UBE2T is the E2 in the Fanconi anemia pathway and undergoes negative autoregulation.
The Fanconi anemia pathway is required for the efficient repair of damaged DNA. A key step in this pathway is the monoubiquitination of the FANCD2 protein by the ubiquitin ligase (E3) composed ofExpand

The role of miRNAs in regulating gene expression networks.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are key regulators of gene expression. They are conserved across species, expressed across cell types, and active against a large proportion of the transcriptome. TheExpand

In vivo structure-function analysis of human Dicer reveals directional processing of precursor miRNAs.
Dicer is an RNase III family endoribonuclease and haploinsufficient tumor suppressor that processes mature miRNAs from the 5' (5p) or 3' (3p) arm of hairpin precursors. In murine Dicer knockoutExpand

Proliferation and tumorigenesis of a murine sarcoma cell line in the absence of DICER1.
MicroRNAs are a class of short ~22 nucleotide RNAs predicted to regulate nearly half of all protein coding genes, including many involved in basal cellular processes and organismal development.Expand

Elucidating MicroRNA Regulatory Networks Using Transcriptional, Post-transcriptional, and Histone Modification Measurements.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate diverse biological processes by repressing mRNAs, but their modest effects on direct targets, together with their participation in larger regulatory networks, make itExpand

Catecholamines Are Required for the Acquisition of Secretory Responsiveness by Sweat Glands
The sympathetic innervation of sweat glands undergoes a developmental change in transmitter phenotype from catecholaminergic to cholinergic. Acetylcholine elicits sweating and is necessary forExpand

Let-7 represses Nr6a1 and a mid-gestation developmental program in adult fibroblasts.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are critical to proliferation, differentiation, and development. Here, we characterize gene expression in murine Dicer-null adult mesenchymal stem cell lines, a fibroblast cellExpand

Dicer loss and recovery induce an oncogenic switch driven by transcriptional activation of the oncofetal Imp1-3 family.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression critical for organismal viability. Changes in miRNA activity are common in cancer, but how these changes relate to subsequentExpand
