Paf1, RNA polymerase II associated factor, homolog

Paf1, Pd2
This gene encodes a subunit of the polymerase associated factor (PAF1) complex. The PAF1 complex interacts with RNA polymerase II and plays a role in transcription elongation as well as histone modifications including ubiquitylation and methylation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012] (from NCBI)

Popov et al., Würzburg, Germany. In Mol Cell, Feb 2016
In the absence of histone acetylation and P-TEFb recruitment, MYC associates with the PAF1 complex (PAF1C) through a conserved domain in the MYC amino terminus ("MYC box I").
Insomnia Characterisation: From Hypnograms to Graph Spectral Theory.
Cvetkovic et al., In Ieee Trans Biomed Eng, Feb 2016

Overexpression of PD2 leads to increased tumorigenicity and metastasis in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
Batra et al., Omaha, United States. In Oncotarget, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: Pancreatic differentiation 2 (PD2), an important subunit of the human PAF complex, was identified after differential screening analysis of 19q13 amplicon, and its overexpression induces oncogenic transformation of NIH3T3 cells, hence raising the possibility of a role for PD2 in tumorigenesis and metastasis.
RNA polymerase II-associated factor 1 regulates the release and phosphorylation of paused RNA polymerase II.
Roeder et al., New York City, United States. In Science, Jan 2016
We found that Pol II-associated factor 1 (PAF1) is a critical regulator of paused Pol II release, that positive transcription elongation factor b (P-TEFb) directly regulates the initial recruitment of PAF1 complex (PAF1C) to genes, and that the subsequent recruitment of CDK12 is dependent on PAF1C.

The link between vitamin D metabolism and sleep medicine.
Marino et al., Shreveport, United States. In Sleep Med Rev, 2014
These conditions are mediated by altered immunomodulation, increased propensity to infection, and increased levels of inflammatory substances, including those that regulate sleep, such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), interleukin (IL)-1, and prostaglandin D2 (PD2).
Pol II CTD kinases Bur1 and Kin28 promote Spt5 CTR-independent recruitment of Paf1 complex.
Hinnebusch et al., Bethesda, United States. In Embo J, 2012
These results identify an Spt5 phosphorylated C-terminal repeats-independent pathway of Paf1C recruitment requiring Kin28, Bur1, and the Spt5 phosphorylated C-terminal repeats-interaction domain of Cdc73.

Histone H3R17me2a mark recruits human RNA polymerase-associated factor 1 complex to activate transcription.
Xu et al., Madison, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2012
PAF1c acts as an arginine methyl histone effector that is recruited to promoters and activates a subset of genes, including targets of estrogen signaling.
Suppression of the antiviral response by an influenza histone mimic.
Tarakhovsky et al., New York City, United States. In Nature, 2012
We show that the NS1 protein of influenza A H3N2 subtype possesses a histone-like sequence (histone mimic) that is used by the virus to target the human PAF1 transcription elongation complex (hPAF1C).
Paf1 restricts Gcn4 occupancy and antisense transcription at the ARG1 promoter.
Arndt et al., Pittsburgh, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 2012
By promoting histone H2B lysine 123 ubiquitylation, Paf1 represses the ARG1 gene by negatively affecting Gcn4 occupancy at the promoter.

We show that Drosophila Hyrax and its human ortholog, Parafibromin, components of the Polymerase-Associated Factor 1 (PAF1) complex, are required for nuclear transduction of the Wnt/Wg signal and bind directly to the C-terminal region of beta-catenin/Armadillo.
[Orbital measurements in Zairian children. Inner canthal, outer orbital, inter-pupillary distances and proptosis].
Kayembe et al., Democratic Republic of the Congo. In J Fr Ophtalmol, 1993

Skinner, Houston, United States. In Neurol Clin, 1993
This may arise because the PD2 is sensitive to the net degrees of freedom of the heartbeat generator, which, under the influence of the nerves and the coronary circulation, can be shifted so the resulting dynamics cause the initiation of lethal arrhythmogenesis.
