Genetic correlates of neural crest evolution by Daniel Keith Meulemans( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neural crest cells are unique to vertebrates and generate most of the adult structures that distinguish them from their closest invertebrate relatives, the cephalochordates. To elucidate the molecular bases of neural crest evolution, I analyzed the expression, function, and cis-regulation of amphioxus genes with vertebrate homologs having established roles in neural crest development. By comparing these amphioxus genes with their agnathan and gnathostome homologs, I have uncovered genetic changes coincident with, and potentially causal to, the origins of neural crest. I demonstrate that three transcriptional regulators involved with neural crest development, AP-2, Id, and SoxE, were recruited to the neural plate border early in vertebrate evolution--implying that genetic cooption of high-order transcription factors was a major driving force in neural crest evolution. I also show that the function of the Snail protein in establishing the neural plate border was not significantly altered during vertebrate evolution, although vertebrate Snail genes may have evolved novel domains necessary for later functions in neural crest cells. Finally, I began characterizing the cis-regulation of vertebrate and amphioxus Slug/Snail orthologs to determine if divergent aspects of Snail gene expression (i.e., expression in neural crest cells) are reflected in structural differences in Snail cis-regulatory DNA. Using this 3-tiered approach I have begun to define the novel genetic regulatory interactions that drove the evolution of neural crest cells in the vertebrate lineage

Development of BAC libraries and integrated physical mapping of human chromosome 22 using BACs. Annual report, July 1994--June 1995( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BACs and fosmids are stable, nonchimeric, and highly representative cloning systems. BACs maintain large-fragment genomic inserts (100 to 300 kb) that are easily prepared for most types of experiments, including DNA sequencing. The authors have improved the methods for generating BACs and developed extensive BAC libraries. They have constructed human BAC libraries with more than 175,000 clones from male fibroblast and sperm, and a mouse BAC library with more than 200,000 clones. The authors are currently expanding human library with the aim of achieving total 50X coverage human genomic library using sperm samples from anonymous donors
(Developing a physical map of human chromosome 22)( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have developed bacterial F-factor based systems for cloning large fragments of human DNA in E. coli. In addition to large size, these systems are capable of maintaining human DNA with a high degree of stability. The cosmid size clones are called Fosmids and the clones containing larger inserts (100--200 kb) are called bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs). The ultimate test of the effectiveness of cloning and mapping technology is the degree to which it can be efficiently applied to solve complex mapping problems. We, therefore, plan to use the large fragment cloning procedure as well as a variety of other approaches to generate a complete map of overlapping clones corresponding to human chromosome 22. We have thus far prepared two human chromosome 22 specific Fosmid libraries and we are in the process of constructing a chromosome 22 specific BAC library composed of fragments larger than 100 kb. We will further optimize the technology so that libraries of fragments larger than 200 kb can be readily prepared
