Recent data from genome-wide chromosome conformation capture analysis indicate that the human genome is divided into conserved megabase-sized self-interacting regions called topological domains. These topological domains form the regulatory backbone of the genome and are separated by regulatory boundary elements or barriers. Copy-number variations can(More)
BACKGROUND The sheep is an important model organism for many types of medically relevant research, but molecular genetic experiments in the sheep have been limited by the lack of knowledge about ovine gene sequences. RESULTS Prior to our study, mRNA sequences for only 1,556 partial or complete ovine genes were publicly available. Therefore, we developed a(More)
Three mutations in the highly conserved DNA-binding region of c-MAF (R288P, K297R, and R299S) are associated with phenotypically distinct forms of autosomal dominant congenital cataract. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this phenotypic diversity remain unclear. In this work, we have investigated the hypothesis that differential transactivation(More)
