Peroxiredoxins (Prxs) are a family of antioxidant proteins that reduce peroxide levels by using reducing agents such as thioredoxin. These proteins were characterized to have a number of cellular functions, including cell proliferation and differentiation and protection of specific proteins from oxidative damage. However, the physiological roles of the(More)
We have previously described a dominant-negative mutant of cJun that lacks the transactivation domain (TAD) of cJun and prevents AP-1-mediated transcriptional activation by quenching endogenous Jun or Fos proteins. We now report the development of a panel of cJun mutants that have inactivating mutations in the TAD, DNA-binding domain (DBD), or leucine(More)
Tam-67 is an amino-terminal deletion mutant of c-Jun (delta3-122) lacking most of the c-Jun transactivation domain, which has been shown previously to function in a transdominant fashion to inhibit c-Jun-induced transactivation and cellular transformation. In order to create a ligand-dependent dominant negative repressor of AP-1, we have constructed a(More)
Erythropoiesis is a complex multistage process for the differentiation of mature erythrocytes from hematopoietic stem cells. The function of several transcription factors has been reported in hematopoietic stem cell differentiation. However, the molecular basis governing its functional behavior is unclear. In this study, we characterized the role of Zfpm-1(More)
