“On the consequences of altered ribosome methylation in prostate cancer"
Elena Martens-Uzunova, Ph.D.
Department of Urology, Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands Ribosome biogenesis and function are highly energy-demanding and therefore tightly regulated to match cellular needs.

In cancer, major pathways that control ribosome biogenesis and function are often deregulated to ensure cellular survival and accommodate the continuous proliferation of tumor cells. Accumulating evidence demonstrates that the ribosomal methylation landscape is altered in different malignancies. In prostate cancer too, ribosomes undergo specific methylation changes that affect the tumorigenic characteristics of cancer cells. This opens new possibilities for the exploration of future therapeutic interventions.
