Mutational, functional, and expression studies of the TCF4 gene in Pitt-Hopkins syndrome

Pitt-Hopkins syndrome is a severe congenital encephalopathy recently ascribed to de novo heterozygous TCF4 gene mutations. We report a series of 13 novel PHS cases with a TCF4 mutation and show that...

Ottaviani, A.  et al. 2009

The D4Z4 macrosatellite repeat acts as a CTCF and A-type lamins-dependent insulator in facio-scapulo-humeral dystrophy

Both genetic and epigenetic alterations contribute to Facio-Scapulo-Humeral Dystrophy (FSHD), which is linked to the shortening of the array of D4Z4 repeats at the 4q35 locus. The consequence of this...

Bajolle, F.  et al. 2009

Conotruncal defects associated with anomalous pulmonary venous connections

BACKGROUND: Conotruncal defects constitute one of the major categories of congenital heart disease. Our understanding of how these defects develop has been derived from knowledge of the role of neural...

Cotti, J.  et al. 2009

Adaptation of reactive and voluntary saccades: different patterns of adaptation revealed in the antisaccade task

Sensorimotor adaptation restores and maintains the accuracy of goal-directed movements. It remains unclear whether these adaptive mechanisms modify actions by controlling peripheral premotor stages...

Leschik, J.  et al. 2008

Cardiac commitment of primate embryonic stem cells

Primate nonhuman and human embryonic stem (ES) cells provide a powerful model of early cardiogenesis. Furthermore, engineering of cardiac progenitors or cardiomyocytes from ES cells offers a tool for...
