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...

Billard, L.  et al. 2002

MeCP2 and MBD2 expression during normal and pathological growth of the human mammary gland

During the last years, a direct link between DNA methylation and repressive chromatin structure has been established. This structural modification is mediated by histone deacetylases targeted to the...

Gaillard, S.  et al. 2001

Striatin, a calmodulin-dependent scaffolding protein, directly binds caveolin-1

Caveolins are scaffolding proteins able to collect on caveolae a large number of signalling proteins bearing a caveolin-binding motif. The proteins of the striatin family, striatin, SG2NA, and...

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

Magdinier, F.  et al. 2001

Selective association of the methyl-CpG binding protein MBD2 with the silent p14/p16 locus in human neoplasia

DNA methylation of tumor suppressor genes is a common feature of human cancer. The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor gene p16/Ink4A is hypermethylated in a wide range of malignant tissues and the...

Magdinier, F.  et al. 2000

Regional methylation of the 5' end CpG island of BRCA1 is associated with reduced gene expression in human somatic cells

In mammalians, demethylation of specific promoter regions often correlates with gene activation; inversely, dense methylation of CpG islands leads to gene silencing, probably mediated by methyl-CpG...
FASEB J. - issue: 11 - volume: 14 - pages: 1585-1594.


Zaffran, S.  et al. 2000

The NK-2 homeobox gene scarecrow (scro) is expressed in pharynx, ventral nerve cord and brain of Drosophila embryos

Members of the NK homeobox family have been widely conserved during evolution. Here we describe the sequence and expression of a novel Drosophila NK-2 homeobox gene, named scarecrow (scro), which...
Mech. Dev. - issue: 1-2 - volume: 94 - pages: 237-241.


Bartoli, M.  et al. 1999

Down-regulation of striatin, a neuronal calmodulin-binding protein, impairs rat locomotor activity

Striatin, an intraneuronal, calmodulin-binding protein addressed to dendrites and spines, is expressed in the motor system, particularly the striatum and motoneurons. Striatin contains a high number...

Magdinier, F.  et al. 1999

BRCA1 expression during prenatal development of the human mammary gland

Germ-line alterations of BRCA1 are associated with elevated risk of breast cancer. Evidence for the involvement of Brca1 in cellular differentiation and morphogenesis has been obtained in mouse models...

Down-regulation of BRCA1 in human sporadic breast cancer; analysis of DNA methylation patterns of the putative promoter region
