cDNAs encoding the human and macaque homologues of rat TGN38 have been cloned and sequenced. The proteins have a highly conserved N terminus (comprising the signal peptide) and C terminus (comprising part of the lumenal domain, the membrane spanning region and cytoplasmic tail) but vary in the other part of the lumenal domain, which contains the repeat(More)
A new member of the proprotein convertase gene family (LPC) has been identified at a chromosome translocation breakpoint occurring in a high grade lymphoma. The translocation t(11;14)(q23;q32) has been molecularly cloned and shown to be the result of a fusion between an intron in the 3' -untranslated region of LPC with a sequence close to the switch region(More)
Chromosome 6 has been shown to contain at band q27 a minimal region of deletion associated with epithelial ovarian cancers and AF6, a gene disrupted in acute myeloid leukemia with t(6;11)(q27;q23). Using rapid amplification of cDNA ends by polymerase chain reaction, the breakpoint in AF6 was confirmed and a cDNA clone identified. This clone was used as a(More)
The t(8;21)(q22;q22) is a nonrandom cytogenetic abnormality associated with acute myelogenous leukemia of the M2 subtype (FAB classification). The 8q- and 21q+ derivative chromosomes have previously been isolated in somatic cell hybrids and used to map the anonymous sequences D21S65 and D21S17, which were proximal and distal, respectively, to the breakpoint(More)
The interactions of Meis, Prep, and Pbx1 TALE homeoproteins with Hox proteins are essential for development and disease. Although Meis and Prep behave similarly in vitro, their in vivo activities remain largely unexplored. We show that Prep and Meis interact with largely independent sets of genomic sites and select different DNA-binding sequences, Prep(More)
