SAGA/TFTC-type multiprotein complexes play important roles in the regulation of transcription. We have investigated the importance of the nuclear positioning of a gene, its transcription and the consequent export of the nascent mRNA. We show that E(y)2 is a subunit of the SAGA/TFTC-type histone acetyl transferase complex in Drosophila and that E(y)2(More)
Progressive degeneration of nigrostriatal dopaminergic (DA-ergic) neurons is a key component in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease, which develops for a long time at the preclinical stage with no motor dysfunctions due to the initiation of compensatory processes. The goal of this study was to evaluate the changes in surviving nigrostriatal DA-ergic(More)
Drosophila SAYP, a homologue of human PHF10/BAF45a, is a metazoan coactivator associated with Brahma and essential for its recruitment on the promoter. The role of SAYP in DHR3 activator-driven transcription of the ftz-f1 gene, a member of the ecdysone cascade was studied. In the repressed state of ftz-f1 in the presence of DHR3, the Pol II complex is(More)
SAGA/TFTC is a histone acetyltransferase complex that has a second enzymatic activity because of the presence of a deubiquitination module (DUBm). Drosophila DUBm consists of Sgf11, ENY2 and Nonstop proteins. We show that Sgf11 has other DUBm-independent functions. It associates with Cbp80 component of the cap-binding complex and is thereby recruited onto(More)
