Understanding the role of the Guanosine Trimethylase TGS1 in Acute myeloid leukaemia

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Thursday, January 03, 2019
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

RNA methylation is a reversible post-translational modification to RNA that epigenetically numerous biological processes. The biological and molecular functions of RNA methylation are generally very poorly understood, both in normal and pathological biological processes.
Recently we identified the RNA Guanosine trimethylase TGS1 as a factor specifically required for the proliferation of Acute myeloid leukaemia cells (AML). Trimethylation of guanosine has been previously reported on Small nuclear non-coding RNAs and on a specific subset of mRNAs. The aim of the project will be to better understand the role of TGS1 and to characterise it as a potential therapeutic target in AML.
