Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia: Molecular Genetics, Mouse by Pier Paolo Pandolfi (Editor), Peter K. Vogt (Editor)

By Pier Paolo Pandolfi (Editor), Peter K. Vogt (Editor)

During the last 10 years, paintings on acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) has turn into the paradigm of translational examine that begun with the invention of a recurrent chromosomal translocation, by means of the id of the genes and proteins concerned, discovering their molecular services in transcriptional keep an eye on, setting up mouse versions and culminating within the improvement  of exact remedy.

T-Cell Trafficking: Methods and Protocols

Within the final decade, a great number of significant discoveries have make clear the molecular mechanisms of lymphocyte migration and the anatomy of immune responses. In T-Cell Trafficking: equipment and Protocols, specialist researchers discover how the advance of novel and state of the art concepts, really within the box of real-time imaging and genetic manipulation, have resulted in an elevated realizing of lymphocyte trafficking.

Technologists are mostly nonetheless making do with the classical e-book edited by means of Sconce, yet that's greater than thirty years previous. on the time of its ebook, steel anodes have been simply commencing to seem, and ion-exchange membrane know-how used to be restrained to laboratories.

Plant Surface Microbiology

Such a lot crops strongly depend upon the co-existence with microorganisms: either teams reap the benefits of those symbioses. it's been proven that an enormous variety of particular genes in vegetation and microorganisms are just activated in the course of those interactions. in fact, a number of microbes additionally act as pathogens. Interactions among vegetation and microorganisms are frequently situated on plant surfaces, comparable to leaf cuticles, seeds and as a rule at the roots.

Example text

The modification occurred at a lysine in RD2, the second repression domain of PLZF [40]. Sumoylation increased DNA binding, and mutation of this lysine residue (K242) resulted in decreased DNA binding and transcriptional repression, suggesting that sumoylation augments transcriptional repression by PLZF. Whether PLZF sumoylation occurs in vivo has not been determined, although PLZF is found in PML bodies, where a number of proteins are known to be sumoylated. Further, sumoylation is associated with transcriptional repression and repressive chromatin, again reminiscent of the action of PLZF [27].

The effect of SU11657 on leukemias that arose in cells expressing MRP8 PML-RARA plus an activated FLT3 was assessed (Sohal et al. 2003). Although SU11657 had limited effect as a single agent, the combination of SU11657 plus ATRA rapidly restored normal hematopoiesis in the bone marrow and resulted in a marked reduction in splenic involvement by the leukemic cells. A number of FLT3 inhibitors are under study in human clinical trials (Krause and Van Etten 2005). Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) has growth suppressive and differentiative effects on myeloid leukemia cells.
