TET-family dioxygenases, immune responses and cancer – Anjana Rao, La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology

September 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In 2009, our lab reported that enzymes of the TET (Ten-Eleven Translocation) family were a new class of epigenetic regulators that altered the modification status of cytosine bases in DNA. The three mammalian TET enzymes – TET1, TET2 and TET3 – successively oxidize the methyl group of 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to yield 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and 5-carboxylcytosine (5caC). These modified cytosine bases (together termed oxidized methylcytosines, oxi-mC) facilitate DNA demethylation and are also novel epigenetic marks. DNA methylation has long…

‘Activation of transcription factor Nrf2 as a strategy to restore the cellular redox and protein homeostasis’ – Professor Albena Dinkova-Kostova,Jacqui Wood Cancer Centre, Division of Cellular Medicine, University of Dundee

Disrupted redox and protein homeostasis and chronic inflammation are characteristic features of most human pathologies. The transcription factor Nrf2 regulates the expression of large networks of genes encoding proteins that provide powerful and long-lasting protection against damage by oxidants and pro-inflammatory agents. Most pharmacological activators of Nrf2 (termed inducers) are electrophiles that target discreet highly reactive sensor cysteines within Kelch-like ECH-associated protein 1 (Keap1), the main negative regulator of Nrf2, impairing the repressor function of Keap1, and allowing for Nrf2…

Dear Postdocs from the south side of the city! Has your experiment not worked and you would like to forget about it? Has your experiment worked brilliantly and you would like to celebrate? Or are you just eager to meet some postdocs outside of your own lab? Whatever your reason, come and join the postdocs from the Addenbrooke's campus for a pub night. Have a drink, relax, chat and make new friends. The pub we will be going to is…

Transcriptional dependencies in cancer – Christopher Vakoc, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

October 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A reprogrammed transcriptional state is required for malignant transformation, a process that can render cancer cells addicted to specific transcriptional regulators. Our research focuses on identifying transcriptional addictions in cancer using genetic screens, followed by a deep investigation of underlying mechanisms. Over several years, our studies have reinforced the role of sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factors as the premier transcriptional addictions deserving of therapeutic intervention, such as MYB in acute myeloid leukemia and POU2F3 in small cell lung cancer. However,…
