Mind bomb is a ubiquitin ligase that is essential for efficient activation of Notch signaling by Delta.
Lateral inhibition, mediated by Notch signaling, leads to the selection of cells that are permitted to become neurons within domains defined by proneural gene expression. Reduced lateral inhibition… Expand
Repressor activity of Headless/Tcf3 is essential for vertebrate head formation
The vertebrate organizer can induce a complete body axis when transplanted to the ventral side of a host embryo by virtue of its distinct head and trunk inducing properties. Wingless/Wnt antagonists… Expand
Two tcf3 genes cooperate to pattern the zebrafish brain
Caudalizing factors operate in the context of Wnt/β-catenin signaling to induce gene expression in discrete compartments along the rostral-caudal axis of the developing vertebrate nervous system. In… Expand
Expression of proneural and neurogenic genes in the zebrafish lateral line primordium correlates with selection of hair cell fate in neuromasts
Expression of a mouse atonal homologue, math1, defines cells with the potential to become sensory hair cells in the mouse inner ear (Science 284 (1999) 1837) and Notch signaling limits the number of… Expand
A role for iro1 and iro7 in the establishment of an anteroposterior compartment of the ectoderm adjacent to the midbrain-hindbrain boundary.
We have identified a novel Iroquois (Iro) gene, iro7, in zebrafish. iro7 is expressed during gastrulation along with iro1 in a compartment of the dorsal ectoderm that includes the prospective… Expand
Nrarp functions to modulate neural-crest-cell differentiation by regulating LEF1 protein stability
Nrarp (Notch-regulated ankyrin repeat protein) is a small protein that has two ankyrin repeats. Although Nrarp is known to be an inhibitory component of the Notch signalling pathway that operates in… Expand
Molecular cloning and chromosomal mapping of a bone marrow stromal cell surface gene, BST2, that may be involved in pre-B-cell growth.
Bone marrow stromal cells regulate B-cell growth and development through their surface molecules and cytokines. In this study, we generated a mAb, RS38, that recognized a novel human membrane… Expand
Nemo-like kinase suppresses Notch signalling by interfering with formation of the Notch active transcriptional complex
The Notch signalling pathway has a crucial function in determining cell fates in multiple tissues within metazoan organisms. On binding to ligands, the Notch receptor is cleaved proteolytically and… Expand
Mib-Jag1-Notch signalling regulates patterning and structural roles of the notochord by controlling cell-fate decisions
In the developing embryo, cell-cell signalling is necessary for tissue patterning and structural organization. During midline development, the notochord plays roles in the patterning of its… Expand
bHLH transcription factor Her5 links patterning to regional inhibition of neurogenesis at the midbrain-hindbrain boundary
The midbrain-hindbrain (MH) domain of the vertebrate embryonic neural plate displays a stereotypical profile of neuronal differentiation, organized around a neuron-free zone (`intervening zone', IZ)… Expand
