A homologue of the Drosophila homothorax (hth) gene, Xenopus Meis3 (XMeis3), was cloned from Xenopus laevis. XMeis3 is expressed in a single stripe of cells in the early neural plate stage. By late neurula, the gene is expressed predominantly in rhombomeres two, three and four, and in the anterior spinal cord. Ectopic expression of RNA encoding XMeis3(More)
Neural crest induction is thought to occur by a two-step process. Axially fated mesoderm induces neural plate, which is then recruited to neural crest by nonneural epidermal ectoderm at the neural plate border. This model suggests a rather indirect role for mesoderm in inducing neural crest. We extensively examined the role of mesoderm in neural crest(More)
The outcome and quality of life of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients has remarkably changed with the treatment of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). Currently, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is considered mainly as a third line salvage therapy in cases of TKIs resistance or intolerance. Here we describe a patient with chronic phase CML(More)
