Mice deficient for the homeobox gene Six1 display defects in limb muscles consistent with the Six1 expression in myogenic cells. In addition to its myogenic expression domain, Six1 has been described as being located in digit tendons and as being associated with connective tissue patterning in mouse limbs. With the aim of determining a possible involvement(More)
It is now clearly established that alpha-2 adrenergic receptors can be subdivided in three pharmacological subtypes (alpha-2A, alpha-2B and alpha-2C) encoded by distinct genes (alpha 2C10, alpha 2C2 and alpha 2C4, respectively, in humans). Whereas the study of the regulation of the human alpha-2A adrenergic receptor and of the promoter region of the alpha(More)
Coronary artery disease represents the leading cause of mortality in the developed world. Percutaneous coronary intervention involving stent placement remains disadvantaged by restenosis or thrombosis. Vascular gene therapy-based methods may be approached, but lack a vascular gene delivery vector. We report a safe and efficient long-term transduction of rat(More)
