- Control of endothelin-a receptor expression by progesterone is enhanced by synergy with Gata2Yanping Zhang
Center for Craniofacial Research and Diagnosis and Department of Biomedical Sciences, Texas A and M University Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas 75246, USA
Mol Endocrinol 27:892-908. 2013..Together these results indicate that progesterone regulates Ednra expression by synergizing with Gata2 activity, a previously unknown mechanism. This mechanism may have an impact on pathologies involving the endothelin signaling...
- Specific inactivation of Twist1 in the mandibular arch neural crest cells affects the development of the ramus and reveals interactions with hand2Yanping Zhang
Department of Biomedical Sciences, TAMHSC Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas, USA
Dev Dyn 241:924-40. 2012..To determine the role of Twist1 during mandibular development, we used the Hand2-Cre transgene to conditionally inactivate the gene in the neural crest cells populating the mandibular pharyngeal arch...
- The rescue of dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1)-deficient tooth defects by the transgenic expression of dentin sialophosphoprotein (DSPP) indicates that DSPP is a downstream effector molecule of DMP1 in dentinogenesisMonica Prasad Gibson
Department of Biomedical Sciences, Texas A and M Health Science Center, Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas 75246, USA
J Biol Chem 288:7204-14. 2013..In contrast, the expression of DMP1 was not altered in the Dspp KO mice. These results provide strong evidence that DSPP is a downstream effector molecule that mediates the roles of DMP1 in dentinogenesis...
