Disease relevance of SP140

  • One, the nuclear body protein Sp140, was found specifically in all NP cells (n = 12 cell lines tested; P < or = 0.001), and HIV-1 infection induced its partial dispersal from nuclear bodies into cytosolic colocalization with Vif [1].

High impact information on SP140

  • In addition to SP100 homology regions, one LYSP100 cDNA isoform contains a bromodomain and a PHD/TTC domain, which are present in a variety of transcriptional regulatory proteins [2].
  • However, a minority of LYSP100 nuclear dots exactly colocalized with PML and SP100 [2].
  • Although LYSP100 is expressed only in lymphoid cells, LANDs could be visualized in HeLa cells by transfection of a LYSP100 cDNA [2].
  • The level of SP140 mRNA in myeloid precursor cell lines HL60 and NB4 markedly increased in response to chemically induced cellular differentiation [3].
