Endoglin (ENG), a co-receptor for several TGFβ-family cytokines, is expressed in dividing endothelial cells alongside ALK1, the ACVRL1 gene product. ENG and ACVRL1 are both required for angiogenesis and mutations in either gene are associated with Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangectasia, a rare genetic vascular disorder. ENG and ALK1 function in the same(More)
Using immunohistochemistry and SDS-PAGE, we studied the myosin heavy chain (MyHC) composition and fibre type distribution of hindlimb muscles of hopping and non-hopping Australian marsupials. We showed that hindlimb muscles of a bandicoot (Isoodon obesulus, order Peramelomorphia) and a small macropodoid, the brushtail bettong (Bettongia penicillata)(More)
The masseter muscle of eutherian grazing mammals typically express beta or slow myosin heavy chain (MyHC). Myosins in the masseter of 4 species of kangaroos and a slow limb muscle of one of them were compared with their cardiac myosin by pyrophosphate and sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) gel electrophoresis, immunoblotting and immunohistochemistry. It was(More)
