BACKGROUND We have previously studied the histone acetylation in primary human leukemia cells. However, histone H3 methylation in these cells has not been characterized. METHODS This study examined the methylation status at histone H3 lysine 4 (H3K4) and histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9) in primary acute leukemia cells obtained from patients and compared with(More)
Annexins are assumed to be involved in regulating cotton fiber elongation, but direct evidence remains to be presented. Here we cloned six Annexin genes (AnxGb) abundantly expressed in fiber from sea-island cotton (G. barbadense). qRT-PCR results indicated that all six G. barbadense annexin genes were expressed in elongating cotton fibers, while only the(More)
Cotton plant is one of the most important economic crops in the world which supplies natural fiber for textile industry. The crucial traits of cotton fiber quality are fiber length and strength, which are mostly determined by the fiber elongation stage. Annexins are assumed to be involved in regulating fiber elongation, but direct evidences remain elusive.(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously demonstrated that phenylhexyl isothiocyanate (PHI), a synthetic isothiocyanate, inhibits histone deacetylases and remodels chromatins to induce growth arrest in HL-60 myeloid leukemia cells in a concentration-dependent manner. METHODS To investigate the effect of PHI, a novel histone deacetylases inhibitor (HDACi), on(More)
BACKGROUND The canonical Wnt signaling pathway has been considered as a potent oncogenic signaling in the initiation and progression of hematological malignancies. As a key regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway, the role of β-catenin in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) pathogenesis and progression was investigated in this study. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of(More)
