AT Rich Sequence definition: A nucleic acid sequence that contains an above average number of ADENINE and THYMINE bases.
Rhombotin 2 definition: Rhombotin 2, an LMO (LIM-only) family member that functions in hematopoiesis, is encoded by the LMO2 gene. With two LIM domains and a cysteine-rich motif, rhombotin 2 is part of a multi-protein transcription regulatory complex that includes GATA-1. LMO2 protein binds to the bHLH TAL1 protein and interacts with retinoblastoma binding protein-2, enhancing transcription. Chromosomal translocations involving LMO2 are associated with T-cell leukemias. (from OMIM 180385 and NCI)
CpG Islands definition: Areas of increased density of the dinucleotide sequence cytosine--phosphate diester--guanine. They form stretches of DNA several hundred to several thousand base pairs long. In humans there are about 45,000 CpG islands, mostly found at the 5' ends of genes. They are unmethylated except for those on the inactive X chromosome and some associated with imprinted genes.
CpG Island definition: Short region of DNA in which the frequency of the CG sequence is higher than in other regions.
CpG island definition: area of increased density of dinucleotide sequence guanine- phosphate diester-cytosine; unmethylated; site of frequent mutations; may be associated with constitutively expressed housekeeping genes.
Pennisetum definition: A plant genus of the family POACEAE. The seed is one of the millets used in CEREALS. It contains vitexin. The common name of buffelgrass is also used for CENCHRUS.
ARMET Protein definition: Encoded by human oncogene ARMET Gene, ARMET Protein is a highly conserved arginine-rich putative secreted product that belongs to the ARMET family. (Swiss-Prot, OMIM, and NCI)
PHAPI2 Protein definition: Encoded by human oncogene ANP32B Gene, 272-amino acid 31 kD PHAPI2 is similar to PHAPI. (Swiss-Prot, LocusLink, and NCI)
Taxodium definition: A plant genus of the family TAXODIACEAE. Members contain taxodione and taxodone, which are diterpenoid quinone methide tumor inhibitors.
AU-rich element binding definition: Interacting selectively with AU-rich elements within the 3' untranslated region of mRNAs. [GOC:mah, PMID:7892223]
ANP32B Gene definition: This gene plays a regulatory role in the propagation of pro-apoptotic events.
ARMET Gene definition: This gene is involved in transcriptional regulation.
Cysteine-Rich Domain definition: The Cysteine-Rich Domain is usually found in two copies per protein. It contains up to four conserved cysteines. The family includes a subunit from heterodisulfide reductase and a subunit from glycolate oxidase and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase. (Pfam PF02754)
ARID Domain definition: The approximately 100-amino acid ARID (AT-Rich Interaction Domain) DNA-binding domain occurs in some transcriptional regulators (and perhaps modifiers of chromatin structure) involved in embryonic development, cell lineage, and cell cycle control. The domain shows more diversity in structure and function than the highly conserved sequence suggests: at least six alpha helices separated by beta-strands, loops, or turns. Although Bright, dead ringer, and MRF-2 preferentially bind to AT-rich sites, DNA binding of ARID-proteins is not necessarily sequence specific; ARID protein p270 of the SWI-SNF complex exhibits non-specific DNA binding activity. ARID family proteins may be involved in a wide range of DNA interactions. Inappropriate expression of ARID proteins is increasingly implicated in tumorigenesis.
LIM Domain definition: The LIM domain is a zinc binding, cysteine rich motif consisting of two tandemly repeated zinc fingers. Unlike GATA type zinc fingers, LIM domains do not bind DNA but instead mediate protein-protein interactions. Functionally, LIM domain containing proteins have been implicated in cell lineage specification, cytoskeletal organization, and organ development.
Cysteine-Rich Protein 61 definition: A CCN protein family member that regulates a variety of extracellular functions including CELL ADHESION; CELL MIGRATION; and EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX synthesis. It may play an important role in the development of branched CAPILLARIES during EMBRYOGENESIS.
