Project description

A constitutional translocation in a neuroblasoma patient identified a new gene, NBPF1. In this project, we want to investigate the tumor suppressive role of NBPF1. For this, we will use an inducible cell system and RNA interference. We will also perform endogenous immunoprecipitations and the identification of specific partners will further elucidate the possible functions of NBPF1.
