Achinko DA, Ojwank AME, Dormer A., Functional diversity of melanoma antigen proteins, Onl J Vet Res., 26 (12): 920-948, 2022. Evidence showing functional diversity of melanoma antigen proteins (MAGE) variants and interactions that could favor malignancy of tumors is described. Through protein-protein interaction networks, HDAC1, RARA, P53 and SNW1 proteins were identified as foundation for processes governing MAGE protein network. Involvement of these proteins in various cancer pathways implicated subclass A protein MAGE B2 as an essential lethal protein and potential molecule vaccine target and marker for diagnosis.
