Tuesday September 25, 2012 14:30 - 15:00 @ Auditorium    Guidance of vascular patterning Abstract: My laboratory studies vascular and lymphatic development, with particular interests in mechanisms that direct vascular patterning and guidance. In blood vessels, specialized endothelial cells called tip cells localized at the extremities of growing capillary sprouts mediate guided vascular patterning. Tip cells exhibit... Read More →

University of Buenos Aires
Monday September 24, 2012 16:30 - 17:00 @ Rhodes 8    Chromatin and transcription regulate alternative splicing Abstract: Regulation of alternative splicing (AS) by transcription elongation can occur via changes in the RNA polymerase II (pol II) molecule itself or in chromatin structure. The first mode is illustrated by the effects of DNA damage caused by UV irradiation on AS. The UV effect is p53-independent, does not imply... Read More →

Tuesday September 25, 2012 09:00 - 09:30 @ Rhodes 8    Protecting the Germline Abstract: Setting germ cells apart from other cells in the body is crucial for maintenance of all sexually reproducing species. In Drosophila, primordial germ cells (PGCs) from under the control of maternally synthesized germ plasm, while somatic cellularization relies on new, zygotic transcription. Like mice and other species, Drosophila PGCs... Read More →
