The dentin matrix acidic phosphoprotein gene has been mapped to human chromosome 4q21 and mouse chromosome 5q21. Expression studies have implicated a role for this gene in the mineralization of dentin. In the current investigation, a cDNA encoding bovine dentin matrix acidic phosphoprotein has been cloned and sequenced. A comparison of the bovine gene with(More)
Class I phosphoinositide (PI) 3-kinases act through effector proteins whose 3-PI selectivity is mediated by a limited repertoire of structurally defined, lipid recognition domains. We describe here the lipid preferences and crystal structure of a new class of PI binding modules exemplified by select IQGAPs (IQ motif containing GTPase-activating proteins)(More)
Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) results from defects in a nucleolar trafficking protein (Treacle) coded for by the TCOF1 gene. 1 The purpose of this report is, firstly, to describe an isolated male with TCS associated with macular degeneration who also had a novel TCOF1 gene mutation and, secondly, to evaluate this mutation in a well characterised cohort of(More)
