Disease relevance of MYST4


Psychiatry related information on MYST4

  • Currently prominent models of narcissism (e.g., Morf and Rhodewalt, 2001) primarily explain narcissists' self-defeating behaviors in terms of conscious cognitive and affective processes [4].
  • No significant differences were found between conversion disorder patients and controls in PHLL, PHLR, PLRP, and MORF [5].

High impact information on MYST4


Biological context of MYST4

  • Variant MYST4-CBP gene fusion in a t(10;16) acute myeloid leukaemia [9].
  • Moreover, endogenous MORF is required for transcriptional activation by Runx2 [10].
  • Genomic analyses revealed that the breaks were close to Alu elements in intron 16 of MORF and intron 2 of CBP and that duplications had occurred near the breakpoints [1].
  • Here, we report a new case with the MORF-CREBBP fusion in an 84-year-old patient diagnosed with AML M5b, in which the t(10;16)(q22;p13) was the only cytogenetic aberration [11].
  • In conclusion, a bivalent MORF was easily synthesized by dimerization of a monovalent MORF [12].

Anatomical context of MYST4

  • The present study reports a method to construct a chimera of phosphorodiamidate morpholino nucleobase oligomer (MORF) covalently conjugated to a peptide containing a cell membrane transduction Tat peptide and an N(2)S(2) chelator for technetium-99m ((99m)Tc) radiolabeling (N(2)S(2)-Tat-MORF) [13].

Associations of MYST4 with chemical compounds


Other interactions of MYST4

  • The monocytic leukemia zinc finger protein MOZ and its homologue MORF have been implicated in leukemogenesis [10].
  • These methods are useful not only for functional characterization of MOZ, MORF, PCAF, and other HATs, but also for preparation of HAT proteins to screen compound libraries and obtain inhibitors with potential therapeutic value [15].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of MYST4

  • By surface plasmon resonance at room temperature, the association rate constant for hybridization of the 18-mer MORF to its complementary oligomer (cMORF) was equivalent to that of DNAs and PNAs of comparable length [16].
  • In each case, the labeled MORFs showed one sharp peak in HPLC that shifted completely to earlier retention times following addition of a polymer conjugated with the complementary MORF [17].
