  1. Quarto N. Molecular cloning and expression study of Xenopus latent TGF-beta binding protein-1 (LTBP-1). Gene. 2002;290:53-61 pubmed
    ..These findings suggest an important role for XLTBP-1 in embryo axis formation. ..
  2. Quarto N, Fong K, Longaker M. Gene profiling of cells expressing different FGF-2 forms. Gene. 2005;356:49-68 pubmed
    ..These results demonstrated that HMWFGF-2 and LMWFGF-2 target the expression of different genes. Particularly, our data suggest that HMWFGF-2 forms may function as inducers of growth inhibition and tumor suppression activities. ..
  3. Menon S, Shailendra S, Renda A, Longaker M, Quarto N. An Overview of Direct Somatic Reprogramming: The Ins and Outs of iPSCs. Int J Mol Sci. 2016;17: pubmed publisher
    ..Here, we review the recent advances in somatic reprogramming and the challenges that must be overcome to move this strategy closer to clinical application. ..
  4. Quarto N, Longaker M. Differential expression of specific FGF ligands and receptor isoforms during osteogenic differentiation of mouse Adipose-derived Stem Cells (mASCs) recapitulates the in vivo osteogenic pattern. Gene. 2008;424:130-40 pubmed publisher
    ..Indeed, this observation further validates ASCs as a suitable resource for skeletal tissue engineering. ..
  5. Quarto N, Pizzo E, D Alessio G. Temporal and spatial expression of RNases from zebrafish (Danio rerio). Gene. 2008;427:32-41 pubmed publisher
    ..Indeed, taking advantage of zebrafish as an excellent viable model to study gene function, this study opens the way to an investigation of the in vivo role(s) of ZF-RNase-1 during embryonic development, as well as, during organogenesis. ..
  6. Quarto N, Wan D, Kwan M, Panetta N, Li S, Longaker M. Origin matters: differences in embryonic tissue origin and Wnt signaling determine the osteogenic potential and healing capacity of frontal and parietal calvarial bones. J Bone Miner Res. 2010;25:1680-94 pubmed publisher
    ....
  7. Quarto N, Longaker M. The zebrafish (Danio rerio): a model system for cranial suture patterning. Cells Tissues Organs. 2005;181:109-18 pubmed
    ..Indeed, the zebrafish represents a versatile and valuable model system for the study of the biogenesis of cranial sutures...
  8. Quarto N, Behr B, Li S, Longaker M. Differential FGF ligands and FGF receptors expression pattern in frontal and parietal calvarial bones. Cells Tissues Organs. 2009;190:158-69 pubmed publisher
    ..Frontal bone also elaborated higher levels of Fgf receptor 1, 2 and 3 transcripts versus parietal bone. Taken together, these data suggest that the frontal bone is a domain with higher FGF-signaling competence than parietal bone...
