Differentiation inhibitory factor (nm23 protein) inhibited the induction of differentiation of mouse myeloid leukemia M1 and WEHI-3BD+ and human erythroleukemia HEL, KU812, and K562 cells. Block of differentiation may be associated with the aggressive behavior of leukemia. To examine the role of nm23 in human myeloid leukemia, we investigated the relative(More)
OASIS is a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transmembrane transcription factor that is activated in response to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. Previously, we showed that OASIS regulates final maturation of goblet cells in the large intestine. In the present study, to elucidate the roles of OASIS under pathophysiological conditions, we examined the stress(More)
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress transducer, box B-binding factor 2 human homolog on chromosome 7 (BBF2H7), is a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transmembrane transcription factor. This molecule is activated in response to ER stress during chondrogenesis. The activated BBF2H7 accelerates cartilage matrix protein secretion through the up-regulation of(More)
The unfolded protein response (UPR) not only resolves endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, but also regulates cellular physiological functions. In this study, we first linked the UPR to the physiological roles of brown adipose tissue (BAT). BAT is one of the tissues that control energy homeostasis in the body. Brown adipocytes are able to dissipate energy in(More)
BBF2H7 is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-resident transmembrane basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor that is cleaved at the transmembrane domain by regulated intramembrane proteolysis in response to ER stress. The cleaved cytoplasmic N-terminus containing transcription activation and bZIP domains translocates into the nucleus to promote the(More)
