    • The CHR Promoter Element Controls Cell Cycle-Dependent Gene Transcription and Binds the DREAM and MMB Complexes 

      Müller, Gerd A.; Quaas, Marianne; Schümann, Michael; Krause, Eberhard; Padi, Megha; Fischer, Martin; Litovchick, Larisa; DeCaprio, James A.; Engeland, Kurt (Oxford University Press, 2011)
      Cell cycle-dependent gene expression is often controlled on the transcriptional level. Genes like \(cyclin B, CDC2\) and \(CDC25C\) are regulated by cell cycle-dependent element (CDE) and cell cycle genes homology region ...
    • Does a New Polyomavirus Contribute to Merkel Cell Carcinoma? 

      Garneski, Kelly M; DeCaprio, James A.; Nghiem, Paul (BioMed Central, 2008)
      A new technique designed to hunt for non-human transcripts has identified a novel SV40-like virus present in the majority of Merkel cell carcinomas. Here we examine what it will take to determine whether or not this virus ...
    • Identification of FAM111A as an SV40 Host Range Restriction and Adenovirus Helper Factor 

      Fine, Debrah A.; Rozenblatt-Rosen, Orit; Padi, Megha; Korkhin, Anna; James, Robert L.; Adelmant, Guillaume; Yoon, Rosa; Guo, Luxuan; Berrios, Christian Jose; Zhang, Ying; Calderwood, Michael A.; Velmurgan, Soundarapandian; Cheng, Jingwei; Marto, Jarrod; Hill, David E.; Cusick, Michael; Vidal, Marc; Florens, Laurence; Washburn, Michael P.; Litovchick, Larisa; DeCaprio, James A. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      The small genome of polyomaviruses encodes a limited number of proteins that are highly dependent on interactions with host cell proteins for efficient viral replication. The SV40 large T antigen (LT) contains several ...
    • Integration of TP53, DREAM, MMB-FOXM1 and RB-E2F target gene analyses identifies cell cycle gene regulatory networks 

      Fischer, Martin; Grossmann, Patrick; Padi, Megha; DeCaprio, James A. (Oxford University Press, 2016)
      Cell cycle (CC) and TP53 regulatory networks are frequently deregulated in cancer. While numerous genome-wide studies of TP53 and CC-regulated genes have been performed, significant variation between studies has made it ...
    • Interpreting Cancer Genomes Using Systematic Host Perturbations by Tumour Virus Proteins 

      Rozenblatt-Rosen, Orit; Deo, Rahul C.; Dricot, Amélie; Askenazi, Manor; Tavares, Maria; Abderazzaq, Fieda; Byrdsong, Danielle; Correll, Mick; Fan, Changyu; Feltkamp, Mariet C.; Franchi, Rachel; Garg, Brijesh K.; Gulbahce, Natali; Hao, Tong; Korkhin, Anna; Litovchick, Larisa; Mar, Jessica C.; Pak, Theodore R.; Rabello, Sabrina; Rubio, Renee; Shen, Yun; Tasan, Murat; Wanamaker, Shelly; Roecklein-Canfield, Jennifer; Johannsen, Eric; Barabási, Albert-László; Padi, Megha; Adelmant, Guillaume; Calderwood, Michael A; Rolland, Thomas; Grace, Miranda; Pevzner, Samuel; Carvunis, Anne-Ruxandra; Chen, Alyce Aura; Cheng, Jingwei; Duarte, Melissa; Ficarro, Scott; Holthaus, Amy Marie; James, Robert; Singh, Saurav; Spangle, Jennifer Marie; Webber, James T.; Beroukhim, Rameen; Kieff, Elliott D.; Cusick, Michael; Hill, David E.; Munger, Karl; Marto, Jarrod; Quackenbush, John; Roth, Frederick Phillip; DeCaprio, James A.; Vidal, Marc (Nature Publishing Group, 2012)
      Genotypic differences greatly influence susceptibility and resistance to disease. Understanding genotype-phenotype relationships requires that phenotypes be viewed as manifestations of network properties, rather than simply ...
    • Merkel Cell Polyomavirus Exhibits Dominant Control of the Tumor Genome and Transcriptome in Virus-Associated Merkel Cell Carcinoma 

      Starrett, Gabriel J.; Marcelus, Christina; Cantalupo, Paul G.; Katz, Joshua P.; Cheng, Jingwei; Akagi, Keiko; Thakuria, Manisha; Rabinowits, Guilherme; Wang, Linda C.; Symer, David E.; Pipas, James M.; Harris, Reuben S.; DeCaprio, James A. (American Society for Microbiology, 2017)
      ABSTRACT Merkel cell polyomavirus is the primary etiological agent of the aggressive skin cancer Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC). Recent studies have revealed that UV radiation is the primary mechanism for somatic mutagenesis ...
    • Merkel Cell Polyomavirus Small T Antigen Promotes Pro-Glycolytic Metabolic Perturbations Required for Transformation 

      Berrios, Christian; Padi, Megha; Keibler, Mark A.; Park, Donglim Esther; Molla, Vadim; Cheng, Jingwei; Lee, Soo Mi; Stephanopoulos, Gregory; Quackenbush, John; DeCaprio, James A. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) is an etiological agent of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), a highly aggressive skin cancer. The MCPyV small tumor antigen (ST) is required for maintenance of MCC and can transform normal cells. ...
    • Proteomic Landscape of Tissue-Specific Cyclin E Functions in Vivo 

      Odajima, Junko; Saini, Siddharth; Jung, Piotr; Ndassa-Colday, Yasmine; Ficaro, Scott; Geng, Yan; Marco, Eugenio; Michowski, Wojciech; Wang, Yaoyu E.; DeCaprio, James A.; Litovchick, Larisa; Marto, Jarrod; Sicinski, Piotr (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      E-type cyclins (cyclins E1 and E2) are components of the cell cycle machinery that has been conserved from yeast to humans. The major function of E-type cyclins is to drive cell division. It is unknown whether in addition ...
    • Viral Perturbations of Host Networks Reflect Disease Etiology 

      Gulbahce, Natali; Yan, Han; Dricot, Amélie; Padi, Megha; Byrdsong, Danielle; Franchi, Rachel; Lee, Deok-Sun; Rozenblatt-Rosen, Orit; Mar, Jessica C.; Calderwood, Michael A; Baldwin, Amy; Zhao, Bo; Santhanam, Balaji; Braun, Pascal; Simonis, Nicolas; Huh, Kyung-Won; Hellner, Karin; Grace, Miranda; Chen, Alyce Aura; Rubio, Renee; Marto, Jarrod; Christakis, Nicholas Alexander; Kieff, Elliott D.; Roth, Frederick Phillip; Roecklein-Canfield, Jennifer; DeCaprio, James A.; Cusick, Michael; Quackenbush, John; Hill, David E.; Münger, Karl; Vidal, Marc; Barabási, Albert-László (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Many human diseases, arising from mutations of disease susceptibility genes (genetic diseases), are also associated with viral infections (virally implicated diseases), either in a directly causal manner or by indirect ...
