    Dear fellow jedis, Our last paper is out in its final and open access form. It deals with how lysosomes influence Notch signaling and tissue patterning during imaginal disc formation. Quite a tour the force in cell bio, genetics and development! Here is the direct link to the pdf http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/15548627.2015.1134080

    http://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=15298&LID=1093 Metabolic cell biology: CTP synthase, Cytoophidia, Cancer biology and CRISPR Our lab has discovered that CTP synthase is compartmentalised in an enigmatic organelle, the cytoophidium (1-6). Moreover, cytoophidia are detectable in bacteria, yeast and mammals (review see 7). Compartmentation is essential for the localisation of biological processes within a...

    Check our newest paper on Plos Genetics on the development of joints. We found that the bHLH transcription factor dysfusion is a target gene of Notch and controls two important morphogenetic events that direct tarsal joint development such as programed cell death and epithelial cell shape.   http://www.plosgenetics.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pgen.1004621

    Newish Publication: The Groucho Co-repressor Is Primarily Recruited to Local Target Sites in Active Chromatin to Attenuate Transcription.

    by
    Comment
    Debunked the old spreading and silencing models for Groucho-mediated repression - and discovered a few other things along the way.  It was an excellent and hugely enjoyable 3-way collaboration with Aamna and Gene. Also, a good experience dealing with PLOS Genetics. Now to write an epic novel about the backstory to getting...
