Zaffran, S.  et al. 2002

The beta 3 tubulin gene is a direct target of bagpipe and biniou in the visceral mesoderm of Drosophila

Previous studies have identified the NK homeobox gene bagpipe and the FoxF fork head domain gene biniou as essential regulators of visceral mesoderm development in Drosophila. Here we present...

Abnormal expression of the KLF8 (ZNF741) gene in a female patient with an X;autosome translocation t(X;21)(p11.2;q22.3) and non-syndromic mental retardation

Non-syndromic X linked mental retardation (MRX) is a heterogeneous group of conditions in which all patients have mental retardation as the only constant phenotypic feature. We have identified a...

Moncla, A.  et al. 2002

Polymorphisms in the C-terminal domain of MECP2 in mentally handicapped boys: implications for genetic counselling

Numerous recent reports have proposed that mutations in the C-terminal domain of the MECP2 gene could be a frequent cause of mental retardation in males. We have identified two mutations in this...

Zaffran, S.  et al. 2001

biniou (FoxF), a central component in a regulatory network controlling visceral mesoderm development and midgut morphogenesis in Drosophila

The subdivision of the lateral mesoderm into a visceral (splanchnic) and a somatic layer is a crucial event during early mesoderm development in both arthropod and vertebrate embryos. In Drosophila,...

Bartoli, M.  et al. 2001

Interactions of the rapsyn RING-H2 domain with dystroglycan

Rapsyn, a peripheral membrane protein of skeletal muscle, is necessary for the formation of the highly organized structure of the vertebrate neuromuscular junction. For mice lacking rapsyn, there is a...

Villard, L.  et al. 2001

Segregation of a totally skewed pattern of X chromosome inactivation in four familial cases of Rett syndrome without MECP2 mutation: implications for the disease

BACKGROUND: Rett syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting only girls; 99.5% of Rett syndrome cases are sporadic, although several familial cases have been reported. Mutations in the MECP2...

Gentil, BJ.  et al. 2001

The giant protein AHNAK is a specific target for the calcium- and zinc-binding S100B protein: potential implications for Ca2+ homeostasis regulation by S100B

Transformation of rat embryo fibroblast clone 6 cells by ras and temperature-sensitive p53val(135) is reverted by ectopic expression of the calcium- and zinc-binding protein S100B. In an attempt to...
