Identification of novel cancer-associated splice variants is of potential diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic importance. NF-Y transcription factor is comprised of NF-YA, NF-YB and NF-YC subunits, binds inverted CCAAT-boxes in ≈70% of gene promoters, regulates > 1000 cancer-associated genes and proteins involved in proliferation, staminality, differentiation, apoptosis, metabolism and is subject to component alternative splicing. RT-PCR evaluation of alternative NF-YA splicing in primary human neuroblastomas (NBs), led to discovery of a novel NF-YAx splice variant, also expressed during mouse embryo development and induced by doxorubicin in NB cells.

Abstract

Identification of novel cancer-associated splice variants is of potential diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic importance. NF-Y transcription factor is comprised of NF-YA, NF-YB and NF-YC subunits, binds inverted CCAAT-boxes in ≈70% of gene promoters, regulates > 1000 cancer-associated genes and proteins involved in proliferation, staminality, differentiation, apoptosis, metabolism and is subject to component alternative splicing. RT-PCR evaluation of alternative NF-YA splicing in primary human neuroblastomas (NBs), led to discovery of a novel NF-YAx splice variant, also expressed during mouse embryo development and induced by doxorubicin in NB cells. Here, we report the discovery and characterisation of NF-YAx and discus its potential roles in NB.
