Loss of function of the retinoblastoma protein, pRB, leads to lack of differentiation, hyperproliferation and apoptosis. Inactivation of pRB results in deregulated E2F activity, which in turn induces entry to S-phase and apoptosis. Induction of apoptosis by either the loss of pRB or the deregulation of E2F activity occurs via both p53-dependent and(More)
A paradigm in transcriptional regulation is that graded increases in transcription factor (TF) concentration are translated into on/off transcriptional responses by cooperative TF binding to adjacent sites. Digital transcriptional responses underlie the definition of anatomical boundaries during development. Here we show that NF-kappaB, a TF controlling(More)
p53 regulates the expression of genes involved in cell cycle control, apoptosis and DNA damage repair. Here we demonstrate that DUSP11 (dual specificity phosphatase 11), a member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase family that binds to RNA-RNP complexes and RNA splicing factors, is a p53 target gene. Consistent with this, the expression of DUSP11 is induced(More)
The initiation of DNA replication is a tightly controlled process that involves the formation of distinct complexes at origins of DNA replication at specific periods of the cell cycle. Pre-replicative complexes are formed during telophase and early G(1). They rearrange at the start of S phase to form pre-initiation complexes, which are a prerequisite for(More)
