Adhesion-independent growth is a neoplastic phenotype that is inducible in Rat la fibroblasts by enforced MYC expression. The c-Myc protein has been well characterized as a transcription factor, yet the molecular basis of c- Myc-induced neoplastic transformation has remained elusive. In this report, we demonstrate a link between ectopic MYC expression, deregulated cyclin A levels, and adhesion-independent growth.
