WTX is a tumor suppressor protein that is lost or mutated in up to 30% of cases of Wilms tumor. Among its known functions, WTX interacts with the β-transducin repeat containing family of ubiquitin ligase adaptors and promotes the ubiquitination and degradation of the transcription factor β-catenin, a key control point in the WNT/β-catenin signaling pathway.(More)
An interface coordinating lipid metabolism with proteins that regulate membrane trafficking is necessary to regulate Golgi morphology and dynamics. Such an interface facilitates the membrane deformations required for vesicularization, forms platforms for protein recruitment and assembly on appropriate sites on a membrane surface and provides lipid(More)
The completion of the zebrafish genome sequence and advances in miniaturization and multiplexing were essential to the creation of techniques such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and high-throughput behavioral and chemical screens. Multiplexing was also instrumental in the recent enhancement of the classic yeast one-hybrid interaction techniques to provide(More)
The minor cellular lipid phosphoinositides represents key regulators of diverse intracellular processes such as signal transduction at membrane-cytosol interface, regulation of membrane trafficking, cytoskeleton organization, nuclear events and the permeability, and transport functions of the membrane. The heterogeneous subcellular localization of(More)
Microbiota influence diverse aspects of intestinal physiology and disease in part by controlling tissue-specific transcription of host genes. However, host genomic mechanisms mediating microbial control of intestinal gene expression are poorly understood. Hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 (HNF4) is the most ancient family of nuclear receptor transcription factors(More)
