In 72 pregnant women with culture-proved vaginal candidiasis, and an equal number of controls matched for parity, size, stage of gestation and age, the intravenous glucose tolerance curves were compared using Silverstone's method. The results in both study and control groups did not differ and resembled closely those in Silverstone's series. Half the study(More)
Kaiso is the first member of the POZ family of zinc finger transcription factors reported to bind DNA with dual-specificity in both a sequence- and methyl-CpG-specific manner. Here, we report that Kaiso associates with and regulates the cyclin D1 promoter via the consensus Kaiso binding site (KBS), and also via methylated CpG-dinucleotides. The methyl-CpG(More)
Kaiso is a dual-specificity POZ-ZF transcription factor that regulates gene expression by binding to sequence-specific Kaiso binding sites (KBS) or methyl-CpG dinucleotide pairs. Kaiso was first identified as a binding partner for the epithelial cell adhesion regulator p120(ctn). The p120(ctn)/Kaiso interaction is reminiscent of the beta-catenin/TCF(More)
