Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) constitutes a subfamily among a large group of ligand-activated transcription factors, the nuclear receptor superfamily. We studied the effects of ligand on the intracellular behaviors of PPARalpha. Although nuclear localization of PPARalpha was not affected by a selective ligand, Wy14643, we observed that(More)
The yeast two-hybrid screening was applied to cloning cDNAs of proteins that interact with peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR alpha). We obtained from a rat liver cDNA library a clone encoding a protein related to the ligand-binding domain of the members of nuclear hormone receptor superfamily, whereas apparently lacking the zinc-finger(More)
Nuclear matrix is a complex intranuclear network supposed to be involved in the various nuclear functions. In order to identify the nuclear matrix proteins, we isolated a cDNA clone from a human placenta cDNA library. This clone was partially represented a known cDNA clone HA1237. HA1237 encoded a 631-amino-acid peptide, which we designated NXP-1. NXP-1 was(More)
To identify the proteins which may modulate the functions of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR), a rat liver cDNA library was screened by a yeast two-hybrid system, using the mouse PPARalpha as a bait. A protein named nuclear receptor binding factor-1 (NRBF-1) was identified, which interacts not only with PPARalpha, but also with various(More)
A protein named nuclear receptor binding factor-2 (NRBF-2) was identified by yeast two-hybrid screening, as an interaction partner of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha as well as several other nuclear receptors. NRBF-2 exhibited a gene activation function, when tethered to a heterologous DNA binding domain, in both mammalian cells and yeast.
