Parsing Myc Paralogs in Oncogenesis.
Seattle, United States. In Cancer Cell, Feb 2016
In this issue of Cancer Cell, Vo and colleagues (2016) show that this phenotypic difference stems from the preferential ability of Myc, relative to MycN, to bind Miz1 and repress transcription.
PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER IS CHARACTERIZED BY ALTERED EXPRESSION OF GENES INVOLVED IN THE SUMOYLATION PROCESS.
Roma, Italy. In J Biol Regul Homeost Agents, Jul 2015
In particular, we evaluated the expression of the SENP1 to SENP8 (SENtrin-specific proteases), SAE1 (SUMO1 activating enzyme subunit 1), UBA2 (UBiquitin-like modifier activating enzyme 2), UBC9 (UBiquitin conjugating enzyme 9), RanBP2 (RAN binding protein 2), MSMCE2 (Non- SMC element 2), CBX4 (ChromoBoX homolog 4), PIAS1 to PIAS4 (protein inhibitor of activated STAT), ZMIZ1 (zinc finger, MIZ-type containing 1) and ZMIZ2 (Zinc finger, MIZ-type containing 2) by means of quantitative RT-PCR.
Sleeping Beauty Transposition.
In Microbiol Spectr, Apr 2015
Through its association with the Miz-1 transcription factor, the SB transposase downregulates cyclin D1 expression that results in a slowdown of the cell-cycle in the G1 phase, where NHEJ is preferentially active.
Root hydrotropism: an update.
Cuernavaca, Mexico. In Am J Bot, 2013
Current genetic analysis of hydrotropism in Arabidopsis has offered new players, mainly AHR1, NHR1, MIZ1, and MIZ2, which seem to modulate how root caps sense and choose to respond hydrotropically as opposed to other tropic responses.
