Signaling through the T cell antigen receptor (TCR) results both in rapid increases in tyrosine phosphorylation on a number of proteins and in the activation of the phosphatidylinositol pathway. It is not clear how stimulation of the TCR leads to these signaling events. Mutants of the Jurkat T cell line have been previously isolated that fail to show(More)
The Polycomb group (PcG) genes are required to maintain homeotic genes in a silenced state during development in drosophila and mammals and are thought to form several distinct silencing complexes that maintain homeotic gene repression during development. Mutations in the PcG genes result in developmental defects and have been implicated in human cancer.(More)
An in vitro system for studying DNA demethylation has been established using extracts from tissue culture cells. This reaction, which is unusually resistant to proteinase K, takes place through the removal of a 5-methylcytosine nucleotide unit from the DNA substrate and its conversion to an RNase-sensitive form. It is likely that this represents the in vivo(More)
