    ..In line with these observations we also found that Isl1, a critical regulator for specification of the common cardiac progenitor cell (CPC) population, acts upstream of Dkk1. ..

    ..In summary, we provide evidence for a novel nucleolar stress-response pathway involving PPAN, NPM, and BAX to guarantee cell survival in a p53-independent manner. ..

    ..Additionally, we highlight advantages of modeling candidate genes derived from genome wide association studies (GWAS) in Xenopus and discuss commonly used techniques. ..

    ..We present a model that faithfully recapitulates the activity of Wnt11 during dorso-ventral axis formation in Xenopus laevis on the basis of the Wnt switch behavior. ..

    ..We here place Rcsd1 downstream of Wnt11 during cardiac development thereby providing a novel mechanism for how non-canonical Wnt signalling regulates vertebrate cardiogenesis. ..

    ..Boolean networks can be inferred from time-series of gene expression data. This allows us to get insights into the changes of behavior of pathways such as NF- ? B signaling in aged organisms in comparison to young ones. ..
