Autoregulation of E-cadherin expression by cadherin–cadherin interactions
Transcriptional repression of E-cadherin, characteristic of epithelial to mesenchymal transition, is often found also during tumor cell invasion. At metastases, migratory fibroblasts sometimes revertExpand

Dynamic sorting of nuclear components into distinct nucleolar caps during transcriptional inhibition.
Nucleolar segregation is observed under some physiological conditions of transcriptional arrest. This process can be mimicked by transcriptional arrest after actinomycin D treatment leading to theExpand

Specification of hypothalamic neurons by dual regulation of the homeodomain protein Orthopedia
In the developing hypothalamus, a variety of neurons are generated adjacent to each other in a highly coordinated, but poorly understood process. A critical question that remains unanswered is howExpand

Identification and characterization of the ARP1 gene, a target for the human acute leukemia ALL1 gene.
ALL1, the human homologue of Drosophila trithorax, is directly involved in human acute leukemias associated with abnormalities at 11q23. Using the differential display method, we isolated a gene thatExpand

Alternative Splicing of the Pituitary Adenylate Cyclase-Activating Polypeptide Receptor PAC1: Mechanisms of Fine Tuning of Brain Activity
Alternative splicing of the precursor mRNA encoding for the neuropeptide receptor PAC1/ADCYAP1R1 generates multiple protein products that exhibit pleiotropic activities. Recent studies in mammals andExpand

Nuclear punctate distribution of ALL-1 is conferred by distinct elements at the N terminus of the protein.
The ALL-1 gene positioned at 11q23 is directly involved in human acute leukemia either through a variety of chromosome translocations or by partial tandem duplications. ALL-1 is the human homologueExpand

The C-terminal SET domains of ALL-1 and TRITHORAX interact with the INI1 and SNR1 proteins, components of the SWI/SNF complex.
The ALL-1 gene was discovered by virtue of its involvement in human acute leukemia. Its Drosophila homolog trithorax (trx) is a member of the trx-Polycomb gene family, which maintains correct spatialExpand

Convergence of signaling by interleukin-3, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and mast cell growth factor on JAK2 tyrosine kinase.
Mast cell growth factor (MGF) (also called stem cell factor) synergizes with several lymphokines, including interleukin-3 (IL-3) and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), toExpand

Interspecies molecular chimeras of kit help define the binding site of the stem cell factor.
The extracellular portion of the kit-encoded receptor for the stem cell factor (SCF) comprises five immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains. To localize the ligand recognition site, we exploited the lack ofExpand

Steel factor and c-kit protooncogene: genetic lessons in signal transduction.
Despite extensive research on the molecular mechanisms of signal transduction by growth factors and their oncogenic receptor tyrosine kinases, the physiological relevance of these pathways,Expand
