    The complete cDNA sequence of a novel gene, SCIRR69 (spinal cord injury and regeneration related no. 69 gene), was obtained by RACE technique. It codes for a protein of 521 amino acid residues homologous to human CREB3l2 (also known as BBF2H7) and mouse CREB3l2. The protein contains a basic DNA...

    The human nuclear factor related to kappa-B-binding protein (NFRKB) is a 1299-residue protein that is a component of the metazoan INO80 complex involved in chromatin remodeling, transcription regulation, DNA replication and DNA repair. Although full length NFRKB is predicted to be around 65%...

    TBPL2 is the most recently discovered and less characterized member of the TATA box binding protein (TBP) family that also comprises TBP, TATA box binding protein-like 1 (TBPL1), and Drosophila melanogaster TBP related factor (TRF). In this paper we report our in silico and in vitro data on (i)...
