TIP60 (HTATIP) is a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) whose function is critical in regulating ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) activation, gene expression, and chromatin acetylation in DNA repair. Here we show that under non-stressed conditions, activating transcription factor-2 (ATF2) in cooperation with Cul3 ubiquitin ligase promotes degradation of(More)
V(D)J recombination is a tightly controlled process of somatic recombination whose regulation is mediated in part by chromatin structure. Here, we report that RAG2 binds directly to the core histone proteins. The interaction with histones is observed in developing lymphocytes and within the RAG1/RAG2 recombinase complex in a manner that is dependent on the(More)
Beta-catenin has been implicated in thymocyte development because of its function as a coactivator of Tcf/LEF-family transcription factors. Previously, we discovered a novel pathway for p53-induced beta-catenin degradation through a ubiquitin E3 ligase complex involving Siah1, SIP (CacyBP), Skp1, and Ebi. To gain insights into the physiological relevance of(More)
T7 phage DNA polymerase is a tight 1:1 complex of the gene 5 protein (g5p) (80 kDa) of phage T7 and thioredoxin (12 kDa) from the Escherichia coli host. The holoenzyme is essential for the replication of the phage. We estimated the real-time kinetics and thermodynamics of the interaction of g5p with thioredoxin (wild type and mutants) using surface plasmon(More)
We have previously described a soluble 6000-Da peptide produced by an HIV-1-infected human macrophage cell line, clone 43(HIV), which induces apoptosis in T and B cells. We have identified this factor as the novel cDNA clone FL14676485 that encodes for the human hypothetical protein, FLJ21908. The FL14676485 cDNA clone was isolated from a 43(HIV) lambda ZAP(More)
The 12/23 rule is a critical step for regulation of V(D)J recombination. To date, only the RAG proteins and high mobility group protein 1 or 2 have been implicated in 12/23 regulation. Through protein fractionation and biochemical experiments, we find that Ku70/Ku80 and DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs) modulate RAG-mediated(More)
