A fat-specific enhancer is the primary determinant of gene expression for adipocyte P2 in vivo.
The murine gene for adipocyte P2 encodes an adipocyte-specific member of the family of intracellular lipid binding proteins. The region upstream from the start of transcription of this gene has beenExpand

Knock‐out mouse for Canavan disease: a model for gene transfer to the central nervous system
Canavan disease (CD) is an autosomal recessive leukodystrophy characterized by deficiency of aspartoacylase (ASPA) and increased levels of N‐acetylaspartic acid (NAA) in brain and body fluids, severeExpand

Identification of a fat cell enhancer: Analysis of requirements for adipose tissue‐specific gene expression
The molecular basis for adipose‐specific gene expression is not known. To approach the problem of adipocyte gene expression, we have analyzed in detail the capacity of the 5′‐flanking region of theExpand

Mouse Gli 1 mutants are viable but have defects in SHH signaling in combination with a Gli 2 mutation
The developing embryo is dependent on numerous genetic interactions that specify cell fates within tissues and along the body axes. In recent years, a growing number of interesting mouseExpand

Isolation and characterization of neutral-lipid-containing organelles and globuli-filled plastids from Brassica napus tapetum.
The monolayer tapetum cells of the maturing flowers of Brassica napus contain abundant subcellular globuli-filled plastids and special lipid particles, both enriched with lipids that are supposed toExpand

Importance of the Fixative for Reliable Ultrastructural Preservation of Poikilohydric Plant Tissues. Observations on Dry, Partially, and Fully Hydrated Tissues ofSelaginella lepidophylla
Abstract Leaves of desiccated ‘resurrection plants’, Selaginella lepidophylla , were hydrated either through the roots of intact plants or as isolated organs. Air-dry tissue and samples at 1, 4, 8Expand

Conservation of Cell Order in Desiccated Mesophyll of Selaginella lepidophylla ([Hook and Grev.] Spring)
Abstract Understanding of the basis of desiccation tolerance in mature plant tissues that survive extreme dehydration requires knowledge of the degree of cellular order in the dry state. Generally,Expand

Oleosin genes in maize kernels having diverse oil contents are constitutively expressed independent of oil contents
In seeds, the subcellular storage oil bodies have a matrix of oils (triacylglycerols) surrounded by a layer of phospholipids embedded with abundant structural proteins called oleosins. We used twoExpand
