- MTDH is a novel transcriptional co-factor that controls RKIP transcription, which is essential for breast cancer progression.
- VEZF1 and ERCC6 simultaneously target RKIP and one or more of the autophagy genes in prostate cancer.
- RKIP and its co-expressed autophagy genes are co-regulated by common transcription factors as part of the same functional unit in developing prostate cancer.
- The metastasis suppressor RKIP is on the receiving end of two significant regulatory mechanisms. One involves RELA (transcription factor P65) and SNAI1, which were previously reported to inhibit PEBP1. The other involves the estrogen receptor (ESR1), which induces PEBP1 through the kinase NME1.
- Pharmacologically manipulating RKIP reverses the metastatic potential of breast cancer cells.
