SUN1/2 and Syne/Nesprin-1/2 Complexes Connect Centrosome to the Nucleus during Neurogenesis and Neuronal Migration in Mice
Nuclear movement is critical during neurogenesis and neuronal migration, which are fundamental for mammalian brain development. Although dynein, Lis1, and other cytoplasmic proteins are known forExpand

Syne-1 and Syne-2 play crucial roles in myonuclear anchorage and motor neuron innervation
Proper nuclear positioning is important to cell function in many biological processes during animal development. In certain cells, the KASH-domain-containing proteins have been shown to be associatedExpand

SUN1 and SUN2 play critical but partially redundant roles in anchoring nuclei in skeletal muscle cells in mice
How the nuclei in mammalian skeletal muscle fibers properly position themselves relative to the cell body is an interesting and important cell biology question. In the syncytial skeletal muscleExpand

Cell-Type-Specific Alternative Splicing Governs Cell Fate in the Developing Cerebral Cortex
Alternative splicing is prevalent in the mammalian brain. To interrogate the functional role of alternative splicing in neural development, we analyzed purified neural progenitor cells (NPCs) andExpand

Mutations in QARS, encoding glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase, cause progressive microcephaly, cerebral-cerebellar atrophy, and intractable seizures.
Progressive microcephaly is a heterogeneous condition with causes including mutations in genes encoding regulators of neuronal survival. Here, we report the identification of mutations in QARSExpand

Rates, Distribution, and Implications of Post-zygotic Mosaic Mutations in Autism Spectrum Disorder
We systematically analyzed postzygotic mutations (PZMs) in whole-exome sequences from the largest collection of trios (5,947) with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) available, including 282 unpublishedExpand

Nuclear Migration: Rock and Roll Facilitated by Dynein and Kinesin
The nucleus encounters other organelles as well as high cytoplasmic pressures during its migration within the cell. A new study describes how the action of kinesin and dynein motors is coordinated atExpand

Follicular Lymphoma Presenting With Monoclonal IgM And MYD88 Mutation: A Case Report And Review Of The Literature
Abstract MYD88 mutation has been reported in various lymphomas, specifically in lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma. Yet, the mutation has not been reported in primary follicular lymphoma. Here, we present aExpand
