Heterozygous LHX3 mutations may lead to a mild phenotype of combined pituitary hormone deficiency

LHX3 is an LIM domain transcription factor involved in the early steps of pituitary ontogenesis. We report here functional studies of three allelic variants, including the first heterozygous variant...

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...

Blin, G.  et al. 2018

Geometrical confinement controls the asymmetric patterning of brachyury in cultures of pluripotent cells

Diffusible signals are known to orchestrate patterning during embryogenesis, yet diffusion is sensitive to noise. The fact that embryogenesis is remarkably robust suggests that additional layers of...

Maurice, F.  et al. 2018

Active cushing syndrome patients have increased ectopic fat deposition and bone marrow fat content compared to cured patients and healthy subjects: a pilot 1H-MRS study

OBJECTIVE: Glucocorticoid excess is one of the most important causes of bone disorders. Bone marrow fat (BMF) has been identified as a l new mediator of bone metabolism. Cushing syndrome (CS), is a...

Ludlow, AT.  et al. 2018

NOVA1 regulates hTERT splicing and cell growth in non-small cell lung cancer

Alternative splicing is dysregulated in cancer and the reactivation of telomerase involves the splicing of TERT transcripts to produce full-length (FL) TERT. Knowledge about the splicing factors that...

Vermalle, M.  et al. 2018

Lack of functional remission in Cushing's syndrome

INTRODUCTION: Hypercortisolism leads to severe clinical consequences persisting after the onset of remission. These physical sequelae of cortisol exposure are known to profoundly impact the patient's...

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...

The involvement of the nuclear lamina in human and rodent spermiogenesis: a systematic review

The nuclear lamina (NL) is a filamentous protein meshwork, composed essentially of lamins, situated between the inner nuclear membrane and the chromatin. The NL is a component of the nuclear envelope,...

Lin, S.  et al. 2018

Potent effects of roniciclib alone and with sorafenib against well-differentiated thyroid cancer

Activation of cyclin-dependent kinase activity is frequently observed in many human cancers; therefore, cyclin-dependent kinases that promote cell cycle transition and cell proliferation may be...
