The function and regulation of vasa-like genes in germ-cell development

Genome Biology

Feb 24, 2001

Erez Raz

Abstract

The vasa gene, essential for germ-cell development, was originally identified in Drosophila, and has since been found in other invertebrates and vertebrates. Analysis of these vasa homologs has revealed a highly conserved role for Vasa protein among different organisms, as well as some ...read more

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Adult Stem Cells

Adult stem cells reside in unique niches that provide vital cues for their survival, self-renewal, and differentiation. They hold great promise for use in tissue repair and regeneration as a novel therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.

RNA Helicases

RNA helicases are motor enzymes that unwind RNA and are essential for several RNA metabolism processes including ribosome biogenesis, translation initiation, and pre-mRNA splicing. Defects in RNA helicases are associated with cancers, infectious diseases, as well as neurodegenerative disorders. Here is the latest research.

Gastrulation

Gastrulation is a phase early in the embryonic development of most animals, during which the single-layered blastula is reorganized into a multilayered structure known as the gastrula. Before gastrulation, the embryo is a continuous epithelial sheet of cells; by the end of gastrulation, the embryo has begun differentiation to establish distinct cell lineages, set up the basic axes of the body, and internalized one or more cell types including the prospective gut

Non-coding Variants in Cancer

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements, in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. Here is the latest research.

Deep Homology

Deep homology investigates the genetic mechanisms that are homologous and deeply conserved across a wide range of species in evolutionary developmental biology. Discover the latest research on deep homology here.

mtDNA Transcription

mtDNA transcription generates the necessary RNAs that encode several protein subunits involved in the oxidative phosphorylation process. Here is the latest research. 


Non-coding Variants in Cancer (Keystone)

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. This feed focuses on the latest research on non-coding variants in cancer.
