The characterization of collapsin response mediator protein-1 (CRMP-1) for Arp2/3 dependent actin structures (2016-11-30)The actin cytoskeleton, composed of actin and its binding proteins, drives cell motility, determines cell shape, and is necessary for strong cell-matrix and cell-cell adhesion. Consistent with its critical function in cell ...
Analyzing large-scale chromatin fiber via studying cytology of DNA replication and in vivo immunogold labeling (2016-12-01)The structure of interphase chromosomes remains elusive after decades of research by using chemical, physical and biological methods. Although large-scale interphase chromatin has been observed repeatedly, its high-order ...
Somatic regulation of germ cell development in the planarian Schmidtea mediterranea: the role of systemic and local factors (2016-07-13)Germline development in animals is closely coordinated with those aspects of physiology that are influenced by environmental conditions. The soma acts as a vehicle for the germline and plays a critical role in regulating ...
(2016-07-13)The dynamic nature of the actin cytoskeleton enables the rapid shape changes that are necessary for processes such as wound healing, motility and division of cells. Disassembly of actin filaments is extremely critical for ...
Dissecting the regulatory roles and cellular functions of mammalian ZSCAN5B and primate-specific paralogs (2016-07-11)Certain subfamilies of zinc finger transcription factors (ZNF-TFs), especially those including KRAB or SCAN protein-interaction domains, have evolved rapidly in mammals due to repeated rounds of gene duplication, deletion, ...
