26673727 findings reveal a new mode of interaction between a TPR repeat domain of histone chaperone sNASP and an evolutionarily conserved peptide motif found in canonical H3 and in all histone H3 variants
25669170 Our research demonstrates that knockdown of tNASP effectively inhibits the proliferation and causes G1 phase arrest through ERK/MAPK signal pathway.
25615412 These results provide evidence that tNASP is ubiquitously produced in various types of human tissues and promotes in vitro nucleosome assembly with H3 variant specificity.
24951090 NASP family Proteins are highly conserved throughout the eukaryotes and posses four TPR motifs. It was likely present in the last common ancestor of eukaryotes possibly representing an important innovation regarding H3/H4 transport mechanism. Different TPR motifs in NASP have evolved at different rates with TPR1/4 evolving faster than TPR2/3.
23364796 HIV-1 Tat upregulates the expression of nuclear autoantigenic sperm protein (NASP) in Jurkat cells
22968912 Studies indicate that histone chalerones nucleoplasmin (NPM2/NPM3) preferentially associated with histones H2A-H2B in the egg and the nuclear autoantigenic sperm protein (NASP) families.
22944692 HIV-1 Tat upregulates the expression of nuclear autoantigenic sperm protein (NASP) in Jurkat cells
22195965 The insights into NASP function and the existence of a tunable reservoir in mammalian cells demonstrate that contingency is integrated into the histone supply chain to respond to unexpected changes in demand.
22194605 an increase of miR-29a, and hence decrease of Nasp, may contribute to inhibit cell proliferation during postnatal organ development.
21965532 sNASP interacts with linker and core histones through distinct structural domains.
21496299 tNASP is critical for the survival of prostate cancer cells; targeting tNASP expression can lead to a new approach for prostate cancer treatment.
20167597 A deletion analysis of sNASP revealed that the central region, amino acid residues 26-325, of sNASP is responsible for nucleosome assembly in vitro.
20164540 NASP and RCAS1 proteins were more frequently expressed in ovarian cancer tissues than with normal ovarian tissue and serous cystadenomas and MRE11 was less frequently expressed
19439102 NASP belongs to a network of genes and gene functions that are critical for cell survival
18782834 NASP forms distinct, high specificity complexes with histones H3 and H4.
16728391 NASP and the linker histones are key players in the assembly of chromatin after DNA replication
