Transgenic mice with human CD3epsilon gene have been shown to exhibit early arrest of T cell development in the thymus. The present study shows that, instead of T cells, B cells are generated in the thymus of a line, tg epsilon26, of the human CD3epsilon transgenic mice. The accumulation of mature B cells in the thymus was found only in tg epsilon26 mice,(More)
Kinesin motor proteins exert essential cellular functions in all eukaryotes. They control mitosis, migration and intracellular transport through interaction with microtubules. Small molecule inhibitors of the mitotic kinesin KiF11/Eg5 are a promising new class of anti-neoplastic agents currently evaluated in clinical cancer trials for solid tumors and(More)
The avian scapula is a long bone located dorsally on the thorax. The cranial part that articulates with the upper limb is derived from the somatopleure of the forelimb field, while the caudal part, the scapula blade, originates from the dermomyotomes of brachial and thoracic somites. In previous studies, we have shown that scapula blade formation is(More)
The basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor Math6 was shown to have important regulatory functions during many developmental events. However, a systematic description of Math6 expression during mouse embryonic development is up to now still lacking. We carried out this study to show Math6 expression at different stages of mouse embryonic development(More)
The TCR-associated protein CD3zeta plays a major role in regulating the state of responsiveness to peptide-MHC complexes on the surface of antigen-presenting cells. In this paper the requirement of CD3zeta in the generation of cytotoxic T cells was compared with its requirement in cytokine gene activation in two mutant mice: ZKO mice with a disrupted(More)
BACKGROUND Cells of the epithelially organised dermomyotome are traditionally believed to give rise to skeletal muscle and dermis. We have previously shown that the dermomyotome can undergo epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and give rise to chondrogenic cells, which go on to form the scapula blade in birds. At present we have little understanding(More)
