Loss of fidelity of the splicing process occurs during tumor progression and can have a deleterious effect on genes like tumor suppressor genes. It was reported recently that the presence of aberrant transcripts of the TSG101 gene in breast cancer cells was associated with the mutation of the p53 tumor suppressor gene. On the basis of this observation, we(More)
The human BTG2 gene is one of five members of a newly identified family of antiproliferative genes. BTG2 was first described as an immediate early gene whose expression is induced in response to mitogenic as well as differentiative and antiproliferative factors. More recently, we have shown that BTG2 expression is also induced in response to genotoxic(More)
The p53-transcriptional target, BTG2TIS21/PC3, was previously identified as an antiproliferative gene. However, the precise biological functions of the protein product remain to be elucidated. BTG2TIS21/PC3 expression is induced in vivo during neurogenesis, and the gene is transiently expressed in vitro in rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cells after induction of(More)
Exposure of mammalian cells to genotoxic agents evokes a complex cellular response. An ordered series of molecular events is necessary to sense DNA damage, transduce the signal, and ultimately delay the cell cycle or trigger apoptosis. Recently, we have shown that BTG2/TIS21 gene expression was induced in response to DNA damage through a p53-dependent(More)

BTG2/TIS21/PC3 protein is involved in the regulation of G1/S transition of the cell cycle by inhibiting pRb function, suggesting that BTG2/TIS21/PC3 regulation is critical for normal cell growth and proliferation. To understand the regulatory mechanisms for the expression of BTG2/TIS21/PC3 we cloned the human gene. Potential binding sites for several(More)
The p53 tumor suppressor protein functions to monitor the integrity of the genome. If a damage is detected, p53 binds tightly to specific sequence elements in the DNA and induces the transactivation of genes involved in various growth regulatory processes such as cell cycle progression, DNA repair and apoptosis. A p53-binding site was recently identified in(More)
