Despite the well established role of the frontal and posterior perisylvian cortices in many facets of human-cognitive specializations, including language, little is known about the developmental patterning of these regions in the human brain. We performed a genome-wide analysis of human cerebral patterning during midgestation, a critical epoch in cortical(More)
Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is caused by reduction of frataxin levels to 5-35%. To better understand the biochemical sequelae of frataxin reduction, in absence of the confounding effects of neurodegeneration, we studied the gene expression profile of a mouse model expressing 25-36% of the normal frataxin levels, and not showing a detectable phenotype or(More)
The tumour suppressor p53 is a crucial regulator of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis by acting as a transcription factor to regulate a variety of genes. At least in part, this control is exerted by p53 via regulating expression of numerous microRNAs. We identified two abundantly expressed microRNAs, miR-16 and miR-26a, whose expression is regulated by p53(More)
Genotoxic stress inflicted by anti-cancer drugs causes DNA breaks and genome instability. DNA double strand breaks induced by irradiation or pharmacological inhibition of Topoisomerase II activate ATM (ataxia-telangiectasia-mutated) kinase signalling pathway that in turn triggers cell cycle arrest and DNA repair. ATM-dependent gamma-phosphorylation of(More)
The 2nd workshop 'Novel Therapeutic Strategies in Cancer' sponsored by the Russian Government program, supporting the research in Russian universities under the guidance of the world-leading scientists was held in September 2012. Presentations reviewed recent findings of the leading scientists from Russia, Europe, US and China on various aspects of cell(More)
ACTN4 is an actin-binding protein that participates in cytoskeleton organisation. It resides both in the cytoplasm and nucleus and physically associates with various transcription factors. Here, we describe an effect of ACTN4 expression on transcriptional activity of the RelA/p65 subunit of NF-kB. We demonstrate that ACTN4 enhances RelA/p65-dependant(More)
