Bring It to an End: Does Telomeres Size Matter?

Telomeres are unique nucleoprotein structures. Found at the edge of each chromosome, their main purpose is to mask DNA ends from the DNA-repair machinery by formation of protective loops. Through life...

Dysferlin Exon 32 Skipping in Patient Cells

Dysferlinopathies are rare genetic diseases affecting muscles due to mutations in DYSF. Exon 32 of DYSF has been shown to be dispensable for dysferlin functions. Here we present a method to visualize...

Zaffran, S.  et al. 2018

Ectopic expression of Hoxb1 induces cardiac and craniofacial malformations

Members of the large family of Hox transcription factors are encoded by genes whose tightly regulated expression in development and in space within different embryonic tissues confer positional...

Etchevers, HC.  et al. 2018

Giant congenital melanocytic nevus with vascular malformation and epidermal cysts associated with a somatic activating mutation in BRAF

Giant congenital melanocytic nevi may be symptomatically isolated or syndromic. Associations with capillary malformations are exceptional, and development of epidermal cysts has not been described. A...
Pigment Cell Melanoma Res - issue: 3 - volume: 31 - pages: 437-441.


Fultang, L.  et al. 2018

Macrophage-derived IL-1β and TNF-α regulate arginine metabolism in neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is the most common childhood solid tumor, yet the prognosis for high-risk disease remains poor. We demonstrate here that arginase 2 (ARG2) drives neuroblastoma cell proliferation via...

De Bono, C.  et al. 2018

T-box genes and retinoic acid signaling regulate the segregation of arterial and venous pole progenitor cells in the murine second heart field

The arterial and venous poles of the mammalian heart are hotspots of congenital heart defects (CHD) such as those observed in 22q11.2 deletion (or DiGeorge) and Holt–Oram syndromes. These regions of...
Hum Mol Genet - issue: 21 - volume: 27 - pages: 3747-3760.


Lescroart, F.  et al. 2018

Hox and Tale transcription factors in heart development and disease

Hox genes are highly conserved transcription factors with critical functions during development, in particular for patterning the antero-posterior axis of the embryo. Their action is very often...

Hubert, F.  et al. 2018

FGF10 Signaling in Heart Development, Homeostasis, Disease and Repair

Essential muscular organ that provides the whole body with oxygen and nutrients, the heart is the first organ to function during embryonic development. Cardiovascular diseases, including acquired and...
