The SGF29 protein binds to tri-methylated lysine-4 of histone H3 (H3K4me3), which is a histone modification associated with active promoters. Human SGF29 is a subunit of the histone acetyltransferase module of the SAGA (Spt-Ada-Gcn5 acetyltransferase) and ATAC (Ada-Two-A-containing 2A) co-activator complexes. Previous work revealed that the SAGA complex is(More)
The process of eukaryotic transcription initiation involves the assembly of basal transcription factor complexes on the gene promoter. The recruitment of TFIID is an early and important step in this process. Gene promoters contain distinct DNA sequence elements and are marked by the presence of post-translationally modified nucleosomes. The contributions of(More)
A novel chromatographic immunoaffinity procedure is described for the purification of Form I glucocerebrosidase (see J. M. F. G. Aerts, W. E. Donker-Koopman, M. K. Van der Vliet, L. M. V. Jonsson, E. I. Ginns, G. J. Murray, J. A. Barranger, J. M. Tager, and A. W. Schram, 1985, Eur. J. Biochem. 150, 565-574) from extracts of human tissues. The affinity(More)
The subcellular localization of glucocerebrosidase was studied in cultured skin fibroblasts from eight patients with Gaucher's disease. The enzyme, in situ, was visualized under the electron microscope by incubating ultrathin frozen sections of fibroblasts with antibodies against glucocerebrosidase, followed by a second incubation with goat anti- (rabbit(More)
In the same family, the generalized or infantile form of acid maltase deficiency (glycogenosis type II, Pompe disease) and the muscular or adult-onset form affected different individuals. Autosomal-recessive inheritance for the two clinical forms was demonstrated in this family by assay of acid alpha-glucosidase in muscle, lymphocytes, cultured fibroblasts,(More)
