Scientific Background :PRMT5 (Protein Arginine Methyltransferase 5) and its coactivator MEP50 (Methylosome Protein 50) form a complex that plays a crucial role in the methylation of arginine residues in proteins, a process known as arginine methylation. This complex has been implicated in the regulation of various cellular functions, including gene expression, RNA processing, and signal transduction. Aberrant expression and dysregulation of PRMT5 and MEP50 have been observed in various cancers, highlighting their potential roles in tumorigenesis.
