The p53 protein can inhibit cell cycling or induce apoptosis, and is thus a critical regulator of tumorigenesis. This protein is negatively regulated by a physical interaction with MDM2, an E3 ubiquitin ligase. This interaction is critical for cell viability; loss of Mdm2 causes cell death in vitro and in vivo in a p53-dependent manner. The recently(More)
The activity of the tumor suppressor p53 is induced in response to DNA-damaging agents such as UV and gamma radiation. Phosphorylation is one of the key regulatory steps for activating p53 function. Recent reports have shown that p53 is phosphorylated at both serines 15 and 392 in response to UV radiation. Phosphorylation at serine 15 prevents the binding(More)
miRNAs play important roles in many biological processes, including erythropoiesis. Although several miRNAs regulate erythroid differentiation, how the key erythroid regulator, GATA-1, directly orchestrates differentiation through miRNA pathways remains unclear. In this study, we identified miR-23a as a key regulator of erythropoiesis, which was upregulated(More)
