E2F transcription factors are known to be important for timely activation of G(1)/S and G(2)/M genes required for cell cycle progression, but transcriptional mechanisms for deactivation of cell cycle-regulated genes are unknown. Here, we show that E2F7 is highly expressed during mid to late S-phase, occupies promoters of G(1)/S-regulated genes and represses(More)
Recently, we showed that E2F7 and E2F8 (E2F7/8) are critical regulators of angiogenesis through transcriptional control of VEGFA in cooperation with HIF. (1) Here we investigate the existence of other novel putative angiogenic E2F7/8-HIF targets, and discuss the role of the RB-E2F pathway in regulating angiogenesis during embryonic and tumor development.
BACKGROUND The antihypertensive and renoprotective effects of ACE inhibitor (ACEi) therapy are enhanced by inducing a negative sodium balance. Whether this strategy also improves outcome of chronic ACEi treatment after myocardial infarction (MI) is unknown. Therefore, we investigated whether hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) or dietary sodium restriction further(More)
