The transcription factor CCAAT/enhancer binding protein beta, C/EBPbeta, plays a significant role in the regulation of hepatocyte growth and differentiation. A single mRNA coding for C/EBPbeta produces several protein isoforms. Two pathways for generation of low molecular weight C/EBPbeta isoforms have been described: specific proteolytic cleavage and(More)
Myotonic dystrophy (DM) is a neuromuscular disorder associated with CTG triplet repeat expansion in the myotonin protein kinase gene ( DMPK ). We previously proposed a hypothesis suggesting that the expanded CUG repeats sequester specific RNA-binding proteins and that such a sequestration results in abnormal RNA processing of several RNAs containing CUG(More)
Aplesia Ras homologue member I (ARHI, DIRAS3) is a Ras-related imprinted growth inhibitory gene whose expression is down-regulated in the majority of breast and ovarian cancers. This study investigated the inhibitory function of ARHI in pancreatic cancer. Six pancreatic cancer cell lines, tumor xenografts in nude mice and 20 pancreatic cancer tissue(More)
