The p16INK4A and p14ARF proteins, encoded by the INK4A-ARF locus, are key regulators of cellular senescence, yet the mechanisms triggering their up-regulation are not well understood. Here, we show that the ability of the oncogene BMI1 to repress the INK4A-ARF locus requires its direct association and is dependent on the continued presence of the(More)
X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) is an inherited disorder that mostly affects males and is caused by mutations in genes located on the X chromosome. Here, we show that the XLMR protein PHF8 and a C. elegans homolog F29B9.2 catalyze demethylation of di- and monomethylated lysine 9 of histone H3 (H3K9me2/me1). The PHD domain of PHF8 binds to H3K4me3 and(More)
The three-dimensional structure of the Manduca sexta midgut V(1) ATPase has been determined at 3.2 nm resolution from electron micrographs of negatively stained specimens. The V(1) complex has a barrel-like structure 11 nm in height and 13.5 nm in diameter. It is hexagonal in the top view, whereas in the side view, the six large subunits A and B are(More)
The Myc-associated zinc-finger protein, Miz1, is a negative regulator of cell proliferation and induces expression of the cell-cycle inhibitors p15(Ink4b) and p21(Cip1). Here we identify the ribosomal protein L23 as a negative regulator of Miz1-dependent transactivation. L23 exerts this function by retaining nucleophosmin, an essential co-activator of Miz1(More)
The transcription factor Miz1 is required for DNA-damage-induced cell-cycle arrest. We have now identified 14-3-3eta as a gene that inhibits Miz1 function through interaction with its DNA binding domain. Binding of 14-3-3eta to Miz1 depends on phosphorylation by Akt and regulates the recovery of cells from arrest after DNA damage. Miz1 has two functions in(More)
