PURPOSE In an effort to assess the characteristics of mutation induced by different linear energy transfer (LET) radiation in higher plants, the mutational effects of carbon-ion beams and gamma-rays were investigated in Arabidopsis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The rpsL (Escherichia coli ribosomal protein small subunit S12) transgenic Arabidopsis(More)
The p53 family member p73 plays a critical role in brain development. p73 knockout mice exhibit a number of deficits in the nervous system, such as neuronal death, hydrocephalus, hippocampal dysgenesis, and pheromonal defects. Among these phenotypes, the mechanisms of hydrocephalus remain unknown. In this study, we generated a p73 knock-in (KI) mutant mouse(More)
