An extensive repertoire of modifications is known to underlie the versatile coding, structural and catalytic functions of RNA, but it remains largely uncharted territory. Although biochemical studies indicate that N(6)-methyladenosine (m(6)A) is the most prevalent internal modification in messenger RNA, an in-depth study of its distribution and functions(More)
Kekkon proteins negatively regulate the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) during oogenesis in Drosophila. Their structural relative in mammals, LRIG1, is a transmembrane protein whose inactivation in rodents promotes skin hyperplasia, suggesting involvement in EGFR regulation. We report upregulation of LRIG1 transcript and protein upon EGF(More)
Signaling pathways invoke interplays between forward signaling and feedback to drive robust cellular response. In this study, we address the dynamics of growth factor signaling through profiling of protein phosphorylation and gene expression, demonstrating the presence of a kinetically defined cluster of delayed early genes that function to attenuate the(More)
Naïve and primed pluripotent states retain distinct molecular properties, yet limited knowledge exists on how their state transitions are regulated. Here, we identify Mettl3, an N(6)-methyladenosine (m(6)A) transferase, as a regulator for terminating murine naïve pluripotency. Mettl3 knockout preimplantation epiblasts and naïve embryonic stem cells are(More)
LAP2beta is an integral membrane protein of the nuclear envelope involved in chromatin and nuclear architecture. Using the yeast two-hybrid system, we have cloned a novel LAP2beta-binding protein, mGCL, which contains a BTB/POZ domain and is the mouse homologue of the Drosophila germ-cell-less (GCL) protein. In Drosophila embryos, GCL was shown to be(More)
BACKGROUND Neural stem cells are currently being investigated as potential therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, and trauma. However, concerns have been raised over the safety of this experimental therapeutic approach, including, for example, whether there is the potential for tumors to develop from transplanted stem cells. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Storing ovarian tissue for fertility preservation in cancer patients carries the risk of the presence of malignant cells that could lead to recurrence of cancer after reimplantation. Methods to exclude presence of cancer cells were used to improve the safety of cryopreservation-reimplantation procedures. METHODS Fifty-eight patients with(More)
We examined the microRNA profiles of Glioblastoma stem (CD133+) and non-stem (CD133-) cell populations and found up-regulation of several miRs in the CD133- cells, including miR-451, miR-486, and miR-425, some of which may be involved in regulation of brain differentiation. Transfection of GBM cells with the above miRs inhibited neurosphere formation and(More)
Cell migration driven by the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) propels morphogenesis and involves reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Although de novo transcription precedes migration, transcript identity remains largely unknown. Through their actin-binding domains, tensins link the cytoskeleton to integrin-based adhesion sites. Here we report(More)
Nuclear-envelope proteins have been implicated in diverse and fundamental cell functions, among them transcriptional regulation. Gene expression at the territory of the nuclear periphery is known to be repressed by epigenetic modifications such as histone deacetylation and methylation. However, the mechanism by which nuclear-envelope proteins are involved(More)
