Whijae Roh: ZNF397 Deficiency in Prostate Cancer

Whijae Roh, Senior Computational Biologist at Pfizer, made the following post on X:

“ZNF397 Deficiency Triggers TET2-driven Lineage Plasticity and AR-Targeted Therapy Resistance in Prostate Cancer

‘We identified Zinc Finger Protein 397 (ZNF397) as a bona fide coactivator of the androgen receptor (AR), essential for the transcriptional program governing AR-driven luminal lineage. ZNF397 deficiency facilitates the transition of cancer cell from an AR-driven luminal lineage to a Ten-Eleven Translocation 2 (TET2)-driven lineage plastic state, ultimately promoting resistance to therapies inhibiting AR signaling. Intriguingly, our findings indicate that a TET2 inhibitor can eliminate the resistance to AR targeted therapies in ZNF397-deficient tumors.'”
