In this work we have studied the mechanisms of regulation of expression of androgen receptor (AR) target genes. We have used an immortalized non-tumorigenic prostate cell line RWPE-1-AR(tag) constitutively expressing an exogenous AR as a model. We observed that all studied AR target genes exhibited a specific expression during the G1 phase of the cell cycle(More)
The mechanisms contributing to transcription-associated genomic instability are both complex and incompletely understood. Although R-loops are normal transcriptional intermediates, they are also associated with genomic instability. Here, we show that BRCA1 is recruited to R-loops that form normally over a subset of transcription termination regions. There(More)
BRCA1, a breast and ovarian cancer-suppressor gene, exerts tumor-suppressing functions that appear to be associated, at least in part, with its DNA repair, checkpoint, and mitotic regulatory activities. Earlier work from our laboratory also suggested an ability of BRCA1 to communicate with the inactive X chromosome (Xi) in female somatic cells (Ganesan et(More)
