Idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) syndromes represent about 30% of all epilepsies. They have strong, but elusive, genetic components and sex-specific seizure expression. Multiple linkage and population association studies have connected the bromodomain-containing gene BRD2 to forms of IGE. In mice, a null mutation at the homologous Brd2 locus results in(More)
Immunoglobulin class-switch recombination (CSR) requires activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID). Deamination of DNA by AID in transcribed switch (S) regions leads to double-stranded breaks in DNA that serve as obligatory CSR intermediates. Here we demonstrate that the catalytic and regulatory subunits of protein kinase A (PKA) were specifically(More)
Velo-cardio-facial/DiGeorge syndrome, also known as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, is a congenital anomaly disorder characterized by craniofacial anomalies including velo-pharyngeal insufficiency, facial muscle hypotonia and feeding difficulties, in part due to hypoplasia of the branchiomeric muscles. Inactivation of both alleles of mouse Tbx1, encoding a T-box(More)
