Abstract from PubMed:
ATRX is an X-linked gene of the SWI/SNF family, mutations in which cause syndromal mental retardation and downregulation of Î±-globin expression. Here we show that ATRX binds to tandem repeat (TR) sequences in both telomeres and euchromatin. Genes associated with these TRs can be dysregulated when ATRX is mutated, and the change in expression is determined by the size of the TR, producing skewed allelic expression. This reveals the characteristics of the affected genes, explains the variable phenotypes seen with identical ATRX mutations, and illustrates a new mechanism underlying variable penetrance. Many of the TRs are G rich and predicted to form non-B DNA structures (including G-quadruplex) in vivo. We show that ATRX binds G-quadruplex structures in vitro, suggesting a mechanism by which ATRX may play a role in various nuclear processes and how this is perturbed when ATRX is mutated.
Typical analysis workflows my generate dozens or even hundreds of outputs.
To condense the amount of information into more easily digestible portions,
GeneProf will, by default, only display the experiments input data (here: input data)
and a selection of the most important outputs (here: main results).
You can drill down into the details of the analysis via the workflow designer or
you can display other intermediate outputs here.
This is a schematic representation of the analysis workflow used in this experiment. For more details (parameters, etc.) use the fully-featured workflow designer.
