As a transcription factor, p53 modulates several cellular responses including cell-cycle control, apoptosis, and differentiation. In this study, we have shown that an actin regulatory protein, gelsolin (GSN), can physically interact with p53. The nuclear localization of p53 is inhibited by GSN overexpression in hepatocarcinoma HepG2 cells. Additionally, we(More)
Pax6 is a member of the Pax family of transcription factors that contains a DNA binding paired-box and homeobox domain. In animals, including humans, Pax6 plays a key role in development, regulating organogenesis of the eye and brain. The current data show that histone acetyltransferase Tip60 physically interacts with Pax6 in developing post-natal day 4(More)
The tumor suppressor and transcription factor p53 is a key modulator of cellular stress responses and can trigger apoptosis in many cell types, including neurons. In this study, we have shown that the Microtubule-Associated Protein 1B (MAP1B) light chain can interact with the tumor suppressor p53. We also demonstrate that both p53 and the MAP1B light chain(More)
p73 and p53 have been known to play an important role in cellular damage responses such as apoptosis. Although p73 is a structural and functional homolog of p53 tumor suppressor gene, much less is known about the mechanism of p73-induced apoptotic cell death. In this study, we demonstrate that p19(ras) interaction with p73beta amplifies p73beta-induced(More)
The nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) family is involved in the expressions of numerous genes, in development, apoptosis, inflammatory responses, and oncogenesis. In this study we identified four NF-κB target genes that are modulated by TIP60. We also found that TIP60 interacts with the NF-κB RelA/p65 subunit and increases its transcriptional activity through(More)
TIP60, a histone acetyl transferase, acts as a p53 coactivator by interfering with MDM2-mediated degradation of p53. However, little is known about its functional regulation of p73, which has structural features similar to p53. In this study we found that TIP60 represses apoptosis, which is induced by exogenous and endogenous p73beta. TIP60 also negatively(More)
TIP60 can act as a transcriptional activator or a repressor depending on the cellular context. However, little is known about the role of the chromodomain in the functional regulation of TIP60. In this study, we found that TIP60 interacted with H3K4me3 in response to TNF-α signaling. TIP60 bound to H3K4me3 at the promoters of the NF-κB target genes IL6 and(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-mediated death. Although various therapeutic approaches are used for lung cancer treatment, these mainly target the tumor suppressor p53 transcription factor, which is involved in apoptosis and cell cycle arrest. However, p53-targeted therapies have limited application in lung cancer, since p53 is found to be(More)
Caldesmon (CaD), which was originally identified as an actin-regulatory protein, is involved in the regulation of diverse actin-related signaling processes, including cell migration and proliferation, in various cells. The cellular function of CaD has been studied primarily in the smooth muscle system; nothing is known about its function in skeletal muscle(More)
The progression of muscle differentiation is tightly controlled by multiple groups of transcription factors and transcriptional coregulators. MyoD is a transcription factor of the myogenic basic helix-loop-helix family required for the process of muscle cell differentiation. We now show that Tip60 is required for myoblast differentiation via enhancement of(More)
