Pax5 (BSAP) functions as both a transcriptional activator and repressor during midbrain patterning, B-cell development and lymphomagenesis. Here we demonstrate that Pax5 exerts its repression function by recruiting members of the Groucho corepressor family. In a yeast two-hybrid screen, the groucho-related gene product Grg4 was identified as a Pax5 partner(More)
Pax-5 codes for the transcription factor BSAP, which plays an important role in midbrain patterning, B cell development, and lymphoma formation. Pax-5 is known to control gene expression by recognizing its target genes via the NH2-terminal paired domain and by regulating transcription through a COOH-terminal regulatory module consisting of activating and(More)
Despite being one of the most intensively studied cell types, the molecular basis of B cell specification is largely unknown. The Pax5 gene encoding the transcription factor BSAP is required for progression of B-lymphopoiesis beyond the pro-B cell stage. Pax5-deficient pro-B cells are, however, not yet committed to the B-lymphoid lineage, but instead have a(More)
