Modifying the genomes of many organisms is becoming as easy as manipulating DNA in test tubes, which is made possible by two recently developed techniques based on either the customizable DNA binding protein, TALEN, or the CRISPR/Cas9 system. Here, we describe a series of efficient applications derived from these two technologies, in combination with(More)
Interactions among tumor cells, stromal cells, and extracellular matrix compositions are mediated through cytokines during tumor progression. Our analysis of 132 known cytokines and growth factors in published clinical breast cohorts and our 84 patient-derived xenograft models revealed that the elevated connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) in tumor(More)
More and more studies have shown chromatin remodelers and histone modifiers play essential roles in regulating developmental patterns by organizing specific chromosomal architecture to establish programmed transcriptional profiles, with implications that histone chaperones execute a coordinating role in these processes. Chromatin assembly factor-1 (CAF-1),(More)
