Musashi2 (MSI2) is an RNA-binding protein that is highly expressed in precursor cells in the ventricular and subventricular zones of the developing mammalian CNS. Like the related MSI1, MSI2 has been suggested to be involved stem cell production and maintenance. MSI2 is the predominant MSI protein in hematopoietic stem cells, and its knockdown leads to reduced engraftment and depletion in vivo. Expression levels of MSI2 are elevated in myeloid leukemia cells lines, and MSI2 appears to cooperate with BCR-ABL1 to induce an aggressive leukemia; the level of MSI2 directly correlates with decreased survival in patients. MSI2 negatively regulates the asymmetric cell fate determinant NUMB, suggesting that this signaling pathway may provide future targets for future therapies.
