    K M Yao
    Genetics Institute, Inc, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02140, USA
    J Biol Chem 272:19827-36. 1997
    ..These transcripts were shown by RNase protection assay to be differentially expressed in different tissues. Alternative splicing within the winged helix DNA binding domain might result in modulation of DNA binding specificity...

    M K Thomas
    Laboratory of Molecular Endocrinology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Boston, Massachusetts 02114, USA
    Mol Cell Biol 19:8492-504. 1999
    ..Bridge-1, by utilizing its PDZ-like domain to interact with E12, may provide a new mechanism for the coactivation and regulation of transcription of the insulin gene...
  3. pmc Organizational analysis of elav gene and functional analysis of ELAV protein of Drosophila melanogaster and Drosophila virilis
    K M Yao
    Department of Biology, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts 02254 9110
    Mol Cell Biol 11:2994-3000. 1991
    ..Thus, the divergence of the amino-terminal region of the ELAV protein reflects lowered functional constraint rather than species-specific functional specification...
  4. ncbi Neural specificity of elav expression: defining a Drosophila promoter for directing expression to the nervous system
    K M Yao
    Department of Biology, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA 02254 9110
    J Neurochem 63:41-51. 1994
    ..A 3.5-kb promoter fragment encompassing this region was designed for targeting gene expression specifically to the nervous system and would be a useful tool for the analysis of nervous system function...
  5. ncbi Over-expression of FoxM1 stimulates cyclin B1 expression
    T W Leung
    Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, University of Hong Kong, China
    FEBS Lett 507:59-66. 2001
    ..Transient reporter assays in the dox-inducible lines and upon co-transfection with a constitutive FoxM1 expression plasmid suggest that FoxM1 can activate the cyclin B1 promoter...
