Five years on the wings of fork head
Since its discovery five years ago the conserved family of fork head/HNF-3-related transcription factors has gained increasing importance for the analysis of gene regulatory mechanisms duringExpand

SHARP is a novel component of the Notch/RBP-Jkappa signalling pathway.
Notch proteins are the receptors for an evolutionarily highly conserved signalling pathway that regulates numerous cell fate decisions during development. Signal transduction involves theExpand

Transcriptional regulation of BMP4 synexpression in transgenic Xenopus
Synexpression groups are genetic modules composed of genes that share both a complex expression pattern and the biological process in which they function. Here we investigate the regulation of BMP4Expand

Overexpression of the transcriptional repressor FoxD3 prevents neural crest formation in Xenopus embryos
Xenopus FoxD3 (XFD-6) is an intron-less gene initially expressed within the Spemann organizer and later in premigratory neural crest cells. Based upon sequence and expression pattern comparisons, itExpand

Axial patterning in snakes and caecilians: evidence for an alternative interpretation of the Hox code.
It is generally assumed that the characteristic deregionalized body plan of species with a snake-like morphology evolved through a corresponding homogenization of Hox gene expression domains alongExpand

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 in the early development of Xenopus laevis
The temporal and spatial transcription patterns of the Xenopus laevis Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) gene have been investigated. Unlike the closely related BMP-4 gene, the BMP-2 gene isExpand

Xenopus POU factors of subclass V inhibit activin/nodal signaling during gastrulation
Three POU factors of subclass V, Oct-25, Oct-60 and Oct-91 are expressed in Xenopus oocytes and early embryos. We here demonstrate that vegetal overexpression of Oct-25, Oct-60, Oct-91 or mammalianExpand

Activin A induced expression of a fork head related gene in posterior chordamesoderm (notochord) of Xenopus laevis embryos.
A gene family encoding the fork head/HNF-3 domain has been identified in the South African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. Screening of genomic DNA and gastrula stage derived cDNA libraries with a DNAExpand

The Drosophila fork head domain protein crocodile is required for the establishment of head structures.
The fork head (fkh) domain defines the DNA‐binding region of a family of transcription factors which has been implicated in regulating cell fate decisions across species lines. We have cloned andExpand
