Area: Cancer Epigenetics: Bmi1 regulates tumorgenesis of neuroblastoma cells A study published this year in the Journal Oncogene addresses the expressional regulation of Bmi1 and its downstream targets. The research was carried out in neuroblastoma (NB) cells and addressed questions of epigenetic alterations and its roles in the tumorigenesis of NB. Using an antibody specific for Bmi1 it was revealed that the expression of Bmi1 resulted in the acceleration of proliferation and colony formation in NB cells. »Additional antibodies against Bmi1 Read the whole study in detail here: Source: Oncogene. 2010 May 6;29(18):2681-90. Epub 2010 Mar 1. Bmi1 is a MYCN target gene that regulates tumorigenesis through repression of KIF1Bbeta and TSLC1 in neuroblastoma. Ochiai H et. al.
