Coregulator exchange and sphingosine-sensitive cooperativity of steroidogenic factor-1, general control nonderepressed 5, p54, and p160 coactivators regulate cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate-dependent cytochrome P450c17 transcription rate

Transcription of the cytochrome P450 17 (CYP17) gene is regulated by cAMP-dependent binding of steroidogenic factor-1 (SF-1) to its promoter in the adrenal cortex. Using temporal chromatin immunoprecipitation and mammalian two-hybrid experiments, we establish the reciprocal presence of coactivators [general control nonderepressed (GCN5), cAMP response element-binding protein-binding protein, p300, p300/cAMP response element-binding protein-binding protein CBP associated factor, p160s, polypyrimidine tract associated splicing factor, and p54(nrb)], corepressors (class I histone deacetylases, receptor interacting protein, nuclear receptor corepressor, and Sin3A), and SWI/SNF (human homolog of yeast mating type switching/sucrose nonfermenting) and imitation SWI chromatin remodeling ATPases on the CYP17 promoter during transcription cycles in the H295R adrenocortical cell line. A ternary GCN5/SRC-1/SF-1 complex forms on the CYP17 promoter with cAMP-dependence within 30 min of cAMP stimulation, and corresponds with SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling. This complex is sensitive to the SF-1 antagonist sphingosine and results in decreased transcription of CYP17. GCN5 acetyltransferase activity and carboxy terminus binding proteins alternative...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
