  1. Hung C, Li C. Identification and phylogenetic analyses of the protein arginine methyltransferase gene family in fish and ascidians. Gene. 2004;340:179-87 pubmed
    ..All other PRMT genes including PRMT1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and HRMT1L3 clustered in the other branch, probably represent the genes for the type I activity. ..
  2. Liu Y, Guo L. Endothelium is required for the promotion of interrenal morphogenetic movement during early zebrafish development. Dev Biol. 2006;297:44-58 pubmed
    ..We thus conclude that endothelial signaling is involved in the morphogenetic movement of early interrenal tissue. ..
  3. Liu Y, Liu H, Tu L, Lin C, Hsiao K, Pan H. Zebrafish muscleblind-like genes: identification, structural features and expression. Comp Biochem Physiol B Biochem Mol Biol. 2008;151:118-24 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results reveal the expression pattern of various mbnl spliceforms for the first time and suggest that they may play specific roles during fish development. ..
  4. Weng Y, Hsieh D, Kuo W, Lai T, Hsu H, Tsai C, et al. E4BP4 is a cardiac survival factor and essential for embryonic heart development. Mol Cell Biochem. 2010;340:187-94 pubmed publisher
    ..Based on these results, we conclude that E4BP4 plays as a survival factor in heart and E4BP4 is essential for proper embryonic heart development. ..
  5. Chen H, Yang H, Hsieh D, Liu Z, Tsai K. Zebrafish sod1 and sp1 expression are modulated by the copper ATPase gene atp7a in response to intracellular copper status. Chem Biol Interact. 2011;189:192-7 pubmed publisher
    ..This is the first report to demonstrate a hierarchic gene expression of copper homeostatic genes between atp7a, sp1 and sod1 in zebrafish. ..
  6. Chou C, Chiu C, Liu Y. Fibronectin mediates correct positioning of the interrenal organ in zebrafish. Dev Dyn. 2013;242:432-43 pubmed publisher
    ..However, how Fn is involved in organ formation of the adrenal gland remains unclear...
  7. Lin Y, Tsai Y, Liu Y, Cheng Y, Hung C, Lee Y, et al. The critical role of protein arginine methyltransferase prmt8 in zebrafish embryonic and neural development is non-redundant with its paralogue prmt1. PLoS ONE. 2013;8:e55221 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results indicate that prmt8 may play important roles non-overlapping with prmt1 in embryonic and neural development depending on its specific N-terminus. ..
  8. Hsu L, Tseng C. Zebrafish calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (cam-kii) inhibitors: expression patterns and their roles in zebrafish brain development. Dev Dyn. 2010;239:3098-105 pubmed publisher
    ..1 was observed in morphants received each one or combined MO. Our results suggest that the two cam-kii inhibitors exhibited distinct expression pattern and may play a minor role in zebrafish brain development. ..
  9. Pan H, Dung H, Hsu H, Hsiao K, Chen L. Cloning and developmental expression of p73 cDNA in zebrafish. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2003;307:395-400 pubmed
    ..Moreover, p73 protein is found in the ovary and testis sections by immunohistochemical staining. ..

    ..We thus identified four new monogenic causes of GAMOS, describe a link between KEOPS function and human disease, and delineate potential pathogenic mechanisms. ..
