotein induces cell proliferation and transformation through its activity as a transcription factor. Uncovering the genes regulated by c-Myc is an essential step for understanding these processes. We recently isolated the tumor-associated membrane protein gene, Tmp, from a c-myc-induced mouse brain tumor. Here we show that Tmp is specifically… CONTINUE READING
