      Ho, JSY; Angel, M; Ma, Y; Sloan, E; Wang, G; Martinez-Romero, C; Alenquer, M; Roudko, V; Chung, L; Zheng, S; Chang, M; Fstkchyan, Y; Clohisey, S; Dinan, AM; Gibbs, J; Gifford, R; Shen, R; Gu, Q; Irigoyen, N; Campisi, L; Huang, C; Zhao, N; Jones, JD; van Knippenberg, I; Zhu, Z; Moshkina, N; Meyer, L; Noel, J; Peralta, Z; Rezelj, V; Kaake, R; Rosenberg, B; Wang, B; Wei, J; Paessler, S; Wise, HM; Johnson, J; Vannini, A; Amorim, MJ; Baillie, JK; Miraldi, ER; Benner, C; Brierley, I; Digard, P; Łuksza, M; Firth, AE; Krogan, N; Greenbaum, BD; MacLeod, MK; van Bakel, H; Garcìa-Sastre, A; Yewdell, JW; Hutchinson, E; Marazzi, I (2020-06-18)
      RNA viruses are a major human health threat. The life cycles of many highly pathogenic RNA viruses like influenza A virus (IAV) and Lassa virus depends on host mRNA, because viral polymerases cleave 5'-m7G-capped host ...
    • Mechanism of selective recruitment of RNA polymerases II and III to snRNA gene promoters. 

      Dergai, O; Cousin, P; Gouge, J; Satia, K; Praz, V; Kuhlman, T; Lhôte, P; Vannini, A; Hernandez, N (2018-05-21)
      RNA polymerase II (Pol II) small nuclear RNA (snRNA) promoters and type 3 Pol III promoters have highly similar structures; both contain an interchangeable enhancer and "proximal sequence element" (PSE), which recruits the ...
    • Molecular mechanisms of Bdp1 in TFIIIB assembly and RNA polymerase III transcription initiation. 

      Gouge, J; Guthertz, N; Kramm, K; Dergai, O; Abascal-Palacios, G; Satia, K; Cousin, P; Hernandez, N; Grohmann, D; Vannini, A (2017-07-25)
      Initiation of gene transcription by RNA polymerase (Pol) III requires the activity of TFIIIB, a complex formed by Brf1 (or Brf2), TBP (TATA-binding protein), and Bdp1. TFIIIB is required for recruitment of Pol III and to ...
    • New tricks for an old dog: Brf2-dependent RNA Polymerase III transcription in oxidative stress and cancer. 

      Gouge, J; Vannini, A (2018-01)
      Here, we discuss the role of Brf2, an RNA Polymerase III core transcription factor, as a master switch of the oxidative stress response. We highlight the interplay of Brf2 with the Nrf2/Keap1 pathway, as well as the role ...
