We identify the helicase-SANT-associated (HSA) domain as the primary binding platform for nuclear actin-related proteins (ARPs) and actin. Individual HSA domains from chromatin remodelers (RSC, yeast SWI-SNF, human SWI-SNF, SWR1 and INO80) or modifiers (NuA4) reconstitute their respective ARP-ARP or ARP-actin modules. In RSC, the HSA domain resides on the(More)
NF-kappa B regulates normal and pathological processes, including neoplasia, in a tissue-context-dependent manner. In skin, NF-kappa B is implicated in epidermal homeostasis as well as in the pathogenesis of squamous cell carcinoma; however, its function in the underlying mesenchymal dermis has been unclear. To gain insight into NF-kappa B roles in these(More)
Nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) gene-regulatory proteins play important roles in inflammation, neoplasia, and programmed cell death. Recently, blockade of NF-kappaB function has been shown to result in epithelial hyperplasia, suggesting a potential role for NF-kappaB in negative growth regulation. We expressed active NF-kappaB subunits in normal(More)
Specialized forms of physiologic cell death lacking certain characteristic morphologic features of apoptosis occur in terminally differentiating tissues, such as in the outer cell layers of epidermis. In these cell layers, NF-kappaB translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus and induces target gene expression. In light of its potent role in regulating(More)
The packaging of DNA into nucleosomal structures limits access for templated processes such as transcription and DNA repair. The repositioning or ejection of nucleosomes is therefore critically important for regulated events, including gene expression. This activity is provided by chromatin remodeling complexes, or remodelers, which are typically large,(More)
Early in infection of Bacillus subtilis by bacteriophage SPO1, the synthesis of most host-specific macromolecules is replaced by the corresponding phage-specific biosyntheses. It is believed that this subversion of the host biosynthetic machinery is accomplished primarily by a cluster of early genes in the SPO1 terminal redundancy. Here we analyze the(More)
Specialized forms of programmed cell death occur in terminally differentiating tissues with a capacity for continuous self-renewal, including the outer layers of stratified epithelium (1, 2). Tissue homeostasis in this setting is dependent on a balance between proliferation and programmed cell death. Apoptosis in many settings involves distinctive(More)
