The oncogene MCTS1, discovered as an amplified product in a subset of T-cell lymphoma lines, has been implicated in cell cycle progression and conferring a growth advantage in lymphomas and breast cancer. Recent research shows that it modulates the MAPK pathway and acts as a translational activator both in vivo and in vitro. In breast cancer cells, expression of MCTS1 confers aggressive properties and inhibits apoptosis. This article will review these data and its implications on our understanding of cancer.
