We have isolated cDNAs encoding a second member of the dilute (myosin-V) unconventional myosin family in vertebrates, myr 6 (myosin from rat 6). Expression of myr 6 transcripts in the brain is much more limited than is the expression of dilute, with highest levels observed in choroid plexus and components of the limbic system. We have mapped the myr 6 locus(More)
Bright/ARID3A is a nuclear matrix-associated transcription factor that stimulates immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) expression and Cyclin E1/E2F-dependent cell cycle progression. Bright positively activates IgH transcriptional initiation by binding to ATC-rich P sites within nuclear matrix attachment regions (MARs) flanking the IgH intronic enhancer (Eμ).(More)
We have isolated two cDNAs that encode putative myosin I heavy chains by polymerase chain reaction amplification of brain cDNA with degenerate oligodeoxynucleotide primers representing myosin I-specific conserved amino acid sequences. We report the complete deduced amino acid sequence of one of these cDNAs. The sequences is most similar to those of the(More)
We have used an interspecific backcross to map the chromosomal locations of the mouse homologs of the genes encoding myr 3 (unconventional myosin from rat), myr 4, and myr 5, members of the myosin super-family of motor proteins. The mouse loci have been named Myo1e, Myo1c, and Myo9b; they map to chromosomes 9 (MGD position 41), 11 (MGD position 46), and 8(More)
