    Thyroid hormone (T3) receptors (T3Rs) are ligand-modulated transcription factors that belong to the nuclear receptor superfamily. Whereas the well-conserved DNA-binding domain and the relatively well-conserved ligand-binding domain in T3Rs have been characterized in detail, limited information...

    Myocardin-related transcription factors (MRTFs) are actin-regulated transcriptional coactivators, which bind G-actin through their N-terminal RPEL domains. In response to signal-induced actin polymerisation and concomitant G-actin depletion, MRTFs accumulate in the nucleus and activate target...

    The PTEN tumour suppressor and pro-apoptotic gene is frequently mutated in human cancers. We show that PTEN transcription is upregulated by Egr-1 after irradiation in wild-type, but not egr-1-/-, mice in vivo. We found that Egr-1 specifically binds to the PTEN 5′ untranslated region, which...
