The human genome is composed of long-range G+C% (GC%) mosaic structures thought to be related to chromosome bands. We previously reported a boundary of megabase-sized GC% mosaic domains at the junction area between major histocompatibility complex (MHC) classes II and III, proposing it as a possible chromosome band boundary. DNA replication timing during(More)
Notch signaling is involved in cell fate decisions in many systems including hematopoiesis. It has been shown that expression of an activated form of Notch1 (aNotch1) in 32D mouse myeloid progenitor cells inhibits the granulocytic differentiation induced by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). Results of the current study show that aNotch1, when(More)
Accumulated evidence demonstrates that adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) is frequently associated with eosinophilia, and human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1)-infected cells frequently express interleukin-5 (IL-5). However, the molecular mechanism of constitutive IL-5 expression in HTLV-1-infected cells remains unclear. To clarify the mechanism of aberrant(More)
To know the involvement of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the metastasis of mouse FBJ osteosarcoma cells, N α -lauroyl-O-(β-d-xylopyranosyl)-l-serinamide (Xyl-Ser-C12), which initiates elongation of GAG chains using the glycan biosynthesis system in cells, was administered to FBJ cells with different metastatic capacities. Production of glycosylated products(More)
The t(11;19)(q23;p13.1) translocation is frequently found in adult myeloid leukemia. In the MLL/MEN fusion protein generated by this translocation, most of the coding region of the MEN protein, an RNA polymerase II elongation factor, is fused to the N-terminal third of the MLL protein, a possible transcriptional regulator. However, the molecular mechanism(More)
