Identifying the genomic regions bound by sequence-specific regulatory factors is central both to deciphering the complex DNA cis-regulatory code that controls transcription in metazoans and to determining the range of genes that shape animal morphogenesis. We used whole-genome tiling arrays to map sequences bound in Drosophila melanogaster embryos by the(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein phosphatase, calcineurin, is activated by specific environmental conditions, including exposure to Ca(2+) and Na(+), and induces gene expression by regulating the Crz1p/Tcn1p transcription factor. We used DNA microarrays to perform a comprehensive analysis of calcineurin/Crz1p-dependent(More)
Rearrangements of about 2.5 kilobases of regulatory DNA located 5' of the transcription start site of the Drosophila even-skipped locus generate large-scale changes in the expression of even-skipped stripes 2, 3, and 7. The most radical effects are generated by juxtaposing the minimal stripe enhancers MSE2 and MSE3 for stripes 2 and 3 with and without small(More)
The salient histopathologic features of low-grade adenocarcinoma of the fetal lung type (L-FLAC)/well-differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma (WDFA) include complex glandular structures and morules with biotin-rich optically clear nuclei. Interestingly, these characteristic features are shared by the cribriform-morular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma,(More)
Transcription of the PHO84 gene encoding a Pi transporter in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is regulated by the Pi concentration in the medium. The promoter region of PHO84 bears five copies of the motif 5′-CACGT(G/T)-3′, a candidate for the upstream activation site (UAS) that binds the transcriptional activator protein of the phosphatase regulon, Pho4p. These(More)
CD133 is one of the most representative cancer stem cell markers. This study evaluated the potential prognostic value of CD133 expression in stage I lung adenocarcinomas (ADC). Tumors from 177 patients were immunohistochemically examined for CD133 expression, and their associations with disease recurrence were analyzed. Also, the potential prognostic value(More)
The PH081 gene encoding one of the regulators of the phosphatase regulon in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was mapped 9.8 centimorgans distal from the ser2 locus on the right arm of chromosome VII. Determination of the nucleotide sequence of cloned PH081 DNA revealed a 3537 by open reading frame encoding a 134 kDa protein. This protein has six repeats of a(More)
Cis-regulatory modules (CRMs) function by binding sequence specific transcription factors, but the relationship between in vivo physical binding and the regulatory capacity of factor-bound DNA elements remains uncertain. We investigate this relationship for the well-studied Twist factor in Drosophila melanogaster embryos by analyzing genome-wide factor(More)
We present a case of a polypoid tumor located in the right middle lobe bronchus. The tumor was composed of bi-layered glandular or ductular structures consisting of inner cuboidal cells and outer multipolar cells. Immunohistochemical examinations confirmed epithelial and myoepithelial differentiation in the inner and outer components, respectively.(More)
Expression of the repressible acid phosphatase (rAPase) gene, PHO5, of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is repressed by a certain level of inorganic phosphate (Pi) in the medium and is derepressed when the Pi concentration is lowered. The Pi signals are conveyed to PHO5 by a regulatory system consisting of proteins coded for by the PHO2, PHO4, PHO80 and PHO81(More)
