The Fragile X syndrome (FraX), which is characterized among other physical and neurologic impairments by mental retardation, is caused by the absence of the product of the FMR1 gene. The Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein (FMRP) is a member of a novel family of RNA-binding proteins. The latter includes two other proteins highly homologous with FMRP: the(More)
BACKGROUND Human myelogenous leukemia characterized by either the non random t(8; 21)(q22; q22) or t(16; 21)(q24; q22) chromosome translocations differ for both their biological and clinical features. Some of these features could be consequent to differential epigenetic transcriptional deregulation at AML1 targets imposed by AML1-MTG8 and AML1-MTG16, the(More)
Human MTG16a (CBFA2T3), a chromatin repressor with nucleolar localization, was described to act as a suppressor of breast tumourigenesis. Here we show that MTG16a is a novel ribosomal gene repressor, which can counteract MYC-driven activation of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) transcription. We also show that either knocking down MTG16a by RNA interference, or(More)
