Chromatin represents a repressive barrier to the process of ligand-dependent transcriptional activity of nuclear receptors. Here, we show that H3K27 methylation imposes ligand-dependent regulation of the oestrogen receptor α (ERα)-dependent apoptotic response via Bcl-2 in breast cancer cells. The activation of BCL2 transcription is dependent on the… (More)
IL-10 is a potent anti-inflammatory cytokine interfering with antigen presentation by inducing the intracellular sequestration of MHC class II (MHC-II) molecules. Here we studied the contribution of membrane-associated RING-CH (MARCH) ubiquitin ligase family members to the IL-10-induced down-regulation of MHC-II molecules. We found that MARCH1 and MARCH8… (More)
Proteins show drastic discrepancies in their contribution to the collection of self-peptides that shape the repertoire of CD8 T cells (MHC I self-immunopeptidome). To decipher why selected proteins are the foremost sources of MHC I-associated self-peptides, we chose to study SIMP/STT3B because this protein generates very high amounts of MHC I-associated… (More)
Rhodamines 110 and 123, and rhodamine 110 linked via peptide bonds to Arg, Cbz-Arg and Cbz-Ile-Pr-Arg interact with free base porphyrins or cytochrome C. Rhodamines 110 and 123 essentially form 1:1 complexes while the other derivatives form 2:1 complexes. The possible biological implications of these results are discussed.
