Growth differentiating factor-9 mutations may be associated with premature ovarian failure.
OBJECTIVE To determine whether perturbations of the growth differentiating factor-9 (GDF9) gene are associated with premature ovarian failure (POF). DESIGN Mutational analysis of the GDF9 gene inExpand

Multipotential differentiation of human urine‐derived stem cells: Potential for therapeutic applications in urology
We sought to biologically characterize and identify a subpopulation of urine‐derived stem cells (USCs) with the capacity for multipotent differentiation. We demonstrated that single USCs can expandExpand

The mouse juvenile spermatogonial depletion (jsd) phenotype is due to a mutation in the X-derived retrogene, mUtp14b.
The recessive juvenile spermatogonial depletion (jsd) mutation results in a single wave of spermatogenesis, followed by failure of type A spermatogonia to differentiate, resulting in adult maleExpand

UTP14c Is a Recently Acquired Retrogene Associated with Spermatogenesis and Fertility in Man1
Abstract In the mouse, Utp14b is a retrogene transposed to an intron of Acsl3 (long-chain-fatty-acid coenzyme A ligase 3) on mouse chromosome 1. It represents a copy of Utp14a, a ubiquitouslyExpand

Probable mechanical transmission of a virus-like agent from rose rosette disease-infected multiflora rose to Nicotiana species
Summary As part of efforts to identify the causal agent of the rose rosette disease (RRD) of multiflora rose (Rosa multiflora Thunb.), root tip extracts from both symptomatic and nonsymptomaticExpand

Utp14b: a unique retrogene within a gene that has acquired multiple promoters and a specific function in spermatogenesis.
The mouse retrogene Utp14b is essential for male fertility, and a mutation in its sequence results in the sterile juvenile spermatogonial depletion (jsd) phenotype. It is a retrotransposed copy ofExpand

Oocyte-specific G-protein-coupled receptor 3 (GPR3): no perturbations found in 82 women with premature ovarian failure (first report).
The oocyte-specific G-protein-coupled receptor 3 (GPR3) gene is essential in maintaining meiotic arrest in mouse oocytes. Disruption of GPR3 results in early depletion of oocytes and thus prematureExpand

Genetic influences on stress urinary incontinence
Purpose of review The purpose of this review is to summarize the current evidence for the genetic basis of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Recent findings Based on epidemiologic data, thereExpand

Inkjet-mediated gene transfection into living cells combined with targeted delivery.
In this study a novel method of simultaneous gene transfection and cell delivery based on inkjet printing technology is described. Plasmids encoding green fluorescent protein (GFP) were coprintedExpand

Spermatogenesis Associated Retrogenes Are Expressed in the Human Ovary and Ovarian Cancers
Background Ovarian cancer is the second most prevalent gynecologic cancer in women. However, it is by far the most lethal. This is generally attributed to the absence of easily detectable markersExpand
