A c-Myc-transcribed long noncoding RNA namely LAST (LncRNA-assisted stabilization of transcripts) collaborates with a cellular factor CNBP to promote the stability of CCND1/cyclin D1 mRNA post-transcriptionally, ensuring the proper G1/Sphase transition of the cell cycle.
A link between chronic stress and organ dysfunction is explained by the gateway reflex, in which brain micro-inflammation at specific vessels establishes a new neural pathway to induce fatal organ failure particularly in gastrointestine and heart.
A versatile invertible gene trap vector is generated and inserted into a defined genomic locus in zebrafish via homologous recombination, demonstrating an efficient genetic approach to performing conditional knockout analysis.
Molecular profiling of annelid myocytes reveals that the last common protostome-deuterostome ancestor already possessed a dual musculature, with visceral smooth muscles ensuring digestion and somatic striated muscles ensuring locomotion.
Expression of the transcription factor Wt1 is required in a lateral mesoderm domain to develop the mesenchymal population required for the closure of the pleural cavities and the formation of the diaphragm.
