Pan-vertebrate developmental cis-regulatory elements are discernible as highly conserved noncoding elements (HCNEs) and are often dispersed over large areas around the pleiotropic genes whose expression they control. On the loci of two developmental transcription factor genes, SOX3 and PAX6, we demonstrate that HCNEs conserved between human and zebrafish(More)
The habenulae are bilateral nuclei located in the dorsal diencephalon that are conserved across vertebrates. Here we describe the main afferents to the habenulae in larval and adult zebrafish. We observe afferents from the subpallium, nucleus rostrolateralis, posterior tuberculum, posterior hypothalamic lobe, median raphe; we also see asymmetric afferents(More)
It is currently unclear how intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms cooperate to control the progression from self-renewing to neurogenic divisions in retinal precursor cells. Here, we use the zebrafish flotte lotte (flo) mutant, which carries a mutation in the elys (ahctf1) gene, to study the relationship between cell cycle progression and neuronal(More)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of devastating neurodevelopmental syndromes that affect up to 1 in 68 children. Despite advances in the identification of ASD risk genes, the mechanisms underlying ASDs remain unknown. Homozygous loss-of-function mutations in Contactin Associated Protein-like 2 (CNTNAP2) are strongly linked to ASDs. Here we(More)
A specific polysome immunoadsorption procedure, employing soluble rabbit anti-NADP-GDH IgG and sheep anti-rabbit IgG covalently-linked to an insoluble cellulose matrix, was used to immunoselect polysomes translating mRNA for a chloroplastic ammonium-inducible NADP-GDH in fully induced cells of Chlorella sorokiniana. The immunoselected polysomes were(More)
Flt4 is a receptor protein tyrosine kinase that is expressed in the adult lymphatic endothelium and high endothelial venules. We have used a BIAcore assay to identify rodent and human cell conditioned media containing the ligand of Flt4 (Flt4-L). Receptor-based affinity chromatography was used to purify this growth factor, followed by amino acid sequencing(More)
mental data can be mapped. The HUDSEN gene expression database is a unique, curated database of gene expression patterns in the developing human embryo. Domains of gene expression from experimental data are mapped onto the standard reference models and visualised in 3D. The database includes an anatomical ontology for each Carnegie stage, and the(More)
Granulocyte/ macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GMCSF) and interleukin-3 (11-3) each bind specifically to a small number of high-affinity receptors present on the surface of the cells of the acute myelogenous leukemia line, KG-i . Through chemical cross-linking of IL-3 and GM-CSF to KG-i cells, we identified distinct binding proteins for each of these(More)
