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 acute avian leukaemia retroviruses AMV and E26 both induce myeloblastosis in vivo and transform myeloblasts in vitro. Both viruses contain the oncogene v-myb first described for AMV. Unlike AMV, E26 has the additional capacity to induce erythroblastosis in vivo and to transform erythroblasts. Previous analyses indicated that the genome of E26 also(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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
HIC1 (hypermethylated in cancer 1) is a tumor suppressor gene located at chromosome 17p13.3, a region frequently hypermethylated or deleted in human tumors and in a contiguous-gene syndrome, the Miller-Dieker syndrome. HIC1 is a transcriptional repressor containing five Krüppel-like C(2)H(2) zinc fingers and an N-terminal dimerization and autonomous(More)
The chicken c-ets-1 proto-oncogene encodes two transcription factors, p54c-ets-1 and p68c-ets-1, which contain the same DNA-binding domain but differ in their transactivating activities. We have investigated the spatial and temporal distribution of the transcripts encoding p54c-ets-1 and p68c-ets-1 throughout the development of the chick embryo. We report(More)
BTB/POZ-domain C2H2 zinc(Zn)-finger proteins are encoded by a subfamily of genes related to the Drosophila gap gene krüppel. To date, two such proteins, PLZF and LAZ-3/BCL-6, have been implicated in oncogenesis. We have now identified a new member of this gene subfamily which encodes a 62 kDa Zn-finger protein, termed LRF, with a BTB/POZ domain highly(More)
