UNLABELLED GenePicker allows efficient analysis of Affymetrix gene expression data performed in replicate, through definition of analysis schemes, data normalization, t-test/ANOVA, Change-Fold Change-analysis and yields lists of differentially expressed genes with high confidence. Comparison of noise and signal analysis schemes allows determining a(More)
A reciprocal translocation involving chromosomes 8 and 21 generates the AML1/ETO oncogenic transcription factor that initiates acute myeloid leukemia by recruiting co-repressor complexes to DNA. AML1/ETO interferes with the function of its wild-type counterpart, AML1, by directly targeting AML1 binding sites. However, transcriptional regulation determined(More)
Oxidative stress is a determining factor of cellular senescence and aging and a potent inducer of the tumour-suppressor p53. Resistance to oxidative stress correlates with delayed aging in mammals, in the absence of accelerated tumorigenesis, suggesting inactivation of selected p53-downstream pathways. We investigated p53 regulation in mice carrying(More)
UNLABELLED The canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway is crucial for blood-brain barrier (BBB) formation in brain endothelial cells. Although glucose transporter 1, claudin-3, and plasmalemma vesicular-associated protein have been identified as Wnt/β-catenin targets in brain endothelial cells, further downstream targets relevant to BBB formation and(More)
