  1. Yang G, Hurlin P. MNT and Emerging Concepts of MNT-MYC Antagonism. Genes (Basel). 2017;8: pubmed publisher
    ..In this review, we discuss the current understanding of MNT, its regulation and how, as a MYC antagonist, it functions both as a tumor suppressor and facilitator of MYC-driven proliferation and oncogenesis. ..

    ..Our results suggest that Mga functions as a dual-specificity transcription factor that regulates the expression of both Max-network and T-box family target genes. ..

    ..These results demonstrate a unique negative regulatory role for Mnt in governing key Myc functions associated with cell proliferation and tumorigenesis. ..

    ..The repressor with similar DNA binding specificity raised the possibility that Mnt may serve a general role as a Myc antagonist. ..

    Hurlin P, Huang J. The MAX-interacting transcription factor network. Semin Cancer Biol. 2006;16:265-74 pubmed
    ..Here we review the activities of MAX, its interaction partners, and recent results showing that tissues lacking the MAX-interacting protein MNT are predisposed to tumor formation. ..

    ..Here we review the activities of MYC, MNT and other MAX interacting proteins in the setting of T and B cell activation and oncogenesis. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: Myc proteins in cell biology and pathology. ..

    ..These findings suggest that a proliferation-independent and SOX9-dependent differentiation block is a key driving mechanism responsible for poor endochondral bone growth in achondroplasia disorders caused by mutations in FGFR3. ..

    ..These findings further define the mechanisms that control FGFR3 accumulation and contribute to skeletal pathology caused by mutations in FGFR3. ..
