Understanding how DNA binding proteins control global gene expression and chromosomal maintenance requires knowledge of the chromosomal locations at which these proteins function in vivo. We developed a microarray method that reveals the genome-wide location of DNA-bound proteins and used this method to monitor binding of gene-specific transcription(More)
The transcriptional regulatory networks that specify and maintain human tissue diversity are largely uncharted. To gain insight into this circuitry, we used chromatin immunoprecipitation combined with promoter microarrays to identify systematically the genes occupied by the transcriptional regulators HNF1alpha, HNF4alpha, and HNF6, together with RNA(More)
Retinoblastoma protein (pRB) mediates cell-cycle withdrawal and differentiation by interacting with a variety of proteins. RB-Binding Protein 2 (RBP2) has been shown to be a key effector. We sought to determine transcriptional regulation by RBP2 genome-wide by using location analysis and gene expression profiling experiments. We describe that RBP2 shows(More)
The Escherichia coli export chaperone SecB binds nascent precursors of certain periplasmic and outer membrane proteins and prevents them from folding or aggregating in the cytoplasm. In this study, we demonstrate that the C-terminal 13 residues of SecB were highly mobile using (1)H NMR spectroscopy. A protein lacking the C-terminal 13 amino acids of(More)
A search for Candida albicans mutants defective in filamentous growth led to the isolation of a mutant strain with an insertion mutation in the SEC14 gene. SEC14 encodes the phosphatidylinositol/phosphatidylcholine transfer protein, an essential protein in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In the dimorphic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, SEC14 is needed for(More)
