Understanding the functional significance of the coordinate expression of specific corepressors and DNA-binding transcription factors remains a critical question in mammalian development. During the development of the pituitary gland, two highly related paired-like homeodomain factors, a repressor, Hesx1/Rpx and an activator, Prop-1, are expressed in(More)
Dysregulation of Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling has been implicated in glioma pathogenesis. Yet, the role of this pathway in gliomagenesis remains controversial because of the lack of relevant animal models. Using the cytokeratin 5 promoter, we ectopically expressed a constitutively active zebrafish Smoothened (Smoa1) in neural progenitor cells and analyzed(More)
Cyclo(phenylalanine-proline) is produced by various organisms such as animals, plants, bacteria and fungi. It has diverse biological functions including anti-fungal activity, anti-bacterial activity and molecular signalling. However, a few studies have demonstrated the effect of cyclo(phenylalanine-proline) on the mammalian cellular processes, such as cell(More)
