The acquisition of expression of hTERT, the catalytic subunit of the telomerase enzyme, seems to be an essential step in the development of a majority of human tumors. However, little is known about the mechanisms preventing telomerase gene expression in normal and transformed cells that do not express hTERT. Using a methylation-specific PCR-based assay, we(More)
The liver X receptor alpha (LXRα), a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily, has been shown to regulate the expression of the fatty acid synthase (FAS) gene through direct interaction with the FAS promoter. However, its regulation of gene expression is not completely understood. Histone modifications and chromatin remodeling are closely linked to(More)
