Nuclear myosin 1c (NM1) associates with RNA polymerases and is a partner in the chromatin remodeling complex B-WICH. This complex, which also contains WSTF and SNF2h proteins, is involved in transcriptional regulation. We report herein that papillomavirus protein E2 binds to NM1 and co-precipitates with the WSTF and SNF2h proteins. Our data suggest that E2 associates with the cellular B-WICH complex through binding to NM1. E2 and NM1 associate via their N-terminal domains and this interaction is ATP dependent. The cellular multifunctional protein Brd4 and beta-actin are also present in the NM1-E2 complex. NM1 downregulation by siRNA increases the replication of the BPV1 and HPV5 genomes but does not affect HPV18 genome replication. These results suggest that the B-WICH complex may play a role in the papillomavirus life cycle through NM1 and E2 protein interaction.

The smaller subunits of MYOSINS that bind near the head groups of MYOSIN HEAVY CHAINS. The myosin light chains have a molecular weight of about 20 KDa and there are usually one essential and one regulatory pair of light chains associated with each heavy chain. Many myosin light chains that bind calcium are considered "calmodulin-like" proteins.
A subclass of myosin found in ACANTHAMOEBA. It is a non-filamentous myosin containing a single 180-kDa myosin heavy chain.
A CALCIUM and CALMODULIN-dependent serine/threonine protein phosphatase that is composed of the calcineurin A catalytic subunit and the calcineurin B regulatory subunit. Calcineurin has been shown to dephosphorylate a number of phosphoproteins including HISTONES; MYOSIN LIGHT CHAIN; and the regulatory subunits of CAMP-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASES. It is involved in the regulation of signal transduction and is the target of an important class of immunophilin-immunosuppressive drug complexes.
A nuclear RNA-protein complex that plays a role in RNA processing. In the nucleoplasm, the U2 snRNP along with other small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (U1, U4-U6, and U5) assemble into SPLICEOSOMES that remove introns from pre-mRNA by splicing. The U2 snRNA forms base pairs with conserved sequence motifs at the branch point, which associates with a heat- and RNAase-sensitive factor in an early step of splicing.
A DNA-binding orphan nuclear receptor that negatively regulates expression of ARNTL TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS and plays a role as a regulatory component of the circadian clock system. The Nr1d1 nuclear receptor expression is cyclically-regulated by a feedback loop involving its positive regulation by CLOCK PROTEIN; BMAL1 PROTEIN heterodimers and its negative regulation by CRYPTOCHROME and PERIOD PROTEINS.
