The LAZ3/BCL6 (lymphoma-associated zinc finger 3/B cell lymphomas 6) gene frequently is altered in non-Hodgkin lymphomas. It encodes a sequence-specific DNA binding transcriptional repressor that contains a conserved N-terminal domain, termed BTB/POZ (bric-à-brac tramtrack broad complex/pox viruses and zinc fingers). Using a yeast two-hybrid screen, we show(More)
The BTB/POZ domain defines a newly characterized protein-protein interaction interface. It is highly conserved throughout metazoan evolution and generally found at the NH2 terminus of either actin-binding or, more commonly, nuclear DNA-binding proteins. By mediating protein binding in large aggregates, the BTB/POZ domain serves to organize higher order(More)
The LAZ3/BCL6 gene was identified by its disruption in 3q27 translocations associated with diffuse large cell lymphomas. It is predicted to be a transcription factor as it contains six Krüppel-like Zinc finger motifs and a N-terminal BTB/POZ domain, a protein/protein interaction interface that is widely conserved in Metazoans. Using two antisera raised(More)
Hypermethylated in cancer (HIC-1), a new candidate tumor suppressor gene located in 17p13.3, encodes a protein with five C(2)H(2) zinc fingers and an N-terminal broad complex, tramtrack, and bric à brac/poxviruses and zinc-finger (BTB/POZ) domain found in actin binding proteins or transcriptional regulators involved in chromatin modeling. In the human B(More)
Ets proteins have a conserved DNA-binding domain and regulate transcriptional initiation from a variety of cellular and viral gene promoter and enhancer elements. Some members of the Ets family, Ets-1 and Ets-2, cooperate in transcription with the AP-1 transcription factor, the product of the proto-oncogene families, fos and jun, while others, Elk-1 and(More)
Here we present the Transcription Factor Encyclopedia (TFe), a new web-based compendium of mini review articles on transcription factors (TFs) that is founded on the principles of open access and collaboration. Our consortium of over 100 researchers has collectively contributed over 130 mini review articles on pertinent human, mouse and rat TFs. Notable(More)
Tumor suppressor HIC1 (hypermethylated in cancer 1) is a gene that is essential for mammalian development, epigenetically silenced in many human tumors, and involved in a complex pathway regulating P53 tumor suppression activity. HIC1 encodes a sequence-specific transcriptional repressor containing five Krüppel-like C(2)H(2) zinc fingers and an N-terminal(More)
HIC1 (Hypermethylated in Cancer 1), as it name implied, was originally isolated as a new candidate tumor suppressor gene located at 17p13.3 because it resides in a CpG island that is hypermethylated in many types of human cancers. HIC1 encodes a transcription factor associating an N-terminal BTB/POZ domain to five C-terminal Krüppel-like C(2)H(2) zinc(More)
Cell transformation by oncogenes leads to changes in gene expression. A key event in this process seems to be activation of the transcription factors AP-1 and PEA 3. Their synergistic activities are required for efficient activation of transcription from different promoters by many different oncogenes, serum growth factors and the tumour promoter TPA. We(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy and safety of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) in patients with chronic rhinitis related to sensitization to house dust mites are still controversial. METHODS After application of an anti-mite mattress cover, patients were only included in the study when the cumulative symptom score over a fortnight was greater than 70 out of a(More)
