A single point mutation in peripheral myelin protein 22 (pmp22) of the Trembler-J (TrJ) mouse models the human peripheral neuropathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1 A (CMT1A). An unexplored aspect of this disease is the gradual remodeling of the extracellular matrix in affected nerves. To elucidate the mechanism responsible for these changes, the levels(More)
Based on information from the Arabidopsis model system, a putative transcriptional activator of cuticle formation (TaSHN1) was selected among the expressed sequence tags in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). RT-PCR indicated the preferential expression of this gene in the basal, but not in the middle parts of wheat leaves. This leaf region is a likely site of(More)
Based on the Arabidopsis model of production and transport of cuticular components in silico analysis of apple EST and genomic sequences identified candidate genes potentially involved in these processes. Expression profiling of the selected genes in apple leaves and fruit tissues at the stage of full tree ripeness showed them to be active in fruit skin, in(More)
