Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic disease caused by mutation or deletion of the survival of motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. A paralogous gene in humans, SMN2, produces low, insufficient levels of functional SMN protein due to alternative splicing that truncates the transcript. The decreased levels of SMN protein lead to progressive neuromuscular(More)
Gastrointestinal smooth muscle development proceeds by the linear differentiation of distinct smooth muscle cell phenotypes. In an effort to identify specific gene products associated with distinct smooth muscle cell phenotypes, we performed differential display on smooth muscle myoblasts versus immature smooth muscle myocytes. This analysis identified a(More)
