We have cloned proteins that interact with the nuclear orphan receptor RZR beta using the yeast two-hybrid system. We identified, amongst a number of other genes, the nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK)-2 also known as Nm23-2, c-myc regulatory factor PuF and differentiation inhibitory factor, RZR beta specifically interacts with Nm23-2 but not with the closely related tumor metastasis suppressor candidate gene product Nm23-1. In contrast ROR alpha interacts with both Nm23 proteins. These findings were corroborated by in vitro interaction assays based on GST-pulldown experiments. With-n-myc we propose a candidate gene regulated by ROR alpha/RZR beta and Nm23, based on the finding that the respective DNA binding sites in the first intron are conserved in several mammalian species.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to SciCrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
