Generation of Highly Enriched V2a Interneurons from Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells.
Saint Louis, United States. In Exp Neurol, Feb 2016
Directly after selection, approximately 80% of cells are Chx10(+), with 94% Lhx3(+); after several weeks, cultures remain free of proliferative cell types and mature into normal glutamatergic neurons as assessed by molecular markers and electrophysiological methods.
Recent advances in central congenital hypothyroidism.
London, United Kingdom. In J Endocrinol, Dec 2015
Genetic ascertainment is possible in a minority of cases and reveals mutations in genes controlling the TSH biosynthetic pathway (TSHB, TRHR, IGSF1) in isolated TSH deficiency, or early (HESX1, LHX3, LHX4, SOX3, OTX2) or late (PROP1, POU1F1) pituitary transcription factors in combined hormone deficits.
Genetic Defects in Thyroid Hormone Supply
Madagascar. In Unknown Journal, 2015
This situation can be determined by alterations in genes involved in ontogeny of the thyroid, including PIT1 and PRPO1, HESX1, LHX3, LHX4 and SOX3 as well as by mutation in the TSH-beta or in the immunoglobulin superfamily member 1 (IGSF1) genes.
Screening feature genes of lung carcinoma with DNA microarray analysis.
Wuhan, China. In Int J Clin Exp Med, 2014
The transcription biding site analysis showed that these genes were regulated by LHX3, HNF3B, CDP, HFH1, FOXO4, STAT, SOX5, MEF2, FOXO3 and SRY.
Sixteen new lung function signals identified through 1000 Genomes Project reference panel imputation.
London, United Kingdom. In Nat Commun, 2014
We identify 14 novel loci (P<5 × 10(-8)) in or near ENSA, RNU5F-1, KCNS3, AK097794, ASTN2, LHX3, CCDC91, TBX3, TRIP11, RIN3, TEKT5, LTBP4, MN1 and AP1S2, and two novel signals at known loci NPNT and GPR126, providing a basis for new understanding of the genetic determinants of these traits and pulmonary diseases in which they are altered.
Genetic disorders of the pituitary.
Boston, United States. In Curr Opin Endocrinol Diabetes Obes, 2012
RECENT FINDINGS: Novel mutations have been found in transcription factors involved in pituitary development, HESX1; LHX3; LHX4; SOX3; Prophet of Pit-1; and POU1FI, and in some of the signaling molecules expressed in the ventral diencephalon (fibroblast growth factor 8 and GLI2).
