The regulated proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells before the generation and migration of neurons in the cerebral cortex are central aspects of mammalian development. Periventricular neuronal heterotopia, a specific form of mislocalization of cortical neurons, can arise from neuronal progenitors that fail to negotiate aspects of these(More)
The objective of this experiment was to test the hypothesis that early environmental influences could affect cardiovascular reactivity to acute stress in borderline hypertensive rats. This study utilized a cross-fostering paradigm in which borderline hypertensive rat (BHR) pups were reared by their natural spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) mothers, by an(More)
Neuropilin-1 (NRP-1) is a novel co-receptor for vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Neuropilin-1 is expressed in pancreatic cancer, but not in nonmalignant pancreatic tissue. We hypothesised that NRP-1 expression by pancreatic cancer cells contributes to the malignant phenotype. To determine the role of NRP-1 in pancreatic cancer, NRP-1 was stably(More)
Emery–Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) is characterised by early-onset joint contractures, progressive muscular weakness and wasting and late-onset cardiac disease. The more common X-linked recessive form of EDMD is caused by mutations in either EMD (encoding emerin) or FHL1 (encoding four and a half LIM domains 1), while mutations in LMNA (encoding lamin(More)
