Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...AR requires recruiting the enzyme cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK-9) to the HIV promoter (where transcription begins). CDK-9 chemically modifies the RNA polymerase and enhances its transcribing efficiency. The transcription process—including the labyrinthine protein–protein and protein–DNA (and in the case ...

Scientists identify molecule that regulates well-known tumor suppressor

...t for cancer therapy. The phosphatidylinositol 3' kinase signaling pathway regulates cell growth and survival, and is inhibited by activity of the tumor suppressor PTEN. Research indicates that PTEN exerts its tumor suppressor activity by inhibiting PKB/Akt signaling that is critical for cell survival. Man...

New understanding of DNA repair may pave way to cancer treatments

...Transcription Factor-2") is activated by a protein kinase called ATM ("Ataxia-Telangiectasia Mutated), which stimulates DNA repair. ATF2's role in regulating expression of proteins that control cell cycle and programmed cell death is well established. The current study is the first to demonstrate ATF2's rol...

New tumor-suppressor gene discovered

...in product of the mats gene could partner with the kinase product of a known tumor-suppressor gene named "wts," which turned out to be the case. The researchers performed three experiments to test whether the mats and wts genes interact genetically. In the first experiment, they inserted an additional norm...
