26067234 These results reveal a novel mechanism by which MAF1 and Pol III regulate the activity of the CDKN1A-encoding gene transcribed by Pol II.
26030842 MAF1, RNF7 and SETD3 are identified as PCNA-associated proteins in human cells and given this interaction with PCNA, Maf1, RNF7, and SetD3 are potentially involved in DNA replication, DNA repair, or associated processes.
25568945 Studies on Maf1 regulation up until now have focused on posttranslational mechanisms, notably phosphorylation, which controls Maf1 localization (in yeast) and its interaction with the polymerase (in yeast and humans)
25502566 novel role for Maf1 in suppressing both lipid biogenesis and tumor formation; Maf1 elicits these biological responses through its ability to repress genes that that synthesize lipids and regulate biosynthetic capacity.
23673667 SUMOylation has a role in controlling Maf1 and RNA pol III-mediated transcription
22810236 Recovery of RNA polymerase III transcription from the glycerol-repressed state: revisiting the role of protein kinase CK2 in Maf1 phosphoregulation.
21428925 The TOR pathway controls another aspect of Pol III transcription that is closely linked to MAF1, as it depends on the presence of MAF1.
21383183 an important role of CK2-mediated Maf1 phosphorylation in triggering Pol III activation.
20817737 Data relate Pol III transcription inhibition to Maf1 structural changes.
20543138 Maf1, a repressor that binds and inhibits pol III, is phosphorylated in a mTOR-dependent manner both in vitro and in vivo at serine 75, a site that contributes to its function as a transcriptional inhibitor.
