The consensus sequence of p53 is repeated half sites of PuPuPuC(A/T)(A/T)GPyPyPy. GtAGCAttAGCCCAGACATGTCC is a 14-3-3sigma promoter p53 regulation site; the first core sequence is CAttAG, and the second is CATG. Both mutants GtAGgAttAGCCCAGACATGTCC and GtAGCAttAGCCCAGACATcTCC can be activated by p53 as a 1.5-fold half site. The original p53 regulated site(More)
During epidermal cell differentiation, keratin 14 (K14) expression is down-regulated, p53 expression varies, and the expression of the p53 target genes, p21 and 14-3-3σ, increases. These trends suggest that the relative transcriptional activity of p53 is increased during epidermal cell differentiation. To determine the relationship between K14 and p53, we(More)
Experiments are described supporting the proposition that the assembly of stress fibers in non-muscle cells and the assembly of myofibrils in cardiac cells share conserved mechanisms. Double staining with a battery of labeled antibodies against membrane-associated proteins, myofibrillar proteins, and stress fiber proteins reveals the following: (a)(More)
