Spatiotemporally restricted gene targeting is needed for analyzing the functions of various molecules in a variety of biological phenomena. We have generated an inducible cerebellar Purkinje cell-specific gene targeting system. This was achieved by establishing a mutant mouse line (D2CPR) from a C57BL/6 mouse ES cell line, which expressed a fusion protein(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an aggressive and lethal blood cancer originating from rare populations of leukemia stem cells (LSCs). AML relapse after conventional chemotherapy is caused by a remaining population of drug-resistant LSCs. Selective targeting of the chemoresistant population is a promising strategy for preventing and treating AML relapse.(More)
Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) methylates histone H3 lysine 27 and represses gene expression to regulate cell proliferation and differentiation. Enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) or its close homolog EZH1 functions as a catalytic subunit of PRC2, so there are two PRC2 complexes containing either EZH2 or EZH1. Tumorigenic functions of EZH2 and its(More)
