Regulatory relationships of MCTS1

  • Forced expression of MCT-1 significantly increases the number of DNA damage-induced foci involving gamma-H2AX and 53BP1 [7].
  • The phosphorylation of genomic stabilizers H2AX and NBS1 are enhanced in MCT-1-overexpressing cells [7].

Other interactions of MCTS1

  • This relationship between MCT-1 and cyclin H implied a potential role for MCT-1 in cell cycle regulation [4].
  • Constitutive expression of MCT-1 results in a strong proliferative signal and is associated with deregulation of protein kinase-mediated G1/S phase checkpoints [5].
  • Knockdown of endogenous MCT-1 using an siRNA approach attenuates the H2AX phosphorylation and the G1/S checkpoint defect [7].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of MCTS1

  • Using mobility shift assays with a 26-mer oligonucleotide, which contains this fragment and its flanking regions, we demonstrated the presence of sequence-specific DNA-binding protein in both Jurkat and Hela nuclear extracts that we designated as LMBF (for lymphoid MCT-1 binding factor) [6].
  • MCT-1 maximal velocity increased in the rHuEPO group (P < 0.05), reaching higher values than in the placebo group (P < 0.05) after treatment [15].
  • Development of MCTS technique for 3-PM liquid scintillation counting [16].
