- Potential roles for RUNX1 and its orthologs in determining hematopoietic cell fateW D Tracey
Division of Biology, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena 91125, USA
Semin Cell Dev Biol 11:337-42. 2000..We will review what is known about Runx1 function in hematopoiesis in three model organisms, mouse, frog and fly, focusing on the earliest events of hematopoietic cell emergence in the embryo...
- painless, a Drosophila gene essential for nociceptionW Daniel Tracey
Division of Biology 156 29, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91125, USA
Cell 113:261-73. 2003..An antibody to Painless binds to localized dendritic structures that we hypothesize are involved in nociceptive signaling...
- Response of Drosophila to wasabi is mediated by painless, the fly homolog of mammalian TRPA1/ANKTM1Bader Al-Anzi
Division of Biology 156 29, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California 91125, USA
Curr Biol 16:1034-40. 2006..Our results suggest that the stinging sensation of isothiocyanate is caused by activation of an evolutionarily conserved molecular pathway that is also used for nociception...
- Distinct in vivo requirements for establishment versus maintenance of transcriptional repressionJohn C Wheeler
Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology and the Center for Developmental Genetics, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York 11794 5140, USA
Nat Genet 32:206-10. 2002..Other transcription factors can also establish repression in Rpd3-deficient embryos, which indicates that the distinction between establishment and maintenance may be a general feature of eukaryotic transcriptional repression...
