A novel basic heparin-binding monocyte chemotactic factor (MCF) was purified to homogeneity from the conditioned media of human myelomonocytic cell line THP-1 based on its in vitro monocyte chemotactic activity. The purified MCF was homogenous and estimated to be 15 kD on SDS-PAGE. Purified MCF stimulated normal human monocytes to be growth inhibitory in(More)
A key issue when designing and using DNA-targeting nucleases is specificity. Ideally, an optimal DNA-targeting tool has only one recognition site within a genomic sequence. In practice, however, almost all designer nucleases available today can accommodate one to several mutations within their target site. The ability to predict the specificity of targeting(More)
Primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma (PMBL) is a separate entity of aggressive B-cell lymphoma, characterized by a constitutive activation of janus kinase-signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK-STAT) signaling pathway, also observed in Hodgkin lymphoma. Although many cancers exhibit constitutive JAK-STAT pathway activation, mutations of STAT(More)
The last few years have seen the increasing development of new DNA targeting molecular tools and strategies for precise genome editing. However, opportunities subsist to either improve or expand the current toolbox and further broaden the scope of possible biotechnological applications. Here we report the discovery and the characterization of BurrH, a new(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the genome of HTLV-III, the infectious agent etiologically associated with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome, predicts a small open reading frame, termed sor, located between the pol and env genes. A DNA segment containing 82 percent of the sor region was inserted into a prokaryotic expression vector, pJL6, to determine(More)
A key feature when designing DNA targeting tools and especially nucleases is specificity. The ability to control and tune this important parameter represents an invaluable advance to the development of such molecular scissors. Here, we identified and characterized new non-conventional RVDs (ncRVDs) that possess novel intrinsic targeting specificity(More)
The past decade has seen the emergence of several molecular tools that render possible modification of cellular functions through accurate and easy addition, removal, or exchange of genomic DNA sequences. Among these technologies, transcription activator-like effectors (TALE) has turned out to be one of the most versatile and incredibly robust platform for(More)
