Topological Progression in Proliferating Epithelia Is Driven by a Unique Variation in Polygon Distribution
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Morphogenesis is consequence of lots of small coordinated variations that occur during development. In proliferating stages, tissue growth is coupled to changes in shape and organization. A number of studies have analyzed ...
Linker histone H1 prevents R-loop accumulation and genome instability in heterochromatin
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Linker histone H1 is an important structural component of chromatin that stabilizes the nucleosome and compacts the nucleofilament into higher-order structures. The biology of histone H1 remains, however, poorly understood. ...
Immunohistochemical assessment of Pax8 expression during pancreatic islet development and in human neuroendocrine tumors
(Springer Verlag, 2011)
The paired box transcription factor Pax8 is critical for development of the eye, thyroid gland as well as the urinary and reproductive organs. In adult, Pax8 overexpression is associated with kidney, ovarian and thyroid ...
Potential use of adipose tissue stem cells in the control of aging
(Federation of Anti-Aging Medicine Societies, 2012)
Cell therapy with adult stem cells is a new battle front for the control of aging. Before being used for this purpose, we need to answer several basic questions about the biochemistry and physiology of these cells. This ...
Zim17/Tim15 links mitochondrial iron–sulfur cluster biosynthesis to nuclear genome stability
(Oxford University Press, 2011)
Genomic instability is related to a wide-range of human diseases. Here, we show that mitochondrial iron–sulfur cluster biosynthesis is important for the maintenance of nuclear genome stability in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. ...
The replication checkpoint protects fork stability by releasing transcribed genes from nuclear pores
Transcription hinders replication fork progression and stability, and the Mec1/ATR checkpoint protects fork integrity. Examining checkpoint-dependent mechanisms controlling fork stability, we find that fork reversal and ...
The Rad50 coiled-coil domain is indispensable for Mre11 complex functions
(Nature Publishing Group, 2011)
The Mre11 complex (Mre11, Rad50 and Xrs2 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae) influences diverse functions in the DNA damage response. The complex comprises the globular DNA-binding domain and the Rad50 hook domain, which are ...
PHF2 regulates homology-directed DNA repair by controlling the resection of DNA double strand breaks
(Oxford University Press, 2020)
Post-translational histone modifications and chromatin remodelling play a critical role controlling the integrity of the genome. Here, we identify histone lysine demethylase PHF2 as a novel regulator of the DNA damage ...
