- Human NM23/nucleoside diphosphate kinase regulates gene expression through DNA binding to nuclease-hypersensitive transcriptional elementsE H Postel
Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, New Jersey 08544, USA
J Bioenerg Biomembr 32:277-84. 2000..These data support a model in which NM23/NDP kinase modulates gene expression through DNA binding and subsequent structural transactions...
- NM23-NDP kinaseE H Postel
Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, NJ 08540, USA
Int J Biochem Cell Biol 30:1291-5. 1998..The mechanism whereby NM23 regulates gene expression is proposed to entail DNA-binding and subsequent alterations in promoter DNA structure. Accordingly, NM23 has the potential to become a useful reagent for gene manipulations...

- Escherichia coli nucleoside diphosphate kinase is a uracil-processing DNA repair nucleaseEdith H Postel
Department of Molecular Biology, Lewis Thomas Laboratory, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:13247-52. 2003..All three of these activities, as well as the nucleoside-diphosphate kinase, reside in the same protein. Based on these findings, we propose an editing function for eNDK as a mechanism by which the enzyme prevents mutations in DNA...

Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, NJ 08540
Science 261:478-80. 1993..These results provide a link between nm23 and the c-myc oncogene and suggest that the nm23 protein can function in vitro in the transcriptional regulation of c-myc expression...
- Interactions between Escherichia coli nucleoside-diphosphate kinase and DNAMikhail N Levit
Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544 1014, USA
J Biol Chem 277:5163-7. 2002..The conservation of the DNA binding and DNA cleavage activities between human and bacterial NDP kinases argues strongly for the hypothesis that these activities play an essential role in NDP kinase function in vivo...

Laboratory of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Department of Pediatrics, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, One Robert Wood Johnson Place, New Brunswick, NJ 08903 0019, USA
J Biol Chem 281:32131-9. 2006..These findings represent the first example of Ung interacting with another E. coli protein and also lend support to the recently discovered role of nucleoside-diphosphate kinases as regulatory components of multiprotein complexes...
- NM23-H2, an estrogen receptor beta-associated protein, shows diminished expression with progression of atherosclerosisKatey Rayner
University of Ottawa Heart Institute, Ottawa, ON, Canada
Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 292:R743-50. 2007..In that the abundance of NM23-H2 diminishes with both the advancement of atherosclerosis and inflammation, this ERbeta-associated protein may play an important role in mediating the vasculoprotective effects of estrogens...
