Brachyury, Tbx1, DGS, VCFS
This gene is a member of a phylogenetically conserved family of genes that share a common DNA-binding domain, the T-box. T-box genes encode transcription factors involved in the regulation of developmental processes. This gene product shares 98% amino acid sequence identity with the mouse ortholog. DiGeorge syndrome (DGS)/velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS), a common congenital disorder characterized by neural-crest-related developmental defects, has been associated with deletions of chromosome 22q11.2, where this gene has been mapped. Studies using mouse models of DiGeorge syndrome suggest a major role for this gene in the molecular etiology of DGS/VCFS. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on Brachyury
SMC1 promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition in triple-negative breast cancer through upregulating Brachyury.
Wang et al., Shanghai, China. In Oncol Rep, Feb 2016

Disruption of CXCR4 signaling in pharyngeal neural crest cells causes DiGeorge syndrome-like malformations.
Fournier-Thibault et al., Paris, France. In Development, Feb 2016
Although TBX1 has been identified as the main gene accounting for the defects observed in human patients and mouse models, the molecular mechanisms underlying DGS etiology are poorly identified.
Rare copy number variants and congenital heart defects in the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.
International Chromosome 22q11.2 Consortium et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Hum Genet, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS; velocardiofacial/DiGeorge syndrome; VCFS/DGS; MIM #192430; 188400) is the most common microdeletion syndrome.
Mapping cellular processes in the mesenchyme during palatal development in the absence of Tbx1 reveals complex proliferation changes and perturbed cell packing and polarity.
Green et al., London, United Kingdom. In J Anat, Jan 2016
Haploinsufficiency of TBX1 is believed to be a major contributor toward many of the developmental structural anomalies that occur in these syndromes, and targeted deletion of Tbx1 in the mouse reproduces many of these malformations, including cleft palate.
Factors that coordinate mesoderm specification from neuromesodermal progenitors with segmentation during vertebrate axial extension.
Martin, Stony Brook, United States. In Semin Cell Dev Biol, Jan 2016
I will focus on evidence that the t-box transcription factor Brachyury and its downstream transcriptional targets serve as the primary factors coordinating mesoderm specification with somitogenesis.
Murine Embryonic Stem Cell Plasticity Is Regulated through Klf5 and Maintained by Metalloproteinase MMP1 and Hypoxia.
Boeuf et al., Bordeaux, France. In Plos One, Dec 2015
Furthermore PI3K signaling, required for the maintenance of mESC pluripotency, has no effect on mESC plasticity while displaying a major role in committed cells by stimulating expression of the mesodermal marker Brachyury at the expense of endoderm and neuroectoderm lineage markers.
Transition metal-catalyzed ketone-directed or mediated C-H functionalization.
Dong et al., Austin, United States. In Chem Soc Rev, Nov 2015
While nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur-based functional groups (FGs) are widely employed as effective directing groups (DGs) to control the site-selectivity of C-H activation, the use of common FGs (e.g.
Substrate activation strategies in rhodium(III)-catalyzed selective functionalization of arenes.
Li et al., Dalian, China. In Acc Chem Res, May 2015
To achieve this, directing groups (DGs) are often installed that can enhance the effective concentration of the catalyst, leading to thermodynamically stable metallacyclic intermediates.
Contemporary management of clival chordomas.
Carrau et al., Columbus, United States. In Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg, Apr 2015
Brachyury, a transcription factor in notochord development, seems to provide an excellent diagnostic marker for chordoma and may also prove to be a valuable target for chordoma therapy.
Insulin-like genes in ascidians: findings in Ciona and hypotheses on the evolutionary origins of the pancreas.
Di Gregorio et al., New York City, United States. In Genesis, 2015
In addition, we present data suggesting that the transcription factor Ciona Brachyury is involved in the control of notochord expression of at least one of these genes, Ciona insulin-like 2. Finally, we review the information currently available on insulin-producing cells in ascidians and on pancreas-related transcription factors that might control their expression.
22q11 deletion syndrome: current perspective.
Delil et al., İstanbul, Turkey. In Appl Clin Genet, 2014
Chromosome 22q11 is characterized by the presence of chromosome-specific low-copy repeats or segmental duplications.

A classical brown adipose tissue mRNA signature partly overlaps with brite in the supraclavicular region of adult humans.
Scheele et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Cell Metab, 2013
We demonstrate that a classical brown expression signature, including upregulation of miR-206, miR-133b, LHX8, and ZIC1 and downregulation of HOXC8 and HOXC9, coexists with an upregulation of two newly established brite/beige markers, TBX1 and TMEM26.
