Transformation of undifferentiated progenitors into specific cell types is largely dependent on temporal and spatial expression of a complex network of transcription factors. Here, we examined whether neural retina leucine zipper (Nrl) and photoreceptor-specific nuclear receptor Nr2e3 transcription factors contribute to cell fate determination. We cloned(More)
GAP-43 has been implicated in axonal pathfinding and sprouting, synaptic plasticity, and neurotransmitter release. However, its effect on cortical development in vivo is poorly understood. We have previously shown that GAP-43 knockout (-/-) mice fail to develop whisker-related barrels or an ordered whisker map in the cortex. Here we used cytochrome oxidase(More)
BACKGROUND Cell specific gene expression is largely regulated by different combinations of transcription factors that bind cis-elements in the upstream promoter sequence. However, experimental detection of cis-elements is difficult, expensive, and time-consuming. This provides a motivation for developing bioinformatic methods to identify cis-elements that(More)
