We have developed a new mammalian cell-based assay to screen for ligands of the estrogen receptor. A fluorescently tagged chimera between the glucocorticoid and the estrogen receptors, unlike the constitutively nuclear estrogen receptor, is cytoplasmic in the absence of hormone and translocates to the nucleus in response to estradiol. The chimera maintains(More)
Epigenetic processes have gained a great amount of attention in recent years, particularly due to the influence they exert on gene transcription. Several human diseases, including cancer, have been linked to aberrant epigenetic pathways. Consequently, the cellular enzymes that mediate epigenetic events, including histone deacetylases and DNA(More)
Retrotransposition of the Ty1 element of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is temperature sensitive. Transposition activity of Ty1 is abolished at temperatures above 34 degrees C. In this report, we show that the major block to transposition at high temperature is the inhibition of processing of the Gag-Pol-p199 polyprotein and the concomitant reduction of reverse(More)
The cytosolic Ah receptor (AhR) heterocomplex consists of one molecule of the AhR, a 90-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp90) dimer, and one molecule of the hepatitis B virus X-associated protein 2 (XAP2). Serine residues 43,53,131-2, and 329 on XAP2-FLAG were identified as putative phosphorylation sites using site-directed mutagenesis followed by two-dimensional(More)
Epigenetic pathways help control the expression of genes. In cancer and other diseases, aberrant silencing or overexpression of genes, such as those that control cell growth, can greatly contribute to pathogenesis. Access to these genes by the transcriptional machinery is largely mediated by chemical modifications of DNA or histones, which are controlled by(More)
We have completed a robust high-content imaging screen for novel estrogen receptor α (ERα) agonists and antagonists by quantitation of cytoplasmic to nuclear translocation of an estrogen receptor chimera in 384-well plates. The screen was very robust, with Z' values >0.7 and coefficients of variation (CV) <5%. The screen utilized a stably transfected green(More)
We have developed a robust high-content assay to screen for novel estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) agonists and antagonists by quantitation of cytoplasmic to nuclear translocation of an estrogen receptor chimera in 384-well plates. The screen utilizes a green fluorescent protein tagged-glucocorticoid/estrogen receptor (GFP-GRER) chimera which consisted of the(More)
