Ryckebusch, L.  et al. 2008

Retinoic acid deficiency alters second heart field formation

Retinoic acid (RA), the active derivative of vitamin A, has been implicated in various steps of cardiovascular development. The retinaldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (RALDH2) enzyme catalyzes the second...

Manni, F.  et al. 2008

Do surname differences mirror dialect variation?

Our focus in this paper is the analysis of surnames, which have been proven to be reliable genetic markers because in patrilineal systems they are transmitted along generations virtually unchanged,...

Bajolle, F.  et al. 2008

Myocardium at the base of the aorta and pulmonary trunk is prefigured in the outflow tract of the heart and in subdomains of the second heart field

Outflow tract myocardium in the mouse heart is derived from the anterior heart field, a subdomain of the second heart field. We have recently characterized a transgene (y96-Myf5-nlacZ-16), which is...

Ottaviani, A.  et al. 2008

Telomeric position effect: from the yeast paradigm to human pathologies?

Alteration of the epigenome is associated with a wide range of human diseases. Therefore, deciphering the pathways that regulate the epigenetic modulation of gene expression is a major milestone for...

Berberian, B.  et al. 2007

Dynamics of visuo-spatial remembering: a study of information structuring in memory

We studied the process by which learning a pattern of motor activity reaches a steady-state characterized by a reduction in fluctuations. The stimuli consisted of eight visually presented dots that...

Lo, PCH.  et al. 2007

The Drosophila Hand gene is required for remodeling of the developing adult heart and midgut during metamorphosis

The Hand proteins of the bHLH family of transcriptional factors play critical roles in vertebrate cardiogenesis. In Drosophila, the single orthologous Hand gene is expressed in the developing...

de Pontual, L.  et al. 2007

Methylation-associated PHOX2B gene silencing is a rare event in human neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma (NB), an embryonic tumour originating from neural crest cells, is one of the most common solid tumours in childhood. Although NB is characterised by numerous recurrent, large-scale...

Mutations in FGD4 encoding the Rho GDP/GTP exchange factor FRABIN cause autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 4H

Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disorders are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of hereditary motor and sensory neuropathies characterized by muscle weakness and wasting, foot and hand...

Benninger, Y.  et al. 2007

Essential and distinct roles for cdc42 and rac1 in the regulation of Schwann cell biology during peripheral nervous system development

During peripheral nervous system (PNS) myelination, Schwann cells must interpret extracellular cues to sense their environment and regulate their intrinsic developmental program accordingly. The...

Golzio, C.  et al. 2007

Matthew-Wood syndrome is caused by truncating mutations in the retinol-binding protein receptor gene STRA6

Retinoic acid (RA) is a potent teratogen in all vertebrates when tight homeostatic controls on its endogenous dose, location, or timing are perturbed during early embryogenesis. STRA6 encodes an...

AAV-mediated delivery of a mutated myostatin propeptide ameliorates calpain 3 but not alpha-sarcoglycan deficiency

Myostatin is a negative regulator of muscle mass whose inhibition has been proposed as a therapeutic strategy for muscle-wasting conditions. Indeed, blocking myostatin action through different...

Prall, OWJ.  et al. 2007

An Nkx2-5/Bmp2/Smad1 negative feedback loop controls heart progenitor specification and proliferation

During heart development the second heart field (SHF) provides progenitor cells for most cardiomyocytes and expresses the homeodomain factor Nkx2-5. We now show that feedback repression of Bmp2/Smad1...
