Because the androgen and estrogen nuclear hormone receptors are subject to acetylation, we speculated that the nuclear thyroid hormone receptor-beta1 (TRbeta1), another superfamily member, was also subject to this posttranslational modification. Treatment of 293T cells that contain TRbeta1(wt) with l-thyroxine (T4)(10(-7)M, total concentration) resulted in(More)
Expansions of a (GCN)10/polyalanine tract in the Poly(A) Binding Protein Nuclear 1 (PABPN1) cause autosomal dominant oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD). In OPMD muscles, as in models, PABPN1 accumulates in intranuclear inclusions (INIs) whereas in other diseases caused by similar polyalanine expansions, the mutated proteins have been shown to(More)
