Gene RIF (12)

26668315 Data suggest MNK1/MNK2 stimulate mRNA translation but only of mRNA containing both 5-prime-terminal cap and hairpin duplex; this stimulation involves up-regulation of phosphorylation/mRNA un-winding activity of eIF4E (via decreased binding to eIF4G).
26147685 Data show that interferon-gamma regulated the metabolism and mRNA translation of macrophages by targeting the kinases mTORC1 and MNK1/2, both of which converge on the selective regulator of translation initiation eukaryotic initiation factor-4E (eIF4E).
25527453 Data suggest that a combined pharmacologic inhibition of mTORC1 and Mnk1/2 kinases offers a therapeutic opportunity in blast crisis-chronic myeloid leukemia (BC-CML).
25403230 MNK1 and MNK2 inhibition ablates eIF4E1 phosphorylation and concurrently enhances eIF4E3 expression in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
25193863 Provide evidence for the existence of a Mnk2/eIF4E-controlled feedback loop in medulloblastoma cells that accounts for resistance to mTORC1 inhibitors.
23831578 eIF4E phosphorylation is enhanced by Rapamycin, which activates Mnk2a
23814052 These findings provide evidence for key and essential roles of the Mnk kinase pathway in the generation of the antineoplastic effects of type I IFNs in Jak2V617F-dependent myeloproliferative neoplasms.
22797067 MNK2-dependent phosphorylation of eIF4E represents a novel drug resistance, pro-survival pathway in pancreatic ductal carcinoma.
21149447 siRNA-mediated Mnk1/2 knockdown results in partial reversal of the suppressive effects of IFNgamma on human CD34+-derived myeloid (CFU-GM) and erythroid (BFU-E) progenitors.
16856496 Mnk2 can interact with CBC(VHL) complex, and is probably one of the new substrates of the CBC(VHL) complex.
