p53 and TAp63 promote keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation in breeding tubercles of the zebrafish

A9 HAMMERSCHMIDTpublications Fischer B, Metzger M, Richardson R, Knyphausen P, Ramezani T, Franzen R, Schmelzer E, Bloch W, Carney TJ, Hammerschmidt M; PLoS Genet. 2014 Jan;10(1):e1004048. doi: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004048. Epub 2014 Jan 9.

Abstract p63 is a multi-isoform member of the p53 family of transcription factors. There is compelling genetic evidence that ΔNp63 isoforms are needed for...   Read More

Adult zebrafish as a model system for cutaneous wound-healing research

A9 HAMMERSCHMIDTB7 EMINGpublicationsRichardson R, Slanchev K, Kraus C, Knyphausen P, Eming S, Hammerschmidt M; J Invest Dermatol. 2013 Jun;133(6):1655-65. doi: 10.1038/jid.2013.16. Epub 2013 Jan 16.

Abstract Upon injury, the skin must quickly regenerate to regain its barrier function. In mammals, wound healing is rapid and scar free during embryogenesis,...   Read More

Hemicentin 2 and Fibulin 1 are required for epidermal-dermal junction formation and fin mesenchymal cell migration during zebrafish development

A9 HAMMERSCHMIDTpublicationsFeitosa, N. M., Zhang, J., Carney, T.J., Metzger, M., Korzh, V., Bloch, W. and Hammerschmidt, M., Dev Biol. 2012 Sep 15;369(2):235-48. doi: 10.1016/j.ydbio.2012.06.023. Epub 2012 Jul 6.

Abstract Hemicentin 1 (Hmcn1) and Hemicentin 2 (Hmcn2) belong to the fibulin family of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins that play pivotal roles during development...   Read More

Basement membrane diseases in zebrafish

A9 HAMMERSCHMIDTpublications Feitosa, N., Richardson, R., Bloch, W. and Hammerschmidt, M; Methods Cell Biol. 105, 191-222

Abstract Basement membranes (BMs) are a complex, sheet-like network of specialized extracellular matrix that underlies epithelial cells and surrounds muscle cells. They provide adherence...   Read More

Genetic analysis of fin development in zebrafish identifies Furin and Hemicentin1 as potential novel Fraser Syndrome disease genes

A9 HAMMERSCHMIDTB2 WAGENER/ PAULSSONpublications Carney, T. J., Feitosa, N., Sonntag, C., Slanchev, K., Kluger, J., Kiyozumi, D., Gebauer, J., Coffin Talbot, J., Kimmel, C.B., Sekiguchi, K., Wagener, R., Schwarz, R., Ingham, P.I. and Hammerschmidt, M. PLoS Genet. 6, e1000907

Abstract Using forward genetics, we have identified the genes mutated in two classes of zebrafish fin mutants. The mutants of the first class are...   Read More

Zebrafish grainyhead-like1 is a common marker of different non-keratinocyte epidermal cell lineages, which segregate from each other in a Foxi3-dependent manner

A9 HAMMERSCHMIDTpublications Jänicke, M., Renisch, B. and Hammerschmidt, M. Int. J. Dev. Biol. 54, 837-850.

Abstract Grainyhead/CP2 transcription factor family members are widely conserved among the animal kingdom and have been implicated in different developmental processes. Thus far, nothing...   Read More
