  • The anti-CML therapy, imatinib (Glivec or Gleevec, depending on which country you are in) acts by inhibiting the BCR-ABL gene product (a gain-of-function mutant which persistently activates growth pathways).

  • These data support the notion that the ZNF9 protein may play a role in DM2 and that the RNA-mediated dominant gain-of-function model for myotonic dystrophy is not the only pathomechanism for the disease. in vivo biochemical function for ZNF9 has hindered the ability to clearly define the role that ZNF9 plays in DM2.
