Bacteriophage lambda has for many years been a model system for understanding mechanisms of gene regulation. A 'genetic switch' enables the phage to transition from lysogenic growth to lytic development when triggered by specific environmental conditions. The key component of the switch is the cI repressor, which binds to two sets of three operator sites on(More)
In the present study, we found that the expression patterns of the vegetative profilins and actin depolymerizing factors (ADFs) were specifically altered under low temperature (17 °C) stress using a real-time PCR. Our results show that also reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton was triggered by a low temperature. Facilitation of microfilament (MF)(More)
KLF5 is a basic transcriptional factor that regulates multiple physiopathological processes. Our recent study showed that deletion of Klf5 in mouse prostate promotes tumorigenesis initiated by the deletion of Pten. While molecular characterization of Klf5-null tumors suggested that angiogenesis was partially responsible for tumor promotion, the precise(More)
