Recent evidence has revealed that senescence induction requires fine-tuned activation of p53, however, mechanisms underlying the regulation of p53 activity during senescence have not as yet been clearly established. We demonstrate here that SCF(Fbxo22)-KDM4A is a senescence-associated E3 ligase targeting methylated p53 for degradation. We find that Fbxo22(More)
Selective activation of p53 target genes in response to various cellular stresses is a critical step in determining the ability to induce cell-cycle arrest or apoptosis. Here we report the identification of the microRNA miR-22 as a p53 target gene that selectively determines the induction of p53-dependent apoptosis by repressing p21. Combinatorial analyses(More)
In a previous investigation, a 35 kDa iron-regulated protein was identified from total cellular proteins of Pasteurella haemolytica grown under iron-depleted conditions. This study reports identification of the gene (fbpA) encoding the 35 kDa protein based on complementation of an entA Escherichia coli strain transformed with a plasmid derived from a P.(More)
The transcription factors HSF1 and p53 both modulate the stress response, thereby protecting and facilitating the recovery of stressed cells, but both have the potential to promote tumor development. Here we show that a p53 target gene, IER5, encodes an activator of HSF1. IER5 forms a ternary complex with HSF1 and the phosphatase PP2A, and promotes the(More)
The tumor suppressor p53 functions by inducing the transcription of a collection of target genes. We previously attempted to identify p53 target genes by microarray expression and ChIP-sequencing analyses. In this study, we describe a novel p53 target gene, FUCA1, which encodes a fucosidase. Although fucosidase, α-l-1 (FUCA1) has been reported to be a(More)
