The dynein regulatory complex is required for ciliary motility and otolith biogenesis in the inner ear
In teleosts, proper balance and hearing depend on mechanical sensors in the inner ear. These sensors include actin-based microvilli and microtubule-based cilia that extend from the surface of sensoryExpand
Mutation in sodium-calcium exchanger 1 (NCX1) causes cardiac fibrillation in zebrafish.
Cardiac fibrillation, a form of cardiac arrhythmia, is the most common cause of embolic stroke and death associated with heart failure. The molecular mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrillation areExpand
The PAF1 complex component Leo1 is essential for cardiac and neural crest development in zebrafish.
Leo1 is a component of the Polymerase-Associated Factor 1 (PAF1) complex, an evolutionarily conserved protein complex involved in gene transcription regulation and chromatin remodeling. The role ofExpand
Na,K-ATPase α2 and Ncx4a regulate zebrafish left-right patterning
A conserved molecular cascade involving Nodal signaling that patterns the laterality of the lateral mesoderm in vertebrates has been extensively studied, but processes involved in the initial breakExpand

Genomewide Clonal Analysis of Lethal Mutations in the Drosophila melanogaster Eye: Comparison of the X Chromosome and Autosomes
Using a large consortium of undergraduate students in an organized program at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), we have undertaken a functional genomic screen in the Drosophila eye.Expand
Whole‐mount fluorescent in situ hybridization staining of the colonial tunicate Botryllus schlosseri
Botryllus schlosseri is a colonial ascidian with characteristics that make it an attractive model for studying immunology, stem cell biology, evolutionary biology, and regeneration. TranscriptomeExpand
Discovery-Based Science Education: Functional Genomic Dissection in Drosophila by Undergraduate Researchers
How can you combine professional-quality research with discovery-based undergraduate education? The UCLA Undergraduate Consortium for Functional Genomics provides the answer
The PAF1 complex differentially regulates cardiomyocyte specification.
The specification of an appropriate number of cardiomyocytes from the lateral plate mesoderm requires a careful balance of both positive and negative regulatory signals. To identify new regulators ofExpand
Involvement of zebrafish Na+,K+ ATPase in myocardial cell junction maintenance
Na+,K+ ATPase is an essential ion pump involved in regulating ionic concentrations within epithelial cells. The zebrafish heart and mind (had) mutation, which disrupts the α1B1 subunit of Na+,K+Expand
