PHF2 is a JmjC family histone demethylase that removes the methyl group from H3K9me2 and works as a coactivator for several metabolism-related transcription factors. In this study, we examined the in vivo role of PHF2 in mice. We generated Phf2 floxed mice, systemic Phf2 null mice by crossing Phf2 floxed mice with CMV-Cre transgenic mice, and(More)
We previously demonstrated that colony stimulating factor (CSF)-producing cell lines co-produce interleukin-1 (IL-1) and IL-6 in addition to CSFs. In the present study, we examined the role of IL-1 production in three human tumour cell lines producing granulocyte (G)-CSF, IL-1 and IL-6. Addition of anti-human IL-1 alpha antiserum to the culture caused a(More)
Recently, it has been progressively recognized that gene expression is regulated by histone methylation status, which is dynamically modulated by histone methyltransferases (HMTs) and histone demethylases (HDMs). In the past decade, many HMTs and HDMs were identified and their biological and biochemical functions have been characterized. As with other(More)
