A role for the eIF4E-binding protein 4E-T in P-body formation and mRNA decay
4E-transporter (4E-T) is one of several proteins that bind the mRNA 5′cap-binding protein, eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E), through a conserved binding motif. We previously showed that 4E-TExpand

Three-dimensional modeling of chromatin structure from interaction frequency data using Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling
We formulate a probabilistic model linking 5C/Hi-C data to physical distances and describe a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) approach called MCMC5C to generate a representative sample from the posterior distribution over structures from IF data. Expand

A novel shuttling protein, 4E‐T, mediates the nuclear import of the mRNA 5′ cap‐binding protein, eIF4E
The eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) plays an important role in the control of cell growth. eIF4E binds to the mRNA 5′ cap structure m7GpppN (where N is any nucleotide), andExpand

A nuclear translation-like factor eIF4AIII is recruited to the mRNA during splicing and functions in nonsense-mediated decay
In eukaryotes, a surveillance mechanism known as nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) degrades the mRNA when a premature-termination codon (PTC) is present. NMD requires translation to read the frame of theExpand

The three-dimensional architecture of Hox cluster silencing
Spatial chromatin organization is emerging as an important mechanism to regulate the expression of genes. However, very little is known about genome architecture at high-resolution in vivo. Here, weExpand

Chromatin conformation signatures of cellular differentiation
One of the major genomics challenges is to better understand how correct gene expression is orchestrated. Recent studies have shown how spatial chromatin organization is critical in the regulation ofExpand

Control of eIF4E cellular localization by eIF4E-binding proteins, 4E-BPs.
Eukaryotic initiation factor (eIF) 4E, the mRNA 5'-cap-binding protein, mediates the association of eIF4F with the mRNA 5'-cap structure to stimulate cap-dependent translation initiation in theExpand

From cells to chromatin: capturing snapshots of genome organization with 5C technology.
In eukaryotes, genome organization can be observed on many levels and at different scales. This organization is important not only to reduce chromosome length but also for the proper execution ofExpand

Classifying leukemia types with chromatin conformation data
BackgroundAlthough genetic or epigenetic alterations have been shown to affect the three-dimensional organization of genomes, the utility of chromatin conformation in the classification of humanExpand

Chromatin conformation signatures: ideal human disease biomarkers?
Human health is related to information stored in our genetic code, which is highly variable even amongst healthy individuals. Gene expression is orchestrated by numerous control elements that may beExpand
