  1. FOLATE AND HOX GENES IN CRANIOFACIAL DEVELOPMENT
    Claudia Kappen; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..Knowledge about the interactions of genes with environmental factors will be important for designing therapeutic strategies and preventive measures against craniofacial defects. ..
  2. MOLECULAR MECHANISMS IN DIABETIC EMBRYOPATHY
    CLAUDIA T KAPPEN; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..These experiments will generate new and comprehensive insights into the function of pancreatic transcription factors and their pathogenic potential in metabolic disease and fetal development. ..
  3. MOLECULAR MECHANISMS IN DIABETIC EMBRYOPATHY
    Claudia Kappen; Fiscal Year: 2000
    ..Finally, the regulation of Isl-1 will be investigated using deletion analysis of the Isl-1 promoter. It is hoped that understanding the effects of Isl-1 overexpression will lead to new reagents to study diabetic embryopathy. ..
  4. Genetic dissection of skeletal patterning
    Claudia Kappen; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..The identification of modifier loci that act on skeletal patterning will reveal new molecular mechanisms in skeletal development and has important implications for the evolution of vertebrate body plans. ..
  5. Genome-wide discovery of beta cell gene control elements
    Claudia Kappen; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..Together, our studies will show how speck gene expression is achieved in beta cells and provide a framework to integrate gene transcription and beta cell biology. ..
