    Motivation: ChIP-seq is becoming the main approach to the genome-wide study of protein--DNA interactions and histone modifications. Existing informatics tools perform well to extract strong ChIP-enriched sites. However, two questions remain to be answered: (i) to which extent is a ChIP-seq...

    Frizzled related proteins (Frps) are secreted proteins structurally similar to frizzled receptors; they bind Wnt via the cysteine-rich domain and antagonize the Wnt signaling pathway. In this study, we have investigated the mechanisms regulating the transcriptional regulation of rat Frp (rFrp)...

    The sensing of oxygen levels and maintenance of oxygen homeostasis is crucial for cells. The hypoxic-sensitive regulation of gene expression allows information about the oxygen status to be converted into appropriate cellular responses. Although there is a core transcriptional pathway, the...

    Background: Protein-DNA interactions play a crucial role in the life of biological organisms in controlling transcription, regulation, as well as DNA recombination and repair. The deep understanding of these processes, which requires the atomic description of the interactions occurring between...

    Transcription factor C/EBPs are involved in the regulation of various cellular responses. Here, it was suggested that C/EBPδ gene was activated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) through transcription factors Sp1, c-Rel, and c-Jun. Assay of the luciferase reporter vectors containing a...

    Background: Enrichment analysis of gene expression data is essential to find functional groups of genes whose interplay can explain experimental observations. Numerous methods have been published that either ignore (set-based) or incorporate (network-based) known interactions between genes....

    It is now well established that the HMG box DNA-binding motif can alter the topology of double-stranded DNA in several ways. Using the spermatid-specific tsHMG as a model protein of the HMG-1/-2 family, we have demonstrated that its expression in E. coli produces an increase in plasmid...

    Using ligation-mediated polymerase chain reaction and in vivo footprinting methods to study the status of DNA–protein interactions at hypersensitive site 3.5 (HS3.5) of the locus control region in K562 and HEL cells, we found that there was protein occupancy in vivo at HS3.5 in both cell...

    We generalize the idea of multiple-stochasticity in chemical reaction systems to gene expression. Using Chemical Langevin Equation approach we investigate how this multiple-stochasticity can influence the overall molecular number fluctuations. We show that the main sources of this...
