The cytosine analogue 5-azacytidine induces very distinct undercondensations in human chromosomes if applied to lymphocyte cultures. The number of induced undercondensations and their chromosomal localization can be varied by the 5-azacytidine dose and the treatment time. “Pulverized” chromosomes or undercondensations in the G-band-positive chromosome(More)
Human lymphocyte cultures were treated with different concentrations of 5-azacytidine for various lengths of time. This cytosine analog induces very distinct undercondensation in the heterochromatin of chromosomes 1, 9, 15, 16, and Y if applied in low doses during the last hours of culture. These regions are further distinguished by their intense distamycin(More)
Interferon regulatory factor-1 (IRF-1) is a master regulator of IFN-γ induced gene transcription. Previously we have shown that IRF-1 transcriptionally induces CEACAM1 via an ISRE (Interferon-Stimulated Response Element) in its promoter. CEACAM1 pre-mRNA undergoes extensive alternative splicing (AS) generating isoforms to produce either a short (S)(More)
