The human Tap protein is a nuclear mRNA export factor that contains novel RNA-binding and nucleocytoplasmic transport sequences.
The constitutive transport element (CTE) encoded by simian type D retroviruses directs unspliced viral RNAs into a nuclear export pathway that is congruent with the pathway used by cellular mRNAs.Expand

CCL20 is an inducible product of human airway epithelia with innate immune properties.
Chemokine ligand 20 (CCL20) and human beta-defensins (HBDs) share structural and functional properties, including antiparallel beta-pleated sheet core structures, charge distribution, and signalingExpand

Gene Transfer of Ig-Fusion Proteins Into B Cells Prevents and Treats Autoimmune Diseases1
Based on the tolerogenic properties of IgG carriers and B cell Ag presentation, we developed a retrovirally mediated gene expression approach for treatment of autoimmune conditions. In this study, weExpand

Inhibition of sphingosine kinase 2 downregulates the expression of c-Myc and Mcl-1 and induces apoptosis in multiple myeloma.
Sphingolipid metabolism is being increasingly recognized as a key pathway in regulating cancer cell survival and proliferation. However, very little is known about its role in multiple myeloma (MM).Expand

Identification and Functional Characterization of a High-Affinity Bel-1 DNA Binding Site Located in the Human Foamy Virus Internal Promoter
ABSTRACT The transcription of genes carried by primate foamy viruses is dependent on two distinct promoter elements. These are the long terminal repeat (LTR) promoter, which regulates expression ofExpand

Inhibition of thioredoxin activates mitophagy and overcomes adaptive bortezomib resistance in multiple myeloma
BackgroundAlthough current chemotherapy using bortezomib (Velcade) against multiple myeloma in adults has achieved significant responses and even remission, a majority of patients will developExpand

Analysis of Cellular Factors That Mediate Nuclear Export of RNAs Bearing the Mason-Pfizer Monkey Virus Constitutive Transport Element
ABSTRACT There is now convincing evidence that the human Tap protein plays a critical role in mediating the nuclear export of mRNAs that contain the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus constitutive transportExpand
