This study describes comprehensive polling of transcription start and termination sites and analysis of previously unidentified full-length complementary DNAs derived from the mouse genome. We identify the 5' and 3' boundaries of 181,047 transcripts with extensive variation in transcripts arising from alternative promoter usage, splicing, and(More)

The inducible gene Homer1a has been considered a candidate gene for schizophrenia. Drugs efficacious in schizophrenia and acting as dopamine receptor antagonists induce Homer1a expression, although the specific role of the different dopamine receptors in its induction is not completely known. In this study, we explored Homer1a expression induced by(More)
Systemic administration of ketamine, a non-competitive antagonist of the N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDA-R), produces a condition of NMDA-R hypofunction, which is considered one of the putative molecular mechanisms involved in psychosis. In this study, we evaluated the effect of ketamine on glutamatergic markers of the postsynaptic density (PSD), a(More)
Tottering mice are a spontaneously occurring animal model of human absence epilepsy. They carry a mutation in the P/Q-type calcium channel alpha1A subunit gene which is highly expressed by cerebellar Purkinje cells. In this study, we investigated the role of calretinin and ryanodine receptor type 1 (RyR1) gene expression in the cerebellum of tottering mice.(More)
Homer1a is a glutamate-related gene whose expression is induced by antipsychotics acutely (i.e. 90 min after treatment). Acute Homer1a expression is preserved after prolonged antipsychotic treatments, while the effects of short-term discontinuation after chronic antipsychotic treatment have not yet been assessed. Here, we studied early and long-term effects(More)
Peripheral T cell lymphomas (PTCLs) are a heterogeneous and poorly understood group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Here we combined whole-exome sequencing of 12 tumor-normal DNA pairs, RNA sequencing analysis and targeted deep sequencing to identify new genetic alterations in PTCL transformation. These analyses identified highly recurrent epigenetic factor(More)
Neuronal expression of immediate-early genes in response to a drug is a powerful screening tool for dissecting anatomical and functional brain circuitry affected by psychoactive compounds. We examined the effect of dopaminergic perturbation on two Homer 1 gene splice variants, Homer 1a and ania-3, in rat forebrain. Rats were treated with the "typical"(More)
N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor hypofunction has been suggested to play a role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. New glutamatergic mechanisms involving metabotropic receptors have been recently proposed to further expand this hypothesis. "Homer" is a family of postsynaptic density proteins functionally and physically attached to glutamate metabotropic(More)
The TLX1 and TLX3 transcription factor oncogenes have a key role in the pathogenesis of T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Here we used reverse engineering of global transcriptional networks to decipher the oncogenic regulatory circuit controlled by TLX1 and TLX3. This systems biology analysis defined T cell leukemia homeobox 1 (TLX1) and TLX3 as(More)
