MYCT1 was initially identified as a novel target of the c-Myc oncogene in myeloid cells. It is a widely expressed nuclear protein whose overexpression can promote apoptosis, alteration of morphology, enhancement of anchorage-independent cell growth, tumorigenic conversion, promotion of genomic instability, and inhibition of hematopoietic differentiation. MYCT1 binds to the promoters of several c-Myc-regulated genes and it has been suggested that the phenotypes seen in MYCT1-overexpressing cells are a result of the deregulation of these genes. RUNX1-ETO, a fusion protein made up of RUNX1 and ETO, is thought to deregulate the proliferation and responsiveness of human hematopoietic progenitor cells downstream of MYCT1.
