The RUNX transcription factors are important regulators of linage-specific gene expression in major developmental pathways. Recently, we demonstrated that Runx3 is highly expressed in developing cranial and dorsal root ganglia (DRGs). Here we report that within the DRGs, Runx3 is specifically expressed in a subset of neurons, the tyrosine kinase receptor C(More)
The RUNX transcription factors are key regulators of lineage specific gene expression in developmental pathways. The mammalian RUNX genes arose early in evolution and maintained extensive structural similarities. Sequence analysis suggested that RUNX3 is the most ancient of the three mammalian genes, consistent with its role in neurogenesis of the(More)
BACKGROUND Alternative promoters usage is an important paradigm in transcriptional control of mammalian gene expression. However, despite the growing interest in alternative promoters and their role in genome diversification, very little is known about how and on what occasions those promoters are differentially regulated. Runx1 transcription factor is a(More)
Following myonecrosis, muscle satellite cells proliferate, differentiate and fuse, creating new myofibers. The Runx1 transcription factor is not expressed in naïve developing muscle or in adult muscle tissue. However, it is highly expressed in muscles exposed to myopathic damage yet, the role of Runx1 in muscle regeneration is completely unknown. Our study(More)
Opening Remark We use molecular-and biochemical-cell-systems as well as transgenic mice and gene targeting approaches to investigate how differential gene expression patterns are established and maintained during mammalian development and under disease conditions. We address this question through investigating the biology of SOD1 and two transcription(More)
