The process of apoptosis is responsible for normal cellular turnover in numerous tissues throughout the body. The endometrial layer of the uterus shows steroid-dependent cyclic changes in structure and function. After a proliferative and secretory phase, steroid support is withdrawn and the uterine epithelium is shed. We hypothesize that the apoptosis(More)
It has recently been shown that the transcription factor Erg, an Ets family member, drives constitutive expression of the intercellular adhesion molecule 2 (ICAM-2) in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and that its expression is down-regulated by the pleiotropic cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). To identify other Erg target(More)
Loss of function mutation in FBXW7, an E3 ubiquitin ligase, is associated with good prognosis and early glucocorticoid treatment response in childhood T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) by unknown mechanisms. Here, we show that FBXW7 targets the glucocorticoid receptor α (GRα) for ubiquitylation and proteasomal degradation in a manner dependent on(More)
Analysis of the N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU)-induced repro42 mutation previously identified spermatogenesis associated 22 (Spata22) as a gene required for meiotic progression and fertility in both male and female mice, but its specific contribution to the process was unclear. Here, we report on a novel, null allele of Spata22 (Spata22Gt ) and confirm its(More)
