Trends Mol Med 16:97-106. 2010..Here, we discuss the genetics and biology of the MICA gene and its products, and their importance in disease...
- High-throughput sequencing identifies STAT3 as the DNA-associated factor for p53-NF-kappaB-complex-dependent gene expression in human heart failureMun Kit Choy
Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge, Addenbrooke s Centre for Clinical Investigation, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 0QQ, UK
Genome Med 2:37. 2010..CONCLUSIONS : Our results uncover a mechanism by which transcription factors cooperate in a multi-molecular complex at a cis-regulatory element to control gene expression...

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Cambridge, Addenbrooke s Centre for Clinical Investigation, Level 6, Hills Rd, Cambridge, CB2 0QQ UK
Circulation 124:2411-22. 2011..A consistent profile of gene expression changes in end-stage cardiomyopathy led us to hypothesize that distinct global patterns of the epigenome may also exist...
- PKB/Akt activation inhibits p53-mediated HIF1A degradation that is independent of MDM2Mun Kit Choy
Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge, Addenbrooke s Hospital, Cambridge CB2 20QQ, UK
J Cell Physiol 222:635-9. 2010..In summary, we propose that p53-induced HIF1A degradation is not exclusively MDM2-mediated, but reversible by PKB/Akt phosphorylation...
