Musashi1, a neural RNA-binding protein, plays an important role in regulating cell differentiation in precursor cells. Musashi-1 (Msi-1) has been shown to increase the accumulation of tau isoforms in intracellular inclusions in dementia. It may play a role in the pathogenesis of various neurodegenerative disorders.
Musashi1 has also been detected in human tumor tissues such as gliomas and melanomas, suggesting its involvement in cancer development. Msi-1 also appears to play be an vital role in the development of several types of carcinoma such as human hepatoma, and may be a useful molecular marker for tumor detection.
