The mechanisms regulating the generation of cell diversity in the mammalian cerebral cortex are beginning to be elucidated. In that regard, Hairy/Enhancer of split (Hes) 1 and 5 are basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) factors that inhibit the differentiation of pluripotent cortical progenitors into neurons. In contrast, a related Hes family member termed Hes6(More)
Transcriptional corepressors of the Groucho (Gro)/TLE family play important roles during a variety of developmental pathways, including neuronal differentiation. In particular, they act as negative regulators of neurogenesis, together with Hairy/Enhancer of split (Hes) DNA-binding proteins. The interaction with Hes1 leads to Gro/TLE hyperphosphorylation and(More)
Hairy/Enhancer of split (Hes) 6 is a basic helix-loop-helix protein that interacts with the transcriptional co-repressor, Groucho, and antagonizes the neural functions of the Notch pathway. More specifically, mouse Hes6 regulates cerebral corticogenesis by promoting neurogenesis and suppressing astrocyte differentiation. The molecular mechanisms underlying(More)
Transcriptional corepressors of the Groucho/transducin-like Enhancer of split (Gro/TLE) family are involved in a variety of cell differentiation mechanisms in both invertebrates and vertebrates. They become recruited to specific promoter regions by forming complexes with a number of different DNA-binding proteins thereby contributing to the regulation of(More)
BACKGROUND Transcriptional co-repressors of the Groucho/transducin-like Enhancer of split (Gro/TLE) family regulate the expression of a variety of genes and are involved in numerous developmental processes in both invertebrate and vertebrate species. More specifically, Gro/TLE1 participates in mechanisms that inhibit/delay the differentiation of cerebral(More)
The chemistry and biology of novel TXA2(TP)-receptor agonists based on the prostanoid skeleton is described and structure-activity-relationships are discussed. One compound,(5Z,13E), (9R,15R)-9-fluoro-15-hydroxy-16-phenoxy-17,18,19,20-tetranor- 5,13-prostadienoic acid (33), was identified which is 10 times more potent than the standard TP-receptor against U(More)
