Expression of the cell cycle inhibitor p15INK4b is suppressed by the Myc oncoprotein and induced by transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β). The transcription factor Miz-1 activates the Ink4b promoter, and interacts with Myc and TGF-β-activated Smad proteins. Miz-1 is thus a point of convergence for these antagonistic signals in cell-cycle control.
