    Episode 3: August 2013

    In this episode we hear about the cocktail party effect, the role of psuedogene RNA in the immune response, the genetic origins of a common form of blindness, the flu vaccine, and the origins of schistosomiasis.

    T-box3 is a ciliary protein and regulates stability of the Gli3 transcription factor to control digit number

    Uchenna Emechebe et al.
    The transcription and splicing factor T-box3 is present in primary cilia, regulates multiple aspects of limb development, and interacts with members of the protein complex required for the stability and processing of the Gli3 transcription factor.

    Affinity and dose of TCR engagement yield proportional enhancer and gene activity in CD4+ T cells

    Karmel A Allison et al.
    Pre-existing enhancers interpret T cell signaling strength in an analogue manner to direct quantitative changes in gene expression within the context of an overall digital response.

    Epigenetic modification of the PD-1 (Pdcd1) promoter in effector CD4+ T cells tolerized by peptide immunotherapy

    Rhoanne C McPherson et al.
    Peptide immunotherapy in mice depends upon sustained expression of co-inhibitory protein PD-1 in T cells.

    A mex3 homolog is required for differentiation during planarian stem cell lineage development

    Shu Jun Zhu et al.
    The planarian mex3-1 gene is required for non-stem cell fates and suppresses a stem cell fate in differentiating cells.

    Cell-type heterogeneity in the early zebrafish olfactory epithelium is generated from progenitors within preplacodal ectoderm

    Raphaël Aguillon et al.
    Several neuronal subtypes found in the early zebrafish olfactory placode are not derived from the neural crest, as previously thought, but from the preplacodal ectoderm.

    Coverage-dependent bias creates the appearance of binary splicing in single cells

    Carlos F Buen Abad Najar et al.
    Sequencing and counting RNAs from single cells can create a misleading picture of alternative splicing if too many mRNAs are lost in the process.

    Depleting Trim28 in adult mice is well tolerated and reduces levels of α-synuclein and tau

    Maxime WC Rousseaux et al.
    Loss of a developmentally essential gene in adulthood is tolerated in mice, thus offering potential therapeutic options for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

    KRAB-zinc finger protein gene expansion in response to active retrotransposons in the murine lineage

    Gernot Wolf et al.
    Unbiased ChIP-seq screens and genetic knockouts of large Kruppel associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) clusters reveal that evolutionarily young KRAB-ZFPs play a redundant role in retrotransposon restriction in mice.

    Regulation of X-linked gene expression during early mouse development by Rlim

    Feng Wang et al.
    Single embryo RNA-seq combined with mouse genetics provides a comprehensive view on the roles of Rlim and Xist for the regulation of X-linked gene expression during early mouse embryogenesis.
