A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Mammalian cells express two homologs of the SWI2 subunit of the SWI/SNF chromatin-remodeling complex called BRG1 and BRM. Whether the SWI/SNF complexes formed by these two subunits perform identical or different functions remains an important question. In this report, we show concomitant down-regulation of BRG1 and BRM in six human tumor cell lines. This down-regulation occurs at the level of mRNA abundance. We tested whether BRM could affect aberrant cellular functions attributed to BRG1 in tumor cell lines. By transient transfection, we found that BRM can restore RB-mediated cell cycle arrest, induce expression of CD44 protein and suppress Cyclin A expression. Therefore, BRM may be consistently down-regulated with BRG1 during neoplastic progression because they share some redundant functions. However, assorted tissues from BRM null/BRG1-positive mice lack CD44 expression, suggesting that BRM-containing SWI/SNF complexes regulate expression of this gene under physiological conditions. Our studies further define the mechanism by which chromatin-remodeling complexes participate in RB-mediated cell cycle arrest and provide additional novel evidence that the functions of SWI/SNF complexes containing BRG1 or BRM are not completely interchangeable.
