Reptin and Pontin Antagonistically Regulate Heart Growth in Zebrafish Embryos
Organ size is precisely regulated during development, but the control mechanisms remain obscure. We have isolated a mutation in zebrafish, liebeskummer (lik), which causes development of hyperplasticExpand

BRG-1 Is Recruited to Estrogen-Responsive Promoters and Cooperates with Factors Involved in Histone Acetylation
ABSTRACT Several factors that mediate activation by nuclear receptors also modify the chemical and structural composition of chromatin. Prominent in this diverse group is the steroid receptorExpand

Rvb1p and Rvb2p Are Essential Components of a Chromatin Remodeling Complex That Regulates Transcription of over 5% of Yeast Genes*
Eukaryotic Rvb1p and Rvb2p are two highly conserved proteins related to the helicase subset of the AAA+ family of ATPases. Conditional mutants in both genes show rapid changes in the transcription ofExpand

Generation of Superhelical Torsion by ATP-Dependent Chromatin Remodeling Activities
ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling activities participate in the alteration of chromatin structure during gene regulation. All have DNA- or chromatin-stimulated ATPase activity and many can alter theExpand

An improved method for the detection of DNA fragmentation.
An application of the Southern blot technique is described which permits the detection of DNA fragmentation due to cell death by apoptosis. DNA fragments were isolated from cell suspensions andExpand

Do drug users use less alcohol than non-drug users? A comparison of ethyl glucuronide concentrations in hair between the two groups in medico-legal cases.
Two groups were selected from the remainder of hair samples that had been tested for drugs at TrichoTech for medico-legal cases: samples that tested negative (drug-negative group; N=42, ageExpand

Direct mass spectrometric peptide profiling and sequencing of single neurons reveals differential peptide patterns in a small neuronal network.
Mass spectrometry (MS) was employed to detect and structurally characterize peptides in two functionally related neurons, named VD1 and RPD2, which form a network involved in the modulation ofExpand

Isolation of a functional human gene for brain creatine kinase.
There is evidence that the gene for the B isozyme of creatine kinase is regulated during cell differentiation, is under hormonal control, and is activated in a small cell lung carcinoma. In order toExpand

Testing for alcohol use in hair: is ethyl glucuronide (EtG) stable in hair?
Purpose : Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a biological marker in hair used to indicate abstinence or excessive alcohol consumption. The main aim of this paper is to evaluate the stability of EtG in hairExpand

Comparison of ethyl glucuronide in hair with self-reported alcohol consumption.
AIMS Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) in hair is a proposed biomarker for alcohol consumption. This study compares hair EtG concentrations with self-reported alcohol consumption data, in individuals with aExpand
