An important physiological control of PTH gene expression is its transcriptional repression by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) [1,25-(OH)(2)D(3)]. The mechanism of this 1,25-(OH)(2)D(3)-mediated transcriptional repression is poorly understood. Previous investigations have identified a DNA sequence in the 5'-regulatory region of the human PTH (hPTH) gene that(More)
PTEN/MMAC1/TEP1 (PTEN, phosphatase deleted on chromosome ten; MMAC1, mutated in multiple advanced cancers; TEP1, tensin-like phosphatase) is a major human tumor suppressor gene whose suppressive activity operates on the phosphatidylinositol pathway. A single homologue of this gene, TEP1 (YNL128w), exists in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yeast(More)
The osteocalcin gene has been used as a model for studying the regulation of gene expression by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, as well as for examining factors which contribute to osteoblast-specific regulation of gene expression. Most of these studies have focused on transactivation. We report the identification of a sequence in the first intron of the rat(More)
A refined model for the solution structure of oxidized putidaredoxin (Pdxo), a Cys4Fe2S2 ferredoxin, has been determined. A previous structure (Pochapsky et al. (1994) Biochemistry 33, 6424-6432; PDB entry ) was calculated using the results of homonuclear two-dimensional NMR experiments. New data has made it possible to calculate a refinement of the(More)
