Systematic analysis of copy number variants of a large cohort of orofacial cleft patients identifies candidate genes for orofacial clefts.
Nijmegen, Netherlands. In Hum Genet, Jan 2016
Our analyses of these overlapping CNVs identified two genes known to be causative for human OFCs, SATB2 and MEIS2, and 12 genes (DGCR6, FGF2, FRZB, LETM1, MAPK3, SPRY1, THBS1, TSHZ1, TTC28, TULP4, WHSC1, WHSC2) that are associated with OFC or orofacial development.
Genetic variants associated with disordered eating.
Adelaide, Australia. In Int J Eat Disord, 2013
The current results implicate the following genes: CLEC5A, LOC136242, TSHZ1, and SYTL5 for the AN spectrum phenotype; NT5C1B for the BN spectrum phenotype; and ATP8A2 for the disordered eating behaviors phenotype.
Ureter myogenesis: putting Teashirt into context.
London, United Kingdom. In J Am Soc Nephrol, 2010
The Teashirt gene family was first identified in Drosophila where Teashirt (Tsh) protein acts as a transcription factor directing embryonic anterior-posterior patterning and leg and eye development.
Regulation and formation of the Drosophila salivary glands.
Baltimore, United States. In Ann N Y Acad Sci, 1998
However, other known proteins, including the homeotic protein Abdominal-B, the unusual zinc finger protein Teashirt, and the secreted signaling molecule Decapentaplegic (a TGF-beta family member), limit the recruitment of SCR-expressing cells to salivary glands.
