Gibbon genome and the fast karyotype evolution of small apes.
Portland, United States. In Nature, Oct 2014
Finally, we identify signatures of positive selection in genes important for forelimb development (TBX5) and connective tissues (COL1A1) that may have been involved in the adaptation of gibbons to their arboreal habitat.
Mouse models for the evaluation of osteocyte functions.
Nagasaki, Japan. In J Bone Metab, Feb 2014
Overexpression of Bcl-2 in osteoblasts using 2.3 kb collagen type I alpha1 (COL1A1) promoter causes osteocyte apoptosis due to the severe reduction in the number of osteocyte processes, resulting in the disruption of both intracellular and extracellular communication systems.
