  1. Yamada K, Tsuchiya M, Mishima K, Shimoyama M. p33, an endogenous target protein for arginine-specific ADP-ribosyltransferase in chicken polymorphonuclear leukocytes, is highly homologous to mim-1 protein (myb-induced myeloid protein-1). FEBS Lett. 1992;311:203-5 pubmed
    We have determined the partial amino acid sequence of p33, an endogenous substrate protein for arginine-specific ADP-ribosyltransferase in chicken polymorphonuclear leukocytes (heterophils), and found that the sequence was completely ..

    ..We conclude that mim-1 is a cellular gene that is directly regulated by the product of the v-myb oncogene...

    ..Cell cycle analyses show that twice as many HSCs from c-Myb(M303V/M303V) animals are actively cycling. Thus c-Myb, through interaction with p300, controls the proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. ..
