Methylation by CARM1 influences the effect of HuR in regulating mRNA turnover. (A and B) RNA was prepared from cells described in Figure 1A (A) and 1D (B) to assess the mRNA levels of cyclin A, cyclin B1, c-fos, SIRT1, p16, and β-tublin by real-time qPCR against GAPDH. (C and D) Cells described in Figure 1A and 1D were exposed to actinomycin D (2 μg/ml), whereupon the cellular RNA was isolated at times indicated. Real-time qPCR against GAPDH was performed to assess the half-lives of cyclin A, cyclin B1, c-fos, SIRT1, p16, and β-tublin mRNA, as described in Methods. The real-time qPCR data are represented as means ± SEM from 3 independent experiments. The statistic significance was analyzed by Student’s t test.
