    • Acetylation increases access of remodelling complexes to their nucleosome targets to enhance initiation of V(D)J recombination. 

      Nightingale, KP; Baumann, M; Eberharter, A; Mamais, A; Becker, PB; Boyes, J (2007-01)
      Targeted chromatin remodelling is essential for many nuclear processes, including the regulation of V(D)J recombination. ATP-dependent nucleosome remodelling complexes are important players in this process whose activity ...
    • Alternative catalytic residues in the active site of Esco acetyltransferases. 

      Ajam, T; De, I; Petkau, N; Whelan, G; Pena, V; Eichele, G (2020-06-17)
      Cohesin is a protein complex whose core subunits, Smc1, Smc3, Scc1, and SA1/SA2 form a ring-like structure encircling the DNA. Cohesins play a key role in the expression, repair, and segregation of eukaryotic genomes. ...

      Although genome-wide association studies have identified over 100 risk loci that explain ∼33% of familial risk for prostate cancer (PrCa), their functional effects on risk remain largely unknown. Here we use genotype data ...
    • BRD4 Promotes DNA Repair and Mediates the Formation of TMPRSS2-ERG Gene Rearrangements in Prostate Cancer. 

      Li, X; Baek, G; Ramanand, SG; Sharp, A; Gao, Y; Yuan, W; Welti, J; Rodrigues, DN; Dolling, D; Figueiredo, I; Sumanasuriya, S; Crespo, M; Aslam, A; Li, R; Yin, Y; Mukherjee, B; Kanchwala, M; Hughes, AM; Halsey, WS; Chiang, C-M; Xing, C; Raj, GV; Burma, S; de Bono, J; Mani, RS (2018-01)
      BRD4 belongs to the bromodomain and extraterminal (BET) family of chromatin reader proteins that bind acetylated histones and regulate gene expression. Pharmacological inhibition of BRD4 by BET inhibitors (BETi) has indicated ...
    • Deregulated expression of HDAC9 in B cells promotes development of lymphoproliferative disease and lymphoma in mice.
