The core binding factor (CBF) heterodimeric transcription factors comprised of AML/CBFA/PEBP2alpha/Runx and CBFbeta/PEBP2beta subunits are essential for differentiation of hematopoietic and bone cells, and their mutation is intimately related to the development of acute leukemias and cleidocranial dysplasia. Here, we present the crystal structures of the(More)
c-Myb, but not avian myeloblastosis virus (AMV) v-Myb, cooperates with C/EBP beta to regulate transcription of myeloid-specific genes. To assess the structural basis for that difference, we determined the crystal structures of complexes comprised of the c-Myb or AMV v-Myb DNA-binding domain (DBD), the C/EBP beta DBD, and a promoter DNA fragment. Within the(More)
1 Kanagawa Academy of Science and tion assays, and atomic force microscopy confirmed that the interaction of c-Myb and C/EBP␤ observed in Technology (KAST) 3-9 Fukuura crystal mimics their long range interaction on the promoter , which is accompanied by intervening DNA Kanazawa-ku Yokohama 236-0004 looping.

Src homology 2 (SH2) domains play a critical role in cellular signal transduction. They bind to peptides containing phosphotyrosine (pY) with various specificities that depend on the flanking amino-acid residues. The SH2 domain of growth-factor receptor-bound protein 2 (Grb2) specifically recognizes pY-X-N-X, whereas the SH2 domains in phosphatidylinositol(More)
