The herpes simplex virus type 1 latency-associated transcript (LAT) is expressed as a major species 2,100 to 2,200 bases in length and a less abundant one ca. 730 bases shorter in latently infected mouse and rabbit neurons. RNA blot hybridization experiments using 20- to 22-base synthetic oligonucleotides and mung bean nuclease protection assays have(More)
We have identified and characterized the gene for a novel zinc finger transcription factor which we have termed lung Krüppel-like factor (LKLF). LKLF was isolated through the use of the zinc finger domain of erythroid Krüppel-like factor (ELKF) as a hybridization probe and is closely related to this erythroid cell-specific gene. LKLF is expressed in a(More)
Six to eight copies of a transgene integrated into mouse chromosome 15 resulting in a new transgene insertional mutant, Footless, presenting with malformations of the limbs, kidney, and soft palate. Homozygotes possess a unique asymmetric pattern of limb truncations. Posterior structures from the autopod and zeugopod of the hindlimbs are missing with left(More)
Inhibition of HSV-1 DNA synthesis with either ~abinosyladenine plus the adenosine deaminase inhibitor pentostatin, or with arabinosylthymine, showed a viral mRNA population identical to that seen prior to viral DNA replication (early) by the criteria of quantitative hybridization, specific mRNA species identifiable by Southern blot hybridization of(More)
Much is known about the effects of high environmental temperature (HT) on egg production, but very little is understood about the mechanisms that underlie them. Two experiments were conducted to examine the effects of acute heat stress on circulating estradiol, on calcium uptake by gut tissue, on bone resorption, and on the dynamic relationship between(More)
Genetic and biochemical studies have provided convincing evidence that the 5' noncoding region (5' NCR) of hepatitis C virus (HCV) is highly conserved among viral isolates worldwide and that translation of HCV is directed by an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) located within the 5' NCR. We have investigated inhibition of HCV gene expression using(More)
The Krüppel-like factors make up a multigene family of transcription factors that have discrete patterns of expression, implying they play important biological roles in the tissues in which they are expressed. We have identified and characterized the cDNA for a novel murine transcription factor that is an additional member of the Krüppel-like family of(More)
Ectopic expression of LMO2 occurs in approximately 45% of T-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemias (T-ALL), sometimes in association with chromosomal translocations. Recently, a lymphoproliferative disorder developed in two participants in a gene therapy trial due to LMO2 activation via integration of the retroviral vector. To investigate these regulatory(More)
The transcription factor LMO2 is believed to exert its effect through the formation of protein-protein interactions with other DNA-binding factors such as GATA-1 and TAL1. Although LMO2 has been shown to be critical for the formation of the erythroid cell lineage, the gene is also expressed in a number of nonerythroid tissues. In this report, we demonstrate(More)
Erythroid Krüppel-like factor (EKLF) is a zinc finger transcription factor required for beta-globin gene expression and is implicated as one of the key factors necessary for the fetal to adult switch in globin gene expression. In an effort to identify factors involved in the expression of this important erythroid-specific regulatory protein, we have(More)
