A p53-mediated DNA damage response limits reprogramming to ensure iPS cell genomic integrity
The reprogramming of differentiated cells to pluripotent cells (induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells) is known to be an inefficient process. We recently reported that cells with short telomeresExpand

Sfp1 is a stress- and nutrient-sensitive regulator of ribosomal protein gene expression.
Yeast cells modulate their protein synthesis capacity in response to physiological needs through the transcriptional control of ribosomal protein (RP) genes. Here we demonstrate that theExpand

Telomeres acquire embryonic stem cell characteristics in induced pluripotent stem cells.
Telomere shortening is associated with organismal aging. iPS cells have been recently derived from old patients; however, it is not known whether telomere chromatin acquires the same characteristicsExpand

Tissue damage and senescence provide critical signals for cellular reprogramming in vivo
For cell reprogramming, context matters Differentiated cells in a culture dish can assume a new identity when manipulated to express four transcription factors. This “reprogramming” process hasExpand

A Human Sequence Homologue of Staufen Is an RNA-Binding Protein That Is Associated with Polysomes and Localizes to the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
ABSTRACT In the course of a two-hybrid screen with the NS1 protein of influenza virus, a human clone capable of coding for a protein with high homology to the Staufen protein from DrosophilaExpand

The Mammalian Staufen Protein Localizes to the Somatodendritic Domain of Cultured Hippocampal Neurons: Implications for Its Involvement in mRNA Transport
In hippocampal neurons, certain mRNAs have been found in dendrites (Steward, 1997), and their localization and translation have been implicated in synaptic plasticity (Martin et al., 1997). OneExpand

The composition of Staufen-containing RNA granules from human cells indicates their role in the regulated transport and translation of messenger RNAs.
hStaufen is the human homolog of dmStaufen, a double-stranded (ds)RNA-binding protein involved in early development of the fly. hStaufen-containing complexes were purified by affinity chromatographyExpand

TPP1 is required for TERT recruitment, telomere elongation during nuclear reprogramming, and normal skin development in mice.
The TPP1/ACD protein (hereafter TPP1) is a component of the shelterin complex at mammalian telomeres. Here we find that Tpp1-deficient mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) show increased chromosomalExpand

Defective RNA Replication and Late Gene Expression in Temperature-Sensitive Influenza Viruses Expressing Deleted Forms of the NS1 Protein
ABSTRACT Influenza A virus mutants expressing C-terminally deleted forms of the NS1 protein (NS1-81 and NS1-110) were generated by plasmid rescue. These viruses were temperature sensitive and showedExpand

Influenza virus NS1 protein interacts with viral transcription-replication complexes in vivo.
The interaction of influenza virus NS1 protein with other viral products in the infected cell was analysed by co-immunoprecipitation studies. The three subunits of the polymerase and theExpand
