Myb proteins regulate the expression of diverse target genes
MetadataShow full item record
Hematopoiesis, the process by which mature blood cells arise, is controlled by multiple transcription factors, which act in stage- and lineage-specific complexes. It is a major goal to elucidate the genes regulated by these transcription factors, in order to obtain a full understanding of the process and its malignant counterpart, leukemia. Myb family transcription factors play a central role in hematopoicsis. To identify new Myb family target genes, we have used an inducible dominant-negative protein for a subtraction cloning protocol in a model cell system (FDCP-Mix) with many characteristics of normal hematopoiesis. We present here a novel group of 29 validated Myb family target genes of diverse functions. Published online 20 December 2004.
