Class switch recombination (CSR) and somatic hypermutation (SHM) are mechanistically related processes that share common key factors such as activation-induced cytidine deaminase. We have previously shown a role for ATM (mutated in ataxia-telangiectasia) in CSR. In this paper we show that the frequency, distribution, and nature of base pair substitutions in(More)
Vital vertebrate organs are protected from the external environment by a barrier that to a large extent consists of mucins. These proteins are characterized by poorly conserved repeated sequences that are rich in prolines and potentially glycosylated threonines and serines (PTS). We have now used the characteristics of the PTS repeat domain to identify(More)
An important step in epithelial organ development is size maturation of the organ lumen to attain correct dimensions. Here we show that the regulated expression of Tenectin (Tnc) is critical to shape the Drosophila melanogaster hindgut tube. Tnc is a secreted protein that fills the embryonic hindgut lumen during tube diameter expansion. Inside the lumen,(More)
