Scratch proteins are members of the Snail superfamily which have been shown to regulate invertebrate neural development. However, in vertebrates, little is known about the function of Scratch or its relationship to other neural transcription factors. We report the cloning of chicken Scratch2 (cScrt2) and describe its expression pattern in the chick embryo(More)
The Rst-Neph family comprises an evolutionarily conserved group of single-pass transmembrane glycoproteins that belong to the immunoglobulin superfamily and participate in a wide range of cell adhesion and recognition events in both vertebrates and invertebrates. In mammals and fish, three Rst-Neph members, named Neph1-3, are present. Besides being widely(More)
To better understand the endocrine control of reproduction in Characiformes and the reproductive dysfunctions that commonly occur in migratory fish of this order when kept in captivity, we chose Astyanax altiparanae, which has asynchronous ovarian development and multiple spawning events, as model species. From A. altiparanae pituitary total RNA, we cloned(More)
In ovo electroporation of the chick neural tube is a fast and inexpensive method for identification of gene function during neural development. Genome wide analysis of differentially expressed transcripts after such an experimental manipulation has the potential to uncover an almost complete picture of the downstream effects caused by the transfected(More)
