Plexin A3 and turnout regulate motor axonal branch morphogenesis in zebrafish.
Philadelphia, United States. In Plos One, 2012
Furthermore, we find that null mutants of the guidance receptor plexin A3 display identical motor axon branching defects, and time lapse analysis reveals that precocious branch formation in turnout and plexin A3 mutants is due to increased stability of otherwise short-lived axonal protrusions.
Presence of histone H3 acetylated at lysine 9 in male germ cells and its distribution pattern in the genome of human spermatozoa.
Gießen, Germany. In Reprod Fertil Dev, 2010
H3K9ac was associated with gene promoters (CRAT, G6PD, MCF2L), exons (SOX2, GAPDH, STK11IP, FLNA, PLXNA3, SH3GLB2, CTSD) and intergenic regions (TH) in fertile men and revealed shifts of the distribution pattern in ejaculated spermatozoa of infertile men.
Secreted semaphorins control spine distribution and morphogenesis in the postnatal CNS.
Baltimore, United States. In Nature, 2010
Mice with null mutations in genes encoding Sema3F, and its holoreceptor components neuropilin-2 (Npn-2, also known as Nrp2) and plexin A3 (PlexA3, also known as Plxna3), exhibit increased dentate gyrus (DG) granule cell (GC) and cortical layer V pyramidal neuron spine number and size, and also aberrant spine distribution.
