Actin-dependent cytoplasmic streaming in C. elegans oogenesis
Oocytes in the C. elegans gonad enlarge rapidly. During the stage of enlargement, they are transcriptionally quiescent, and it is not understood how they acquire large quantities of materials such asExpand

Multiple Levels of Posttranscriptional Control Lead to Germ Line-Specific Gene Expression in the Zebrafish
An important mechanism for the specification and development of the animal germ line is the localization of specific molecules to the germ plasm. Restriction of these molecules to the germ line isExpand

Identification of tissues and patterning events required for distinct steps in early migration of zebrafish primordial germ cells.
In many organisms, the primordial germ cells have to migrate from the position where they are specified towards the developing gonad where they generate gametes. Extensive studies of the migration ofExpand

Vg1 RBP intracellular distribution and evolutionarily conserved expression at multiple stages during development
We have analyzed the expression and intracellular distribution, during oogenesis and embryogenesis, of Vg1 RBP, a protein implicated in the intracellular localization of Vg1 mRNA to the vegetalExpand

Regulation of zebrafish primordial germ cell migration by attraction towards an intermediate target.
Migration of primordial germ cells (PGCs) from their site of specification towards the developing gonad is controlled by directional cues from somatic tissues. Although in several animals the PGCsExpand

spiel ohne grenzen/pou2 is required for zebrafish hindbrain segmentation.
Segmentation of the vertebrate hindbrain leads to the formation of a series of rhombomeres with distinct identities. In mouse, Krox20 and kreisler play important roles in specifying distinctExpand

Oligodendrocyte-Specific FADD Deletion Protects Mice from Autoimmune-Mediated Demyelination
Apoptosis of oligodendrocytes (ODCs), the myelin-producing glial cells in the CNS, plays a central role in demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmuneExpand

Closing ring channels in the C. elegans gonad
The predicted protein sequence for Neurotransmitter transporter like (Ntl) or CG7075 in Drosophila, shares a very strong homology with members of the sodium dependent neurotransmitter transporterExpand
