    The ability of germ cells to carry out a gene regulatory program distinct from the surrounding somatic tissue, and their capacity to specify an entire new organism has made them a focus of many studies that seek to understand how specific regulatory mechanisms, particularly post-transcriptional...

    The human telomerase catalytic subunit (hTCS) is a ribonucleoprotein which synthesizes telomere repeats on the ends of chromosomes. Telomerase activity is thought to be essential in maintaining normal telomere length in immortal (cancer) and germ cells. The objective of this study was to...

    DICER1 is an endoribonuclease responsible for the production of mature microRNAs which are small, single-stranded RNA molecules that regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally by binding to mRNA and repressing the expression of target genes. Germ-line mutations in DICER1 are responsible for...

    The formation of a fully developed gamete from an undifferentiated germ cell requires progression through numerous developmental stages and cell fate decisions. The precise timing and level of gene expression guides cells through these stages. Translational regulation is highly utilized in the...

    The regulation of antagonistic OVO isoforms is critical for germline formation and differentiation in Drosophila. However, little is known about genes related to ovary development. In this study, we cloned the Bombyx mori ovo gene and investigated its four alternatively spliced isoforms....

    Motivation: Microarray profiling of mRNA abundance is often ill suited for temporal–spatial analysis of gene expressions in multicellular organisms such as Drosophila. Recent progress in image-based genome-scale profiling of whole-body mRNA patterns via in situ hybridization (ISH) calls...

  • Neurophysiological Defects and Neuronal Gene Deregulation in Drosophila mir-124 Mutants. Kailiang Sun; Westholm, Jakub Orzechowski; Tsurudome, Kazuya; Hagen, Joshua W.; Yubing Lu; Kohwi, Minoree; Betel, Doron; Fen-Biao Gao; Haghighi, A. Pejmun; Doe, Chris Q.; Lai, Eric C. // PLoS Genetics;Feb2012, Vol. 8 Issue 2, Special section p1 

    miR-124 is conserved in sequence and neuronal expression across the animal kingdom and is predicted to have hundreds of mRNA targets. Diverse defects in neural development and function were reported from miR-124 antisense studies in vertebrates, but a nematode knockout of mir-124 surprisingly...

    The epigenetic regulation of gene expression by the covalent modification of histones is a fundamental mechanism required for the proper differentiation of germ line cells during development. Trimethylation of histone 3 lysine 9 (H3K9me3) leads to chromatin silencing and the formation of...

    Phylogenetic analysis has yet to uncover the early origins of flaviviruses. In this study, I mined a database of expressed sequence tags in order to discover novel flavivirus sequences. Flavivirus sequences were identified in a pool of mRNA extracted from the sea spider Endeis spinosa...
