The nuclear receptor protein superfamily is a large group of transcription factors involved in many aspects of animal development, tissue differentiation, and homeostasis in the higher eukaryotes. A subfamily of receptors, ERRalpha and beta (estrogen receptor-related receptor alpha and beta), closely related to the ER, were among the first orphan nuclear(More)
Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasias (SED) are a heterogeneous group of inherited disorders characterized by disproportionate short stature and pleiotropic involvement of the skeletal and ocular systems. Evidence has suggested that SED may result from structural defects in type II collagen. To confirm the validity of this hypothesis, the structure of the(More)
The availability of large expressed sequence tag (EST) databases has led to a revolution in the way new genes are identified. Mining of these databases using known protein sequences as queries is a powerful technique for discovering orthologous and paralogous genes. The scientist is often confronted, however, by an enormous amount of search output owing to(More)
