Transferring Drosophila tissue culture cells from 25 to 37 degrees C (heat shock) causes histone protein synthesis to become noncoordinate. To determine the level at which this is controlled, the synthesis, degradation, and translation of individual histone mRNAs was studied under both heat shock and control conditions. The increased synthesis of histone(More)
Antibodies against human c-myc protein have been reported to inhibit DNA polymerase activity and endogenous DNA synthesis in isolated nuclei, suggesting a role for c-myc in DNA replication. Using the same antibody preparations, we observed equivalent inhibition of simian virus 40 DNA replication and DNA polymerase alpha and delta activities in vitro, as(More)
A cDNA fragment coding for human c-myc was inserted into the genome of the baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus adjacent to the strong polyhedrin promoter. Insect cells infected with the recombinant virus produced significant amounts of c-myc protein, which constituted the major phosphoprotein component in these cells. By(More)
