Phosphorylation of histone H3T6 by PKCβI controls demethylation at histone H3K4
Demethylation at distinct lysine residues in histone H3 by lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) causes either gene repression or activation. As a component of co-repressor complexes, LSD1 contributesExpand

Keratins: a structural scaffold with emerging functions
Abstract. Intermediate filament proteins form an essential part of the cytoskeleton and provide topological order to cells and tissues. These features result from their intrinsic property ofExpand

Mutations in a gene encoding a novel SH3/TPR domain protein cause autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 4C neuropathy.
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4C (CMT4C) is a childhood-onset demyelinating form of hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy associated with an early-onset scoliosis and a distinct Schwann cellExpand

Clinical consequences of PKHD1 mutations in 164 patients with autosomal-recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD).
BACKGROUND ARPKD is associated with mutations in the PKHD1 gene on chromosome 6p12. Most cases manifest peri-/neonatally with a high mortality rate in the first month of life while the clinicalExpand

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is highly expressed in ER-negative breast cancers and a biomarker predicting aggressive biology.
Breast carcinogenesis is a multistep process involving both genetic and epigenetic changes. Since epigenetic changes like histone modifications are potentially reversible processes, much effort hasExpand

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 is strongly expressed in poorly differentiated neuroblastoma: implications for therapy.
Aberrant epigenetic changes in DNA methylation and histone acetylation are hallmarks of most cancers, whereas histone methylation was previously considered to be irreversible and less versatile.Expand

Complete cytolysis and neonatal lethality in keratin 5 knockout mice reveal its fundamental role in skin integrity and in epidermolysis bullosa simplex.
In human patients, a wide range of mutations in keratin (K) 5 or K14 lead to the blistering skin disorder epidermolysis bullosa simplex. Given that K14 deficiency does not lead to the ablation of aExpand

Exome Sequencing Identifies Biallelic MSH3 Germline Mutations as a Recessive Subtype of Colorectal Adenomatous Polyposis.
In ∼30% of families affected by colorectal adenomatous polyposis, no germline mutations have been identified in the previously implicated genes APC, MUTYH, POLE, POLD1, and NTHL1, although aExpand

The H3K4me3 Histone Demethylase Fbxl10 Is a Regulator of Chemokine Expression, Cellular Morphology, and the Metabolome of Fibroblasts
Background: Fbxl10 is a member of the JHDM family. Results: We show that Fbxl10 functions as an H3K4me3 demethylase. The PHD domain recognizes H3K4me3 and H3K36me2 and shows E3 ligase activity. UsingExpand
