  • Title: 2 Inactive 4 Destruction – Genetic Quality Control in Oocytes by p63
  • Abstract: p63 is a member of the family of the tumor suppressor p53. It is highly expressed in oocytes where it serves as a quality control factor. Since oocytes in humans are arrested in prophase of meiosis I for decades, the activity of the pro-apoptotic function of p63 must be very tightly regulated. We have shown that the protein is expressed in oocytes as an inactive dimer with a closed conformation. The protein is kept in this inactive form through interaction between the N- and the C-terminal domains that in isolation are unfolded but in the dimer form a six stranded beta-sheet. This conformation is formed co-translationally and constitutes a kinetically trapped meta-stable state. Detection of DNA double strand breaks results in the activation of kinases that activate p63 leading to the formation of the active tetrameric conformation. We have identified the phosphorylation sites, kinases and mechanism of activation.

Sing Mozart’s Requiem with the QC Choral Society!

Mozart’s Requiem is a timeless classic. 1001 Voices (music by Frank London, libretto by Judith Sloan and visuals by Warren Lehrer), reflects ideas of transformation, migration and finding home while celebrating the diversity of the borough of Queens. Britten’s War Requiem is a reflection and warning on the senselessness of war. Together these three works emphasize a theme of unity, and focus on bringing people together through music.

Auditions consist of basic singing skills (no preparation necessary) and will take place on the following Wednesdays in rm. 246 of the Music Building:

August 23rd, 6-8pm
August 30th, 6-7:15pm
September 6th, 6-7:15pm
September 13th, 6-7:15pm

To schedule an audition or for further information, contact our Music Director, Prof. James John, at 718-997-3818 or  

The Society welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds to share the joys of choral singing in a friendly atmosphere. Through its affiliation with the Aaron Copland School of Music, the Society offers students, faculty, and staff of Queens College, as well as members of the surrounding community, the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterpieces from all musical eras. Faculty, staff and students from any CUNY college are invited to audition!
