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)
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)
