Smad4 and FAST-1 in the assembly of activin-responsive factor
- X. Chen, E. Weisberg, Valérie Fridmacher, M. Watanabe, Grace Naco, M. Whitman
- Medicine, Biology
- 4 September 1997
Members of the TGF-beta superfamily of signalling molecules work by activating transmembrane receptors with phosphorylating activity (serine-threonine kinase receptors); these in turn phosphorylate… Expand
A chemical probe selectively inhibits G9a and GLP methyltransferase activity in cells.

Protein lysine methyltransferases G9a and GLP modulate the transcriptional repression of a variety of genes via dimethylation of Lys9 on histone H3 (H3K9me2) as well as dimethylation of non-histone… Expand
Regulation of CSF1 Promoter by the SWI/SNF-like BAF Complex
The mammalian BAF complex regulates gene expression by modifying chromatin structure. In this report, we identify 80 genes activated and 2 genes repressed by the BAF complex in SW-13 cells. We find… Expand
The metabolic profile of tumors depends on both the responsible genetic lesion and tissue type.
The altered metabolism of tumors has been considered a target for anticancer therapy. However, the relationship between distinct tumor-initiating lesions and anomalies of tumor metabolism in vivo has… Expand
Torque-speed relationship of the flagellar rotary motor of Escherichia coli.
The output of a rotary motor is characterized by its torque and speed. We measured the torque-speed relationship of the flagellar rotary motor of Escherichia coli by a new method. Small latex spheres… Expand
Translocation of mixed lineage kinase domain-like protein to plasma membrane leads to necrotic cell death
Mixed lineage kinase domain-like protein (MLKL) was identified to function downstream of receptor interacting protein 3 (RIP3) in tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF)-induced necrosis (also called… Expand
Pyroptosis is driven by non-selective gasdermin-D pore and its morphology is different from MLKL channel-mediated necroptosis
Necroptosis and pyroptosis are two forms of programmed cell death with a common feature of plasma membrane rupture. Here we studied the morphology and mechanism of pyroptosis in comparison with… Expand
Interactions within the yeast t-SNARE Sso1p that control SNARE complex assembly
- M. Munson, X. Chen, A. E. Cocina, S. Schultz, F. Hughson
- Biology, Medicine
- Nature Structural Biology
- 1 October 2000
In the eukaryotic secretory and endocytic pathways, transport vesicles shuttle cargo among intracellular organelles and to and from the plasma membrane. Cargo delivery entails fusion of the transport… Expand
Discovery of a 2,4-diamino-7-aminoalkoxyquinazoline as a potent and selective inhibitor of histone lysine methyltransferase G9a.
- F. Liu, X. Chen, +17 authors J. Jin
- Chemistry, Medicine
- Journal of medicinal chemistry
- 24 December 2009
SAR exploration of the 2,4-diamino-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline template led to the discovery of 8 (UNC0224) as a potent and selective G9a inhibitor. A high resolution X-ray crystal structure of the… Expand
Testis-specific TAF homologs collaborate to control a tissue-specific transcription program
Alternate forms of the PolII transcription initiation machinery have been proposed to play a role in selective activation of cell-type-specific gene expression programs during cellular… Expand
