The transcription factor Ets-1 is implicated in various physiological processes and invasive pathologies. We identified a novel variant of ets-1, ets-1Δ(III–VI), resulting from the alternative splicing of exons III to VI. This variant encodes a 27 kDa isoform, named Ets-1 p27. Ets-1 p27 lacks the threonine-38 residue, the Pointed domain and the(More)
Ets-1 is a transcription factor that regulates many genes involved in cancer progression and in tumour invasion. It is a poor prognostic marker for breast, lung, colorectal and ovary carcinomas. Here, we identified poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) as a novel interaction partner of Ets-1. We show that Ets-1 activates, by direct interaction, the(More)
Identification of Ets-1 interaction partners is critical for understanding its properties. Ets-1 DNA-binding is governed by an intramolecular mechanism called autoinhibition. Ets-1 increases its DNA-binding affinity by counteracting autoinhibition through binding either to a particular organization of Ets binding sites (EBS) in palindrome, as in the(More)
The Ets-1 transcription factor plays an important role in various physiological and pathological processes. These diverse roles of Ets-1 are likely to depend on its interaction partner proteins. We used our previously developed, recombinant biotinylated Ets-1 that conserves native Ets-1 properties to identify new interaction partners. Here, based on results(More)
Ets-1 is a transcription factor that plays an important role in various physiological and pathological processes, such as development, angiogenesis, apoptosis and tumour invasion. In the present study, we have demonstrated that Ets-1 p51, but not the spliced variant Ets-1 p42, is processed in a caspase-dependent manner in Jurkat T-leukaemia cells undergoing(More)
Horizontal nondenaturing electrophoresis of proteins in polyacrylamide gels was used to observe specific interactions between membrane proteins. The method was particularly well suited for solubilized transporters of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, and allowed specific complexes of transporter and the inner-membrane protein TonB to be(More)
The transcription factor Ets-1 is involved in various physiological processes and invasive pathologies. Human Ets-1 exists under three isoforms: p51, the predominant full-length isoform, p42 and p27, shorter alternatively spliced isoforms. We have previously demonstrated that Ets-1 p51, but not the spliced variant Ets-1 p42, is processed by caspases in(More)
