The generation of knock-out mice for E2F4 gene expression has suggested a role for this transcription factor in establishing and/or maintaining the intestinal crypt compartment. Having previously demonstrated that E2F4 is cytoplasmic in quiescent-differentiated cells but nuclear in growth factor-stimulated proliferative cells, the present study was aimed at(More)
E2F transcription factors control cell cycle progression. The localization of E2F4 in intestinal epithelial cells is cell cycle dependent, being cytoplasmic in quiescent differentiated cells but nuclear in proliferative cells. However, whether nuclear translocation of E2F4 alone is sufficient to trigger intestinal epithelial cell proliferation remains to be(More)
The transcription factor E2F4 controls proliferation of normal and cancerous intestinal epithelial cells. E2F4 localization in normal human intestinal epithelial cells (HIEC) is cell cycle-dependent, being cytoplasmic in quiescent differentiated cells but nuclear in proliferative cells. However, the intracellular signaling mechanisms regulating such E2F4(More)
The transcription factor E2F4 plays a critical role in cell cycle progression of normal and cancerous intestinal epithelial cells. Contrary to other E2Fs, the coding region of the E2F4 gene contains a longer spacer segment of a CAG trinucleotide repeat sequence encoding 13 consecutive serine residues, which is highly vulnerable to frameshift mutations in(More)
