In 2007, the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) made the ambitious promise to generate mutations in virtually every protein-coding gene of the mouse genome in a concerted worldwide action. Now, 5 years later, the IKMC members have developed high-throughput gene trapping and, in particular, gene-targeting pipelines and generated more than 17,400(More)
More than 90% of cervical carcinomas are associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. The two viral oncogenes E6 and E7 play a major role in transforming the cells by disrupting p53- and pRb-dependent cell cycle checkpoints. A hallmark of HPV-associated cervical carcinoma is loss of the expression of the viral E2 protein, often by disruption of(More)
PURPOSE This study is part of a general search for the anatomical bases of the severe mental retardation syndrome caused by prenatal irradiation. More specifically, it seeks reasons for the high radiosensitivity of a white matter area, the cingulum of the corpus callosum. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pregnant primiparous Wistar rats were exposed to X-rays at 12,(More)
