Hypoxia inducible factor activates the transforming growth factor-alpha/epidermal growth factor receptor growth stimulatory pathway in VHL(-/-) renal cell carcinoma cells.
Bi-allelic-inactivating mutations of the VHL tumor suppressor gene are found in the majority of clear cell renal cell carcinomas (VHL(-/-) RCC). VHL(-/-) RCC cells overproduce hypoxia-inducible genesExpand

HIF activation by pH-dependent nucleolar sequestration of VHL
Hypoxia and acidosis occur in a wide variety of physiological and pathological settings that include muscle stress, tumour development and ischaemic disorders. A central element in the adaptiveExpand

Perinuclear cohibin complexes maintain replicative life span via roles at distinct silent chromatin domains.
Heterochromatin, or silent chromatin, preferentially resides at the nuclear envelope. Telomeres and rDNA repeats are the two major perinuclear silent chromatin domains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.Expand

Regulation of ubiquitin ligase dynamics by the nucleolus
Cellular pathways relay information through dynamic protein interactions. We have assessed the kinetic properties of the murine double minute protein (MDM2) and von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) ubiquitinExpand

eEF1A is a novel component of the mammalian nuclear protein export machinery.
The cytoplasmic translation factor eEF1A has been implicated in the nuclear export of tRNA species in lower eukaryotes. Here we demonstrate that eEF1A plays a central role in nuclear export ofExpand

Silencing of epidermal growth factor receptor suppresses hypoxia-inducible factor-2-driven VHL-/- renal cancer.
Inactivating mutations in the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) tumor suppressor gene are associated with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (VHL-/- RCC), the most frequent malignancy of the human kidney. The VHLExpand

Regulation of Spo12 Phosphorylation and Its Essential Role in the FEAR Network
BACKGROUND In budding yeast, the protein phosphatase Cdc14 coordinates late mitotic events and triggers exit from mitosis. During early anaphase, Cdc14 is activated by the FEAR network, but howExpand

Perinuclear tethers license telomeric DSBs for a broad kinesin- and NPC-dependent DNA repair process.
DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) are often targeted to nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) for repair. How targeting is achieved and the DNA repair pathways involved in this process remain unclear. Here, weExpand

Roles for Pbp1 and caloric restriction in genome and lifespan maintenance via suppression of RNA-DNA hybrids.
Intergenic transcription within repetitive loci such as the ribosomal DNA (rDNA) repeats of yeast commonly triggers aberrant recombination. Major mechanisms suppressing aberrant rDNA recombinationExpand

Identification of a common subnuclear localization signal.
Proteins share peptidic sequences, such as a nuclear localization signal (NLS), which guide them to particular membrane-bound compartments. Similarities have also been observed within differentExpand
