DNA methylation is essential for development in the mouse and plays an important role in inactivation of the X chromosome and genomic imprinting. MeCP2 is the founder member of a family of methyl-CpG-binding proteins. MeCP2 directly binds to the co-repressor mSin3, which interacts with class I histone deacetylase, recruiting them to methyl-CpG regions to(More)
The centrality dependence of the charged-particle multiplicity density at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt[s_{NN}]=2.76  TeV is presented. The charged-particle density normalized per participating nucleon pair increases by about a factor of 2 from peripheral (70%-80%) to central (0%-5%) collisions. The centrality dependence is found to be similar to(More)
The N-CoR/SMRT complex containing mSin3 and histone deacetylase (HDAC) mediates transcriptional repression by nuclear hormone receptors and Mad. The proteins encoded by the ski proto-oncogene family directly bind to N-CoR/SMRT and mSin3A, and forms a complex with HDAC. c-Ski and its related gene product Sno are required for transcriptional repression by Mad(More)
The first measurement of the charged-particle multiplicity density at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair √ S NN = 2.76 TeV is presented. For an event sample corresponding to the most central 5% of the hadronic cross section, the pseudorapidity density of primary charged particles at midrapidity is 1584 ± 4(stat) ±(More)
A role of indices of oxidative stress, oxidative injury, and abnormal membrane phospholipid, specifically the phospholipid essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPUFAs) metabolism has been suggested based on studies in separate groups of patients with or without medication. The current study investigated the relationship between these biochemical measures(More)
(-)Epicatechin, an active principle in the water extract of the bark of Pterocarpus marsupium increases the cAMP content of the islets which is associated with the increased insulin release, conversion of proinsulin to insulin and cathepsin B activity. The response of the islets to the (-)epicatechin stimulation is more pronounced in immature (one month(More)
Oxidative stress and inflammation play an integral role in the pathogenesis of cerebral ischemia that leads to a cascade of events culminating in the death of neurons and their supporting structures. The signaling pathways that link these events are not fully understood. Recent studies have demonstrated a close link between the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB)(More)
The objective of the present study was to assess the neuroprotective role of rutin (vitamin P) and delineate the mechanism of action. Recent evidence indicates that rutin exhibits antioxidant potential and protects the brain against various oxidative stressors. More precisely, the aim of the present study was to examine the modulating impacts of rutin(More)
Fusion of the promyelocytic leukemia (PML) protein to the retinoic acid receptor-alpha (RARalpha) generates the transforming protein of acute promyelocytic leukemias. PML appears to be involved in multiple functions, including apoptosis and transcriptional activation by RAR, whereas PML-RARalpha blocks these functions of PML. However, the mechanisms of(More)
The mechanism by which the viral oncogene ski (v-ski) transforms chicken embryo fibroblasts is currently unknown. Recently, the c-ski gene product (c-Ski) was found to bind to N-CoR (nuclear hormone receptor co-repressor), an element implicated in transcriptional repression mediated by multiple transcriptional repressors including the nuclear hormone(More)
