Species-specific endogenous retroviruses shape the transcriptional network of the human tumor suppressor protein p53
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2007-11-20)
Thousands of human mobile element fragments undergo strong purifying selection near developmental genes.
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2007-05)
At least 5% of the human genome predating the mammalian radiation is thought to have evolved under purifying selection, yet protein-coding and related untranslated exons occupy at most 2% of the genome. Thus, the majority ...
A nucleosome-guided map of transcription factor binding sites in yeast.
(PLoS Comput Biol, 2007-11)
Finding functional DNA binding sites of transcription factors (TFs) throughout the genome is a crucial step in understanding transcriptional regulation. Unfortunately, these binding sites are typically short and degenerate, ...
Neural systems for vocal learning in birds and humans: a synopsis.
(J Ornithol, 2007-12-01)
I present here a synopsis on a hypothesis that I derived on the similarities and differences of vocal learning systems in vocal learning birds for learned song and in humans for spoken language. This hypothesis states that ...
Microcircuits for attention.
Researchers who study the neuronal basis of cognition face a paradox. If they extract the brain, its cognitive functions cannot be assessed. On the other hand, the brain's microcircuits are difficult to study in the intact ...
The feeling of looking.
(Nat Neurosci, 2007-05)
Release of outer membrane vesicles by Gram-negative bacteria is a novel envelope stress response.
(Mol Microbiol, 2007-01)
Conditions that impair protein folding in the Gram-negative bacterial envelope cause stress. The destabilizing effects of stress in this compartment are recognized and countered by a number of signal transduction mechanisms. ...
The pallial basal ganglia pathway modulates the behaviorally driven gene expression of the motor pathway
(EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE, 2007-04)
The pallial basal ganglia pathway modulates the behaviorally driven gene expression of the motor pathway.
(Eur J Neurosci, 2007-04)
The discrete neural network for songbird vocal communication provides an effective system to study neural mechanisms of learned motor behaviors in vertebrates. This system consists of two pathways--a vocal motor pathway ...
Role of the midbrain dopaminergic system in modulation of vocal brain activation by social context.
(Eur J Neurosci, 2007-06)
In a well-studied model of social behaviour, male zebra finches sing directed song to court females and undirected song, used possibly for practice or advertisement. Although the two song types are similar, the level of ...
