In a genetic screen for nucleoporin-interacting components, a novel nuclear pore protein Nup84p, which exhibits homology to mammalian Nup107p, was isolated. Nup84p forms a complex with five proteins, of which Nup120p, Nup85p, Sec13p, and a Sec13p homolog were identified. Upon isolation of Sec13p-ProtA, nucleoporins were still associated, but the major(More)
Set3 is one of two proteins in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae that, like Drosophila Trithorax, contains both SET and PHD domains. We found that Set3 forms a single complex, Set3C, with Snt1, YIL112w, Sif2, Cpr1, and two putative histone deacetylases, Hos2 and NAD-dependent Hst1. Set3C includes NAD-dependent and independent deacetylase activities when(More)
Using a yeast one-hybrid screen with a DNA-bound Ets-1 protein, we have identified MafB, an AP-1 like protein, as a direct interaction partner. MafB is specifically expressed in myelomonocytic cells and binds to the DNA-binding domain of Ets-1 via its basic region or leucine-zipper domain. Furthermore, it represses Ets-1 transactivation of synthetic(More)
Intracellular mRNA localization is a common mechanism of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. In a wide range of organisms, mRNA localization coupled with translational regulation target the proteins to their site of function. Here, we describe recent exciting evidence that some mRNAs are transported as particles along the cytoskeleton by the(More)
We have studied the in vivo function and tissue specificity of Dcas, the Drosophila ortholog of CAS, the importin beta-like export receptor for importin alpha. While dcas mRNA is specifically expressed in the embryonic central nervous system, Dcas protein is maternally supplied to all embryonic cells and its nuclear/cytoplasmic distribution varies in(More)
To study nucleocytoplasmic transport during multicellular development, we developed a sensitive nuclear protein import assay in living blastoderm embryos. We show that dominant negative truncations of the human nuclear transport receptor karyopherinbeta/Importinbeta (DNImpbeta) disrupt mRNA export and protein import in Drosophila. To test the sensitivity of(More)
