The Ini1 subunit of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex suppresses formation of malignant rhabdoid tumors in humans and mice. Transduction of Ini1 into Ini1-deficient tumor-derived cell lines has indicated that Ini1 arrests cell growth, controls chromosomal ploidy, and suppresses tumorigenesis by regulating components of the retinoblastoma (Rb) signaling pathway. Furthermore, conditional inactivation of Ini1 in mouse fibroblasts alters the expression of various Rb-E2F-regulated genes, indicating that endogenous Ini1 levels may control Rb signaling in cells. We have reported previously that loss of one allele of Ini1 in mouse fibroblasts results only in a 15% to 20% reduction in total ...

In the present study, we investigated the involvement of Chmp1 (Chromatin ModifyingProtein 1/Charged Multivesicular body Protein 1) in the development of mousepancreatic acinar tumor cell line. CRL 2151 cell line was transfected with Chmp1/CS2vector to compare growth, morphology and expression of Chmp1, p53 and pp53 (ser37) with control-transfected cells. CRL 2151 cells were treated with all-trans retinoicacid (ATRA) to compare growth, morphology and expression of Chmp1 and p53 withcontrol-treated cells. Strabismus was used as control. Results showed inhibition ofgrowth but no morphological change in transfected cells. Western blot analysis showedthat Chmp1 transfection upregulated the expression of p53, pp53 ...
