Defective granulation tissue formation in mice with specific ablation of integrin-linked kinase in fibroblasts – role of TGFß1 levels and RhoA activity

B3 ECKES KRIEGpublications Blumbach K, Zweers MC, Brunner G, Peters AS, Schmitz M, Schulz JN, Schild A, Denton CP, Sakai T, Faessler R, Krieg T, Eckes B. J Cell Sci 123, 872-3883, 2010  

Abstract Wound healing crucially relies on the mechanical activity of fibroblasts responding to TGFβ1 and to forces transmitted across focal adhesions. Integrin-linked kinase (ILK)...   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

A matrilin-3 mutation associated with osteoarthritis does not affect collagen affinity but promotes the formation of wider cartilage collagen fibrils

B11 BAUMANN/ZAUCKEpublications Otten, C., Hansen, U., Talke, A., Wagener, R., Paulsson, M., and Zaucke, F., Hum Mutat. 2010 Mar;31(3):254-63. doi: 10.1002/humu.21182

Abstract Mutations in matrilin-3 have been associated with common skeletal diseases like osteoarthritis as well as with the rare chondrodysplasias MED and SEMD. We...   Read More
