Somatic intrachromosomal recombination (SICR) can result in chromosomal inversion and deletion, mechanisms which are important in carcinogenesis. We have utilised a transgenic mouse model to study SICR inversion events in spleen cells. The transgenic construct is designed so that expression of an Escherichia coli lacZ transgene only occurs in a cell when an(More)
The mechanical properties of living tissues have a significant impact on cell differentiation, but remain unexplored in the context of myelin formation and repair. In the PNS, the extracellular matrix (ECM) incorporates a basal lamina significantly denser than the loosely organized CNS matrix. Inhibition of non-muscle myosin II (NMII) enhances central but(More)
