研究领域(Research Area

真核基因的转录表达是通过一系列复杂而精致的机制来完成的。近年来在转录延伸及其调控机制研究上的重大突破得益于正性转录延伸因子b (P-TEFb)的发现及其功能的研究。P-TEFb是由CDK9及其调节亚基CyclinT组成的具有激酶活性的基本转录延伸因子。是调控真核基因转录由起始状态进入延伸阶段的必需因子,参与绝大多数基因的转录表达。同时,P-TEFb也是人类艾滋病毒转录复制的必需因子之一。新近报道表明P-TEFb活性异常与心肌肥大有直接的关系、与肿瘤的发生和发展也有密切的关系。因此,P-TEFb活性调控分子机制机制的研究及其重要,近年已成为该研究领域的主要热点。我们的主要研究目标是揭示P-TEFb)活性调控的分子机制,并寻找调控其活性的细胞信号途径,及其对HIV复制、心肌肥大和肿瘤细胞生长与分化的影响。

Consisting of Cdk9 and cycling T, P-TEFb plays key roles both in the expression of most cellular genes and in pathogenesis, such as HIV replication, cardiac hypertrophy and carcinogenesis. Since 2002, we have identified both positive and negative regulators that can alternately interact with P-TEFb to control its activity and affect transcription. Recent study revealed that PP2B and PP1 could cooperatively disrupt inactive complex to release P-TEFb for transcription in response to Ca2+ signaling. Currently, we are performing structure-function analyses of the P-TEFb-containing complexes to study the mechanisms by which P-TEFb activity can be positively modulated. The second direction is revealing the signal and molecular mechanism of regulating the recruitment of active P-TEFb complex. We are also trying to identify more signaling pathways that control the formation and disruption of the P-TEFb complexes and the involvement of these pathways in cell growth/differentiation, HIV replication and other diseases.
