We previously reported that the CA-repeat sequence in the 3'-untranslated region (3'UTR) of bcl-2 mRNA is involved in the decay of bcl-2 mRNA. However, the trans-acting factor for the CA element in bcl-2 mRNA remains unidentified. The heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein L (hnRNP L), an intron splicing factor, has been reported to bind to CA repeats and(More)
Bcl-2 interacting cell death suppressor (Bis), also known as Bag3 or CAIR-1, is involved in antistress and antiapoptotic pathways. In addition to Bcl-2, Bis binds to several proteins, suggesting it has diverse functions in normal and pathological conditions. To better define the physiological function of Bis in vivo, we developed bis-deficient mice with a(More)
It has been shown that CA repeats in the 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of bcl-2 mRNA contribute the constitutive decay of bcl-2 mRNA and that hnRNP L (heterogenous nuclear ribonucleoprotein L) interacts with CA repeats in the 3'-UTR of bcl-2 mRNA, both in vitro and in vivo. The aim of this study was to determine whether the alteration of hnRNP L affects the(More)
