Premature ovarian failure in a subgroup of women with blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus type 1 syndrome has been associated with nonsense mutations in the gene encoding a Forkhead transcription factor, Forkhead L2 (FOXL2). However, the exact function of FOXL2 in the ovary is unclear. We investigated the expression of FOXL2 in the mouse ovary(More)
Mutations in FOXL2 are responsible for blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) type I, in which affected women exhibit premature ovarian failure. FOXL2-null mice showed defects in granulosa cell development during folliculogenesis. We screened a rat ovarian yeast two-hybrid cDNA library to identify FOXL2-interacting proteins and found(More)
Human thyrotropin (TSH), luteotropin (LH), follitropin (FSH), and chorionic gonadotropin are members of the heterodimeric glycoprotein hormone family. The common alpha subunit forms noncovalent heterodimers with different beta subunits. Two novel human glycoprotein hormonelike genes, alpha2 (A2) and beta5 (B5), recently have been identified. Using a yeast(More)
Myeloid cell leukemia-1 (MCL-1L) is a pro-survival member of the BCL-2 family that promotes cell survival. In this study, we identify a new splicing variant of human MCL-1 that encodes MCL-1ES (extra short). Sequence analysis indicates that this variant results from splicing within the first coding exon of MCL-1 at a non-canonical GC-AG donor-acceptor pair.(More)
INTRODUCTION Endothelium-derived nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized from l-arginine by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) encoded by the eNOS3 gene on chromosome 7. The effects of the eNOS polymorphisms with the risk of coronary artery disease are conflicting. In this study, we investigated the association of the eNOS genotypes with coronary artery(More)
Mcl-1L (myeloid cell leukemia-1 long) is an antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family protein discovered as an early induction gene during leukemia cell differentiation. Previously, we identified Mcl-1S (short) as a short splicing variant of the Mcl-1 gene with proapoptotic activity. To identify Mcl-1-interacting proteins, we performed yeast two-hybrid screening and found(More)
Blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome type I is an autosomal disorder caused by mutations in FOXL2 gene and associated with premature ovarian failure in women by a dominant inheritance. FOXL2 is a recently identified protein that belongs to forkhead family transcription factor, of which signaling pathways are still unknown. Here, we show that(More)
p73beta is a structural and functional homologue of p53, a tumor suppressor gene. In this study, we identified a novel p73beta-binding protein, p19ras, by the yeast two-hybrid screening method. Alternative splicing of the proto-oncogene H-ras pre-mRNA has led to two distinct transcripts, p19ras and p21ras. In both endogenous and overexpressed systems, we(More)
Previously, we have shown that Bcl2l10 is highly expressed in metaphase II (MII)-stage oocytes. The objective of this study was to characterize Bcl2l10 expression in ovaries and to examine the function of Bcl2l10 in oocyte maturation using RNA interference. Bcl2l10 transcript expression was ovary and oocyte specific. Bcl2l10 was highly expressed in oocytes(More)
Approximately 97% of patients with ovarian granulosa cell tumours (GCTs) bear the C134W mutation in FOXL2; however, the pathophysiological mechanism of this mutation is unknown. Here we report how this mutation affects GCT development. Sequential posttranslational modifications of the C134W mutant occur where hyperphosphorylation at serine 33 (S33) by GSK3β(More)
