The heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K protein is an RNA- and DNA-binding protein implicated in the regulation of multiple processes that comprise gene expression. We used chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assays to explore K protein interactions with serum-inducible, constitutively expressed and untranscribed gene loci in vivo. In the rat HTC-IR(More)
Here we present the Transcription Factor Encyclopedia (TFe), a new web-based compendium of mini review articles on transcription factors (TFs) that is founded on the principles of open access and collaboration. Our consortium of over 100 researchers has collectively contributed over 130 mini review articles on pertinent human, mouse and rat TFs. Notable(More)

Possession of a BRCA1/2 mutation increases risk of contralateral breast and ovarian cancer recurrence and may have an impact on health management decisions, such as imaging screening, preventive surgical interventions and systemic therapies. A hospital-based study was conducted to assess the frequency and spectrum of pathogenic germline BRCA1 and BRCA2(More)

BACKGROUND Prostate cancer (PCa) and colorectal cancer (CRC) are the most commonly diagnosed cancers and cancer-related causes of death in Poland. To date, numerous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with susceptibility to both cancer types have been identified, but their effect on disease risk may differ among populations. METHODS To(More)
The ribosomal protein S2 (RPS2) is encoded by a gene from the highly conserved mammalian repetitive gene family LLRep3. It participates in aminoacyl-transfer RNA binding to ribosome, potentially affecting the fidelity of mRNA translation. These studies were designed to measure the expression of RPS2 during increased cell proliferation. Using Western and(More)
BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) represent a heterogeneous group of tumours of mesenchymal origin characterized by gain-of-function mutations in KIT or PDGFRA of the type III receptor tyrosine kinase family. Although mutations in either receptor are thought to drive an early oncogenic event through similar pathways, two previous studies(More)
Definitive identification of promoters, their cis-regulatory motifs, and their trans-acting proteins requires experimental analysis. To define the HNRNPK promoter and its cognate DNA-protein interactions, we performed a comprehensive study combining experimental approaches, including luciferase reporter gene assays, chromatin immunoprecipitations (ChIP),(More)

Targeted PCR-based genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 can be performed at a lower cost than full gene testing; however, it may overlook mutations responsible for familial breast and/or ovarian cancers. In the present study, we report the utility of next generation sequencing (NGS) to identify new pathogenic variants of BRCA1/2. BRCA1 and BRCA2 exons were(More)
Although mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity, the molecular mechanisms underlying obesity-related metabolic abnormalities are not well established. We performed mitochondrial quantitative proteomic and whole transcriptome analysis followed by functional annotations within liver and skeletal muscles, using fasted and(More)
