Evaluating the effects of CELF1 deficiency in a mouse model of RNA toxicity.
Charlottesville, United States. In Hum Mol Genet, 15 Feb 2014
The toxic RNA transcripts produced from the mutant allele alter the function of RNA-binding proteins leading to the functional depletion of muscleblind-like (MBNL) proteins and an increase in steady state levels of CUG-BP1 (CUGBP-ETR-3 like factor 1, CELF1).
Molecular mechanisms of muscle atrophy in myotonic dystrophies.
Houston, United States. In Int J Biochem Cell Biol, Oct 2013
These expansions cause DM pathologies through accumulation of mutant RNAs that alter RNA metabolism in patients' tissues by targeting RNA-binding proteins such as CUG-binding protein 1 (CUGBP1) and Muscle blind-like protein 1 (MBNL1).
Expression of 24,426 human alternative splicing events and predicted cis regulation in 48 tissues and cell lines.
Seattle, United States. In Nat Genet, 2008
An unbiased, systematic screen of 21,760 4-mer to 7-mer words for cis-regulatory motifs identified 143 RNA 'words' enriched near regulated cassette exons, including six clusters of motifs represented by UCUCU, UGCAUG, UGCU, UGUGU, UUUU and AGGG, which map to trans-acting regulators PTB, Fox, Muscleblind, CELF/CUG-BP, TIA-1 and hnRNP F/H, respectively.
