Description

Recent findings by our group have been instrumental in the development of the novel selective inhibitors of RNA Polymerase I (Pol I) (Drygin et al., Cancer Research, 2011; Bywater et al. Cancer Cell, 2012). This work has led to the fundamental discovery that ribosomal gene transcription by Pol I is not simply a “housekeeping” process in cancer cells but is highly regulated to maintain their viability (Bywater et al. Nature Reviews Cancer, 2013). Strikingly, inhibition of Pol I transcription...[Show more]
