    ..These findings establish Aph2 as a critical in vivo regulator of cardiac function and reveal roles for protein palmitoylation in the development of other organs including eyes. ..

  3. Zhu Y, Wang G, Cingoz O, Goff S. NP220 mediates silencing of unintegrated retroviral DNA. Nature. 2018;564:278-282 pubmed publisher
    ..Knockout of NP220 accelerates the replication of retroviruses. These experiments identify the molecular machinery that silences extrachromosomal retroviral DNA. ..

    ..These data suggest that over both short- and long-term evolutionary timescales, Steamer-like retrotransposons, much like retroviruses, can move between organisms and integrate new copies into new host genomes. ..

    ..Murine restriction of MLV and human cellular restriction of HIV-1 are fundamentally different. While murine restriction of MLV occurs post integration, human restriction of HIV-1 occurs before integration. ..

    ..Additionally, we found that residue K779 was critical for Trim28-mediated silencing of M-MLV in embryonic cells. ..

    ..Our findings reveal a critical role for CDKs in the translation of IFN-?. ..
  8. Erazo A, Goff S. Nuclear matrix protein Matrin 3 is a regulator of ZAP-mediated retroviral restriction. Retrovirology. 2015;12:57 pubmed publisher
    ..Suppressing Matrin 3 powers a heightened and broader ZAP restriction of HIV-1 gene expression. This study suggests that this ZAP regulatory mechanism is shared with additional nuclear matrix proteins. ..
  9. Wang G, Goff S. Transcriptional Silencing of Moloney Murine Leukemia Virus in Human Embryonic Carcinoma Cells. J Virol. 2017;91: pubmed publisher
    ..The findings reveal novel features of human EC gene regulation not present in their murine counterparts. ..

    ..The data show that histone loading onto unintegrated DNAs occurs very rapidly after nuclear entry and does not require prior establishment of an integrated provirus. ..

    ..These findings suggest that the stem cell state is established not only by an unusual transcriptional profile but also by unusual regulation of protein levels through the proteasomal degradation pathway. ..
