Hes and Hey genes are the mammalian counterparts of the Hairy and Enhancer-of-split type of genes in Drosophila and they represent the primary targets of the Delta-Notch signaling pathway. Hairy-related factors control multiple steps of embryonic development and misregulation is associated with various defects. Hes and Hey genes (also called Hesr, Chf, Hrt,… (More)
The fungus Fusarium fujikuroi causes "bakanae" disease of rice due to its ability to produce gibberellins (GAs), but it is also known for producing harmful mycotoxins. However, the genetic capacity for the whole arsenal of natural compounds and their role in the fungus' interaction with rice remained unknown. Here, we present a high-quality genome sequence… (More)
Proteins containing the evolutionarily conserved SET domain are involved in regulation of eukaryotic gene expression and chromatin structure through their histone lysine methyltransferase (HMTase) activity. The Drosophila SU(VAR)3-9 protein and related proteins of other organisms have been associated with gene repression and heterochromatinization. In… (More)
Gridlock (grl) is one of the first mutations characterized from the large zebrafish mutagenesis screens, and it results in an arterial (aortic) maturation defect, which was proposed to resemble aortic coarctation, a clinically important human malformation. While the grl mutation appears to be a hypomorph, grl knockdown experiments have shown even stronger… (More)
In this study, full-genome DNA microarrays based on the sequence of Staphylococcus aureus N315 were used to compare the transcriptome of a clinical S. aureus strain with a normal phenotype to that of its isogenic mutant with a stable small-colony-variant (SCV) phenotype (hemB::ermB). In addition to standard statistical analyses, systems biology advances… (More)
Chromatin structure and gene expression are regulated by posttranslational modifications (PTMs) on the N-terminal tails of histones. Mono-, di-, or trimethylation of lysine residues by histone lysine methyltransferases (HKMTases) can have activating or repressive functions depending on the position and context of the modified lysine. In Arabidopsis,… (More)
We give a complete characterisation of the sets in which Peano derivatives of functions, which are definable in an o-minimal expansion of a real closed field, are continuously respectively Fréchet differentiable.
Neural crest (NC) cells are a multipotent, highly migratory cell population that generates most of the components of the peripheral nervous system (PNS), including the glial Schwann cells (SC) and boundary cap (BC) cells. These latter cells are located at the interface between the central nervous system and PNS, at the exit/entry points of ventral… (More)
Let M be an o-minimal expansion of the real exponential field which possesses smooth cell decomposition. We prove that for every definable open set, the definable indefinitely continuously differentiable functions are a dense subset of the definable continuous function with respect to the o-minimal Whitney topology.
Given an o-minimal expansion M of a real closed field R which is not polynomially bounded. Let P ∞ denote the definable indefinitely Peano differentiable functions. If we further assume that M admits P ∞ cell decomposition , each definable closed set A ⊂ R n is the zero-set of a P ∞ function f : R n → R. This implies P ∞ approximation of definable… (More)
