The Myc family proteins are key regulators of animal growth and development. dMyc, the only Drosophila member of the Myc gene family, is orthologous to the mammalian c-Myc oncoprotein. Extensive studies have revealed much about both upstream regulators and downstream target genes in the sphere of Myc regulation. Here, we review some of the critical discoveries made using the Drosophila model, in particular those studies that have explored the essential role of the Myc family in growth and cell cycle progression and identified many of the upstream signals and downstream targets common to both c-Myc and dMyc.

More about this publication?
  • Current Drug Targets aims to cover the latest and most outstanding developments on the medicinal chemistry and pharmacology of molecular drug targets e.g. disease specific proteins, receptors, enzymes, genes. Each issue of the journal will be devoted to a single timely topic, with series of in-depth reviews, written by leaders in the field, covering a range of current topics on drug targets. These issues will be organized and led by a guest editor who is a recognized expert in the overall topic. As the discovery, identification, characterisation and validation of novel human drug targets for drug discovery continues to grow; this journal will be essential reading for all pharmaceutical scientists involved in drug discovery and development.
