Mechanisms of specificity in neuronal activity-regulated gene transcription.
(Prog Neurobiol, 2011-08)
The brain is a highly adaptable organ that is capable of converting sensory information into changes in neuronal function. This plasticity allows behavior to be accommodated to the environment, providing an important evolutionary ...
Functional evolution of mammalian odorant receptors.
(PLoS Genet, 2012)
The mammalian odorant receptor (OR) repertoire is an attractive model to study evolution, because ORs have been subjected to rapid evolution between species, presumably caused by changes of the olfactory system to adapt ...
Unfolded protein response genes regulated by CED-1 are required for Caenorhabditis elegans innate immunity.
(Dev Cell, 2008-07)
The endoplasmic reticulum stress response, also known as the unfolded protein response (UPR), has been implicated in the normal physiology of immune defense and in several disorders, including diabetes, cancer, ...
