In the dark, plant seedlings follow the skotomorphogenetic developmental program, which results in hypocotyl cell elongation. When the seedlings are exposed to light, a switch to photomorphogenetic development occurs, and hypocotyl cell elongation is inhibited. We have manipulated the expression of the AtPGP1 (for Arabidopsis thaliana P glycoprotein1) gene(More)
We describe a novel regulatory mechanism for DNA polymerase beta (Polbeta), a protein involved in DNA base excision repair (BER). Polbeta colocalized in vivo and formed a complex with the transcriptional coactivator p300. p300 interacted with Polbeta through distinct domains and acetylated Polbeta in vitro. Polbeta acetylation was furthermore observed in(More)
In eukaryotic cells DNA is associated with proteins to form a complex known as chromatin. The dominant proteins within this chromatin complex are the histones, which are subject to a wide variety of covalent and reversible posttranslational modifications such as acetylation. A specialized family of enzymes, the histone acetyl transferases, catalyzes the(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 3C (EBNA3C), encoded by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), is essential for mediating transformation of human B lymphocytes. Previous studies demonstrated that EBNA3C interacts with a small, nonhistone, highly acidic, high-mobility group-like nuclear protein prothymosin alpha (ProT(alpha)) and the transcriptional coactivator(More)
