Promising roles of mammalian E2Fs in hepatocellular carcinoma.
Hefei, China. In Cell Signal, 2014
Eight members, E2F1 E2F8 have been recognized of this family so far, and the members of this family are generally divided into activator E2F (E2F1--E2F3a), repressor E2F (E2F3b--E2F5) and inhibitor E2F (E2F6--E2F8) subclasses based on their structur-e and function.
A mathematical model of bimodal epigenetic control of miR-193a in ovarian cancer stem cells.
Zhengzhou, China. In Plos One, 2013
To unravel this complexity, we propose a mathematical model to explore how estrogen-mediated up-regulation of another target of miR-193a, namely E2F6, can attenuate the function of miR-193a in two ways, one through a competition of E2F6 and c-KIT transcripts for miR-193a, and second by binding of E2F6 protein, in association with a polycomb complex, to the promoter of miR-193a to down-regulate its transcription.
Cross-species transcriptomic analysis elucidates constitutive aryl hydrocarbon receptor activity.
Toronto, Canada. In Bmc Genomics, 2013
RESULTS: We found significantly more overlap in constitutive mRNA abundances amongst tissues within the same species than from tissues between species and identified 13 genes (Agt, Car3, Creg1, Ctsc, E2f6, Enpp1, Gatm, Gstm4, Kcnj8, Me1, Pdk1, Slc35a3, and Sqrdl) that are affected by AHR-status in four of five tissues.
Transcriptional regulation and spatial interactions of head-to-head genes.
Shanghai, China. In Bmc Genomics, 2013
Factors such as HEY1, GABP, Sin3Ak-20, POL2, E2F6, and c-MYC are essential for the bidirectional transcription of intra-H2H pairs; while factors like CTCF, BDP1, GATA2, RAD21, and POL3 play important roles in coherently regulating inter-H2H pairs; iii) H2H gene blocks are enriched with hypersensitive DNase and modified histones, which participate in active transcriptions; and iv) H2H genes tend to be highly connected compared with non-H2H genes in the human co-expression network.
E2f6 and Bmi1 cooperate in axial skeletal development.
Cambridge, United States. In Dev Dyn, 2008
This analysis shows that E2f6 and Bmi1 cooperate in the regulation of Hox genes, and consequently axial skeleton development, but not in the repression of the Ink4a-Arf locus.
