Eur Heart J. 2001;22:2262-6 pubmed..In a large prospective cohort, carriage of the T allele for the C148T mutation in the beta-fibrinogen promoter gene was not associated with an increased subsequent risk of cardiovascular events. ..
- Davidson A, Ernst P, Wang Y, Dekens M, Kingsley P, Palis J, et al. cdx4 mutants fail to specify blood progenitors and can be rescued by multiple hox genes. Nature. 2003;425:300-6 pubmed..Taken together, these findings demonstrate that cdx4 regulates hox genes and is necessary for the specification of haematopoietic cell fate during vertebrate embryogenesis. ..
- Yamada K, Andrews C, Chan W, McKeown C, Magli A, de Berardinis T, et al. Heterozygous mutations of the kinesin KIF21A in congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles type 1 (CFEOM1). Nat Genet. 2003;35:318-21 pubmed..We identified six different mutations in 44 of 45 probands. The primary mutational hotspots are in the stalk domain, highlighting an important new role for KIF21A and its stalk in the formation of the oculomotor axis. ..
- Wood J, Rogina B, Lavu S, Howitz K, Helfand S, Tatar M, et al. Sirtuin activators mimic caloric restriction and delay ageing in metazoans. Nature. 2004;430:686-9 pubmed..Lifespan extension is dependent on functional Sir2, and is not observed when nutrients are restricted. Together these data indicate that STACs slow metazoan ageing by mechanisms that may be related to caloric restriction. ..
