HuR is an RNA-binding protein implicated in a diverse array of pathophysiological processes due to its effects on the posttranscriptional regulation of AU- and U-rich mRNAs. Here we reveal HuR's requirement in embryonic development through its genetic ablation. Obligatory HuR-null embryos exhibited a stage retardation phenotype and failed to survive beyond(More)
The src homology 2 domain-containing tyrosine phosphatase 2 (SHP2) plays an important role in development and in growth factor receptor signaling pathways, yet little is known of its role in the immune system. We generated mice expressing a dominant-negative version of the protein, SHP2(CS), specifically in T cells. In SHP2(CS) mice, T cell development(More)
BACKGROUND The Conditional by Inversion (COIN) method for engineering conditional alleles relies on an invertible optimized gene trap-like element, the COIN module, for imparting conditionality. The COIN module contains an optimized 3' splice site-polyadenylation signal pair, but is inserted antisense to the target gene and therefore does not alter(More)
