MicroRNA miR‐137 Regulates Neuronal Maturation by Targeting Ubiquitin Ligase Mind Bomb‐1
The maturation of young neurons is regulated by complex mechanisms and dysregulation of this process is frequently found in neurodevepmental disorders. MicroRNAs have been implicated in several stepsExpand

Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein Regulates Proliferation and Differentiation of Adult Neural Stem/Progenitor Cells
Fragile X syndrome (FXS), the most common form of inherited mental retardation, is caused by the loss of functional fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP). FMRP is an RNA–binding protein thatExpand

Ablation of Fmrp in adult neural stem cells disrupts hippocampus-dependent learning
Deficiency in fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP) results in fragile X syndrome (FXS), an inherited form of intellectual disability. Despite extensive research, it is unclear how FMRPExpand

Inhibition of GSK3β improves hippocampus-dependent learning and rescues neurogenesis in a mouse model of fragile X syndrome.
Fragile X syndrome (FXS), a common inherited form of intellectual disability with learning deficits, results from a loss of fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP). Despite extensive research,Expand

Alcohol Exposure Decreases CREB Binding Protein Expression and Histone Acetylation in the Developing Cerebellum
Background Fetal alcohol exposure affects 1 in 100 children making it the leading cause of mental retardation in the US. It has long been known that alcohol affects cerebellum development andExpand

Adult neural stem cells: response to stroke injury and potential for therapeutic applications.
The plasticity of neural stem/progenitor cells allows a variety of different responses to many environmental cues. In the past decade, significant research has gone into understanding the regulationExpand

Imatinib attenuates skeletal muscle dystrophy in mdx mice
Duchenne‐Meryon muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common and lethal genetic muscle disease. Ameliorating muscle necrosis, inflammation, and fibrosis represents an important therapeutic approachExpand

A simple method of DNA extraction for Eimeria species.
A new, simple method is described for extracting DNA from coccidia (Eimeriidae) oocysts. In our hands this method works well for all Eimeria oocysts and, presumably, will work equally well forExpand
