TLDR
N-myc and N-cym are unique in that they appear to be coregulated in tumor cell lines under basal growth conditions and in response to the differentiating agent retinoic acid, which suggests that their protein products may be functionally interrelated during normal development and oncogenesis.
Tenascin-X: a novel extracellular matrix protein encoded by the human XB gene overlapping P450c21B
TLDR
Genetic data suggest that TN-X may be essential for life, a protein that closely resembles tenascin and which is expressed ubiquitously in human fetal tissues and in fetal skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle.
Identification of an endogenous RNA transcribed from the antisense strand of the HFE gene.
TLDR
A ribonuclease A protection assay definitively demonstrated the biological existence of the HFE antisense RNA, which appears to be expressed in all of the tissues and cell lines tested, and in vitro coupled transcription-translation experiments revealed that the H FE expression is decreased by this antisenseRNA, indicating that it may play a critical role in the regulation of the hereditary haemochromatosis gene expression.
The orphan receptor Rev-ErbA alpha activates transcription via a novel response element
TLDR
Rev-Erb is a transcriptional activator whose properties differ dramatically from those of classical nuclear hormone receptors, including the TR encoded on the opposite strand of the same genomic locus.
Isolation and Characterization of a cDNA Encoding a Chicken β Thyroid Hormone Receptor
TLDR
The chicken TRβ (chTRβ) in vitro translated protein binds T3 with high affinity, and binds both the thyroid hormone response element from the rat growth hormone gene and the Xenopus vitellogenin A2 gene estrogen response element (ERE), similarly to that of the rat TRβ-1.
Isolation of a cDNA encoding human Rev-ErbA alpha: transcription from the noncoding DNA strand of a thyroid hormone receptor gene results in a related protein that does not bind thyroid hormone.
TLDR
The conservation of the bidirectionally transcribed regions of c-erbA alpha-2 and Rev-ErbA alpha in human and rat suggests that this unusual genomic arrangement has an important function, perhaps related to the regulation of gene expression.
The gene encoding the oligodendrocyte-myelin glycoprotein is embedded within the neurofibromatosis type 1 gene
In the course of efforts to identify the neurofibromatosis type 1 gene (NF1), three genes were found embedded within an intron of NF1. The cDNA sequence of one of these genes (OMGP) encodes

Two v-erbA-related genes, named ear-2 and ear-3, have been identified in the human genome and characterized by cDNA cloning. These genes are predicted to encode proteins that are very similar in
Alternative splicing generates messages encoding rat c-erbA proteins that do not bind thyroid hormone.
TLDR
The nucleotide and predicted amino acid sequences of two variant cDNAs showed virtual identity with the rat brain thyroid hormone receptor (rTR alpha) vI and vII, suggesting that the variants might have modulating functions in thyroid hormone action.
Two mammalian genes transcribed from opposite strands of the same DNA locus.
TLDR
The characterization of a genomic locus in the rat that encodes overlapping genes occupying both strands of the same piece of DNA, which encodes gonadotropin-releasing hormone and SH, is described.
A novel thyroid hormone receptor encoded by a cDNA clone from a human testis library.
TLDR
It is shown that the erbA-T protein binds specifically to 3,5,3'-triiodo-L-thyronine with a dissociation constant of 3.8 +/- 0.2 x 10(-10) M, implying that more than one thyroid hormone receptor exists in humans and that these receptors might have different tissue- and gene-activating specificities.

TLDR
The apparent close proximity of the c-erbA sequences to the chromosomal breakpoints in these two leukemias suggests a possible role for this oncogene homologue in the development of these neoplasms.
Overlapping transcription units in the dopa decarboxylase region of Drosophila
TLDR
A quite different situation of overlap between the 3′ termini of a pair of convergent transcription units in another region of the Drosophila genome is reported, which raises the possibility that a hybrid molecule involving the two transcripts forms in vivo or that transcription interference occurs, with concomitant regulatory implications.
A mouse locus at which transcription from both DNA strands produces mRNAs complementary at their 3′ ends
TLDR
The finding that the artificial introduction into cells of DNA constructs synthesizing anti-sense RNAs complementary to regions of mRNA transcribed from a chromosomal gene, can inhibit the gene's activity is discussed, presumably by the formation of double-stranded RNA.
Thyroid hormone receptor α isoforms generated by alternative splicing differentially activate myosin HC gene transcription
TLDR
It is shown here that the rTRα1 receptor is a thyroid hormone-dependent transcriptional factor, which upon binding the T3 responsive element of the α-mHC gene, activates expression of this gene in vivo.
Characterization of a thyroid hormone receptor expressed in human kidney and other tissues.
TLDR
Identification of human thyroid hormone receptor type alpha 2 indicates that two or more forms of thyroid hormone receptors exist in human tissues and may explain the normal variation in thyroid hormone responsiveness of various organs and the selective tissue abnormalities found in the thyroid hormone resistance syndromes.
