The Master Negative Regulator REST/NRSF Controls Adult Neurogenesis by Restraining the Neurogenic Program in Quiescent Stem Cells
Transcriptional regulation is a critical mechanism in the birth, specification, and differentiation of granule neurons in the adult hippocampus. One of the first negative-acting transcriptionalExpand

Identification of eight genes encoding chemokine-like factor superfamily members 1-8 (CKLFSF1-8) by in silico cloning and experimental validation.
TM4SF11 is only 102 kb from the chemokine gene cluster composed of SCYA22, SCYD1, and SCYA17 on chromosome 16q13. CKLF maps on chromosome 16q22. CKLFs have some characteristics associated with theExpand

Cardiac Myosin Light Chain Kinase Is Necessary for Myosin Regulatory Light Chain Phosphorylation and Cardiac Performance in Vivo*
In contrast to studies on skeletal and smooth muscles, the identity of kinases in the heart that are important physiologically for direct phosphorylation of myosin regulatory light chain (RLC) is notExpand

An alternative form of paraptosis-like cell death, triggered by TAJ/TROY and enhanced by PDCD5 overexpression
Accumulating reports demonstrate that apoptosis does not explain all the forms of programmed cell death (PCD), particularly in individual development and neurodegenerative disease. Recently, a novelExpand

Regulation of EGF receptor signaling by the MARVEL domain‐containing protein CKLFSF8
It is known that chemokine‐like factor superfamily 8 (CKLFSF8), a member of the CKLF superfamily, has four putative transmembrane regions and a MARVEL domain. Its structure is similar to TM4SF11Expand
