Abstract

Synthesis of ribosomes, the cellular protein synthetic machinery, is dysregulated during cancer leading to the hypothesis that it may be causative in the malignant process. This application will test this hypothesis using novel inhibitors or ribosome biogenesis in a mouse genetic model termed E�-MYC that faithfully that replicates human B-cell lymphoma. These studies will uncover novel mechanisms in malignant transformation and identify new therapeutics in the treatment of human cancer.
