BACKGROUND Neural stem cells (NSCs) can be isolated from the adult mammalian brain and expanded in culture, in the form of cellular aggregates called neurospheres. Neurospheres provide an in vitro model for studying NSC behaviour and give information on the factors and mechanisms that govern their proliferation and differentiation. They are also a promising(More)
Mining the transcriptome – methods and applications 3 Valtteri Wirta (2006). Mining the transcriptome – methods and applications. ABSTRACT Regulation of gene expression occupies a central role in the control of the flow of genetic information from genes to proteins. Regulatory events on multiple levels ensure that the majority of the genes are expressed(More)
In order to shed light on the rate and mode of evolution of DNA sequence evolution in the germ line of humans and chimpanzees, we have sequenced 136 kb around the human ZFY gene as well as a total of 180 kb of genomic DNA surrounding the ZFX and ZFY genes on the chimpanzee X and Y chromosome, respectively. The comparison of the orthologous sequences on the(More)
