The loss of Ezh2 drives the pathogenesis of myelofibrosis and sensitizes tumor-initiating cells to bromodomain inhibition
Loss of Ezh2 in the presence of activating mutation in JAK2 (JAK2V617F) cooperatively alters transcriptional programs of hematopoiesis, activates specific oncogenes, and promotes the development ofExpand

Dual Inhibition of EZH2 and EZH1 Sensitizes PRC2-Dependent Tumors to Proteasome Inhibition
Purpose: EZH2 and EZH1, the catalytic components of polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2), trigger trimethylation of H3K27 (H3K27me3) to repress the transcription of target genes and are implicated inExpand

Ezh2 loss in hematopoietic stem cells predisposes mice to develop heterogeneous malignancies in an Ezh1-dependent manner.
Recent genome sequencing revealed inactivating mutations in EZH2, which encodes an enzymatic component of polycomb-repressive complex 2 (PRC2), in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS),Expand

Histone lysine methyltransferase G9a is a novel epigenetic target for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma
Histone H3 lysine 9 dimethylation (H3K9me2) is mainly regulated by the histone lysine methyltransferase G9a and is associated with the repression of transcription. However, both the role of G9a andExpand

Phosphorylation of KRAB-associated Protein 1 (KAP1) at Tyr-449, Tyr-458, and Tyr-517 by Nuclear Tyrosine Kinases Inhibits the Association of KAP1 and Heterochromatin Protein 1α (HP1α) with
Background: We showed that nuclear tyrosine phosphorylation is involved in chromatin structural changes. Results: Several tyrosine kinases phosphorylate KAP1 at Tyr-449, Tyr-458, and Tyr-517 in theExpand

Nuclear c-Abl-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation induces chromatin structural changes through histone modifications that include H4K16 hypoacetylation.
c-Abl tyrosine kinase, which is ubiquitously expressed, has three nuclear localization signals and one nuclear export signal and can shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. c-Abl playsExpand

Loss of Pcgf5 Affects Global H2A Monoubiquitination but Not the Function of Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells
Polycomb-group RING finger proteins (Pcgf1-Pcgf6) are components of Polycomb repressive complex 1 (PRC1)-related complexes that catalyze monoubiquitination of histone H2A at lysine 119 (H2AK119ub1),Expand

Activation of the Prereplication Complex Is Blocked by Mimosine through Reactive Oxygen Species-activated Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated (ATM) Protein without DNA Damage*
Background: Mimosine is a cell synchronization reagent used for arresting cells in late G1 and S phases. Results: Replication fork assembly is reversibly blocked by ATM activation throughExpand
