We have isolated a series of genomic and cDNA clones mapping within the boundaries of constitutional and tumor deletions that define the Wilms' tumor locus on human chromosome 11 (band p13). The transcription unit corresponding to these clones spans approximately 50 kb and encodes an mRNA approximately 3 kb long. This mRNA is expressed in a limited range of cell types, predominantly in the kidney and a subset of hematopoietic cells. The polypeptide encoded by this locus has a number of features… Expand
Isolation and Characterization of a Novel Zinc-finger Protein with Transcriptional Repressor Activity (*)
TLDR
Fusion of the upstream regulatory region of ZNF174 to the DNA-binding domain of GAL4 revealed that the gene could confer a repression function on the heterologous DNA- binding domain, and was found to be a novel transcriptional repressor. Expand
An internal deletion within an 11p13 zinc finger gene contributes to the development of Wilms' tumor
TLDR
It is concluded that inactivation of this gene, which is primarily expressed in fetal kidney, is part of a series of events leading to the development of Wilms' tumor. Expand
Molecular Cloning of the cDNA and Chromosome Localization of the Gene for Human Ubiquitin-conjugating Enzyme 9*
TLDR
It is concluded that hUBC9 retains striking structural and functional conservation with yUBC 9 and suggest a possible link of the ubiquitin/proteosome proteolytic pathway and the WT1 transcriptional repressor system. Expand
Binding of the Wilms' tumor locus zinc finger protein to the EGR-1 consensus sequence.
TLDR
Results suggest that the WTL protein may act at the DNA binding site of a growth factor-inducible gene and that loss of DNA-binding activity contributes to the tumorigenic process. Expand
Isolation and expression of linked zinc finger gene clusters on human chromosome 11q.
TLDR
This analysis defines two linked multigene families of zinc finger genes to chromosome bands associated with a high frequency of specific translocations associated with malignancies as well as three novel genes found to be expressed in normal adult human tissues. Expand
cDNA isolation, genomic structure, regulation, and chromosomal localization of human lung Kruppel-like factor.
TLDR
The isolation and chromosomal mapping of human LKLF will make it possible to initiate studies devoted to assess the involvement of this gene in human disease(s), and of particular interest is the finding that while sequences in the proximal promoter have diverged between mouse and human, a region of 75 nucleotides is essentially identical. Expand
Isolation of a zinc finger motif (ZNF75) mapping on chromosome Xq26.
TLDR
The partial characterization of a new human zinc finger (ZNF75) gene of the Kruppel type mapping to the long arm of the X chromosome is reported, in a region not previously known to contain zinc finger genes. Expand
The genomic organization and expression of the WT1 gene.
TLDR
To facilitate the search for smaller deletions and point mutations, the genomic organization of the WT1 gene is established and the sequence of all 10 exons and flanking intron DNA is determined, forming the basis for future studies of mutant alleles at this locus. Expand
Isolation and expression analysis of a human zinc finger gene (ZNF41) located on the short arm of the X chromosome.
TLDR
Southern analyses of somatic cell hybrids containing either intact or rearranged X chromosomes confirm the genomic origin of the isolated gene and establish that it is localized between Xcen and Xp22. Expand
A novel X-linked member of the human zinc finger protein gene family: isolation, mapping, and expression
TLDR
Sequence analysis showed that ZNF81 may encode a polypeptide(s) containing tandem arrays of 12 canonical C2H2 zinc fingers of the Krüppel-type at the C-terminus, which supports the hypothesis that it is an expressed, functional member of this multigene family. Expand

A gene encoding a messenger RNA (mRNA) of 4.6 kilobases, located in the proximity of esterase D, was identified as the retinoblastoma susceptibility (RB) gene on the basis of chromosomal location, homozygous deletion, and tumor-specific alterations in expression. Expand
