The construction of cDNA library and the screening of related antigen of ascitic tumor cells of ovarian cancer.
In Eur J Gynaecol Oncol, 2014
They were then divided into six categories: (1) the homologous genes which related to the known ovarian cancer genes, such as BARD 1 gene, etc; (2) the homologous genes which were associated with other tumors, such as TM4SFI gene, etc; (3) the genes which were expressed in a special organization, such as ILF3, FXR1 gene, etc; (4) the genes which were the same with some protein genes of special function, such as TIZ, ClD gene; (5) the homologous genes which possessed the same source with embryonic genes, such as PKHD1 gene, etc; (6) the remaining genes were the unknown genes without the homologous sequence in the gene pool, such as OV-189 genes.
FMRP targets distinct mRNA sequence elements to regulate protein expression.
New York City, United States. In Nature, 2013
Here we report the discovery of distinct RNA-recognition elements that correspond to the two independent RNA-binding domains of FMRP, in addition to the binding sites within the messenger RNA targets for wild-type and I304N mutant FMRP isoforms and the FMRP paralogues FXR1P and FXR2P (also known as FXR1 and FXR2).
miRNPs: versatile regulators of gene expression in vertebrate cells.
New Haven, United States. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2009
Under these conditions, called quiescence, the miRNP (microribonucleoprotein)-associated proteins FXR1 (Fragile X mental retardation-related protein 1) and AGO2 (Argonaute 2), which are usually considered negative regulators, are transformed into effector molecules that bind the ARE to activate translation.
Switching from repression to activation: microRNAs can up-regulate translation.
New Haven, United States. In Science, 2008
Upon cell cycle arrest, the ARE in tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha) mRNA is transformed into a translation activation signal, recruiting Argonaute (AGO) and fragile X mental retardation-related protein 1 (FXR1), factors associated with micro-ribonucleoproteins (microRNPs).
Argonautes and company: sailing against the wind.
Basel, Switzerland. In Cell, 2007
In this issue, Vasudevan and Steitz (2007) report a new function for AGO2 and FXR1--two proteins that have been linked to the regulation of microRNAs and translation repression.
