N(6)-methyladenosine is a prevalent internal modification in messenger RNA and non-coding RNA affecting various cellular pathways. Here we report the discovery of two additional modifications, N(6)-hydroxymethyladenosine (hm(6)A) and N(6)-formyladenosine (f(6)A), in mammalian messenger RNA. We show that Fe(II)- and α-ketoglutarate-dependent fat mass and(More)
The purpose of this study was to characterize the trophic effect of pancreatic duct cells on the islets of Langerhans. Ductal epithelium and islets were isolated from hamster pancreata. In addition, duct-conditioned medium (DCM) was prepared from primary duct cultures that had been passaged twice to remove other cellular elements. Three experimental groups(More)
The epicardium has a critical role during embryonic development, contributing epicardium-derived lineages to the heart, as well as providing regulatory and trophic signals necessary for myocardial development. Crim1 is a unique trans-membrane protein expressed by epicardial and epicardially-derived cells but its role in cardiogenesis is unknown. Using(More)
Endothelial cells form a critical component of the coronary vasculature, yet the factors regulating their development remain poorly defined. Here we reveal a novel role for the transmembrane protein CRIM1 in mediating cardiac endothelial cell development. In the absence of Crim1 in vivo, the coronary vasculature is malformed, the number of endothelial cells(More)
