Genome duplication in the teleost fish Tetraodon nigroviridis reveals the early vertebrate proto-karyotype
Tetraodon nigroviridis is a freshwater puffer fish with the smallest known vertebrate genome. Here, we report a draft genome sequence with long-range linkage and substantial anchoring to the 21Expand

Overview of Nomenclature of Nuclear Receptors
Nuclear receptor pharmacology has, to a certain extent, led the way, compared with other receptor systems, in the appreciation that ligands may exert very diverse pharmacology, based on theirExpand

Principles for modulation of the nuclear receptor superfamily
Nuclear receptors are major targets for drug discovery and have key roles in development and homeostasis, as well as in many diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cancer. This review provides aExpand

The genome of the model beetle and pest Tribolium castaneum
Tribolium castaneum is a member of the most species-rich eukaryotic order, a powerful model organism for the study of generalized insect development, and an important pest of stored agriculturalExpand

Evidence for two distinct functional glucocorticoid receptors in teleost fish.
Using RT-PCR with degenerated primers followed by screening of a rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) intestinal cDNA library, we have isolated from the rainbow trout a new corticosteroid receptorExpand

Genome sequence of the metazoan plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita
Plant-parasitic nematodes are major agricultural pests worldwide and novel approaches to control them are sorely needed. We report the draft genome sequence of the root-knot nematode MeloidogyneExpand

From carrot to clinic: an overview of the retinoic acid signaling pathway
Vitamin A is essential for the formation and maintenance of many body tissues. It is also important for embryonic growth and development and can act as a teratogen at critical periods of development.Expand

Molecular Characterization of Three Estrogen Receptor Forms in Zebrafish: Binding Characteristics, Transactivation Properties, and Tissue Distributions1
Abstract There are two estrogen receptor (ER) subtypes in fish, ERα and ERβ, and increasing evidence that the ERβ subtype has more than one form. However, there is little information on theExpand

Evolutionary genomics of nuclear receptors: from twenty-five ancestral genes to derived endocrine systems.
Bilaterian animals are notably characterized by complex endocrine systems. The receptors for many steroids, retinoids, and other hormones belong to the superfamily of nuclear receptors, which areExpand

DMRT1 expression during gonadal differentiation and spermatogenesis in the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss.
DMRT1 has been suggested to be the first conserved gene involved in sex differentiation found from invertebrates to human. To gain insight on its implication for fish gonadal differentiation, weExpand
