The transcriptional control circuitry in eukaryotic cells is complex and is orchestrated by combinatorially acting transcription factors. Forkhead transcription factors often function in concert with heterotypic transcription factors to specify distinct transcriptional programs. Here, we demonstrate that FOXK2 participates in combinatorial transcriptional control with the AP-1 transcription factor. FOXK2 binding regions are widespread throughout the genome and are often coassociated with AP-1 bi ...[more]
Project description:Chromatin immunoprecipitation of FOXK2 (tagged with Flag and His tags) in U2OS cells detected by SOLiD sequencing. ***Correction March 2014: The sample “FOXK2_Dox_treated” has been renamed, it was originally named “FOXK2_rep2”. A new sample “FOXK2_rep2” has been added, with new files. It has come to our attention that one of the FOXK2 ChIP-seq replicates 'FOXK2_rep2' that we used in our paper recent paper (Ji, Z., Donaldson, I.J., Liu, J., Hayes, A., Zeef, L.A.H. and Sharrocks, A.D. (2012) The forkhead transcription factor FOXK2 promotes AP-1-mediated transcriptional regulation. Mol. Cell. Biol. 32, 385-398. doi:10.1128/MCB.05504-11) was incorrect. The replicate was actually treated with doxorubicin prior to ChIP-seq analysis resulting in the loss of many FOXK2 binding events.***
Project description:Expression profiling was done of exposure to phorbol myristate acetate -PMA and FOXK2 depletion by siRNA transfection. This was done on the human osteosarcoma U2OS cell line which stably expresses FOXK2. PMA is an inducer of AP1 activity.
Project description:Clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is one of the most common urological malignant neoplasms. In addition, ccRCC is a highly aggressive cancer with a concomitant poor prognosis. Forkhead box K2 (FOXK2) has been reported to involve in many molecular mechanisms.However, little is known about the role FOXK2 plays in clear-cell renal cell carcinoma. Our previous study showed that FOXK2 mRNA and protein expression were decreased in human ccRCC tissues and suppressed the proliferation of ccRCC cells both in vitro and in vivo. We used microarrays (Affymetrix HTA2.0 Array) to detail the differentially expressed genes after overexpression of FOXK2, and aim to find potential one or more target gene/genes of FOXK2 Overall design: We conducted the genome-wide transcriptome profiling of human ccRCC cell line 769-P after transfection with pLV-EGFP-FOXK2 (overexpression of FOXK2) and plv-EGFP empty vector (control)
