High impact information on ABTB1

  • Flow cytometry suggested that over-expression of BPOZ inhibited progression of the cell cycle at the G(1)/S transition [1].
  • Anti-sense oligonucleotides for BPOZ or EGR2 effectively inhibited their expression, and cell growth was accelerated [1].
  • Colony-formation assays using plasmid clones designed to express each gene indicated that EGR2 and BPOZ were able to suppress growth of cancer cells significantly; in particular, cancer-cell lines stably expressing BPOZ grew more slowly than control cells containing mock vector [1].
  • Sequence pattern analysis shows that BPOZ contains an N-terminal ankyrin repeat, a bipartite nuclear localization signal and two BTB/POZ domains [2].
  • Using semiquantitative RT-PCR, the BPOZ transcript was found to be ubiquitously expressed in all fetal tissues examined (heart, brain, liver, and kidney) suggesting that BPOZ is involved in basic cellular function [2].
