Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Goat Affinity Purified E B IF
The Bmi-1 oncogene induces telomerase activity and immortalizes human mammary epithelial cells. Bmi-1 extends the replicative life span of human fibroblasts by suppressing the p16-dependent senescence pathway. Polycomb group (PcG) genes are involved in the maintenance of cellular memory through epigenetic chromatin modifications. Recent studies have implicated a role for PcG genes in the self-renewal of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), a process in which cellular memory is maintained through cell division. Among the PcG genes, Bmi-1 plays a central role in the inheritance of stemness, and its forced expression promotes HSC self-renewal. These findings highlight the importance of epigenetic regulation in HSC self-renewal and identify PcG genes as potential targets for therapeutic HSC manipulation. Involved in maintaining the transcriptionally repressive state of genes. Modifies chromatin, rendering it heritably changed in its expressibility.
