      Causes, consequences, and remedies for growth-induced solid stress in murine and human tumors 

      Stylianopoulos, T.; Martin, J. D.; Chauhan, V. P.; Jain, S. R.; Diop-Frimpong, B.; Bardeesy, N.; Smith, B. L.; Ferrone, C. R.; Hornicek, F. J.; Boucher, Y.; Munn, L. L.; Jain, R. K. (2012)
      The presence of growth-induced solid stresses in tumors has been suspected for some time, but these stresses were largely estimated using mathematical models. Solid stresses can deform the surrounding tissues and compress ...

      Groucho mediates a Ci-independent mechanism of hedgehog repression in the anterior wing pouch 

      Apidianakis, Yiorgos; Grbavec, D.; Stifani, S.; Delidakis, Christos (2001)
      Groucho (Gro) is the founding member of a family of transcriptional co-repressors that are recruited by a number of different transcription factors. Drosophila has a single gro gene, whose loss of function affects processes ...

      Haploinsufficiency of the miR-873/miR-876 microRNA cluster is associated with craniofacial abnormalities 

      Koufaris, Costas; Papagregoriou, Gregory N.; Kousoulidou, Ludmila; Moutafi, Maria; Tauber, Maïthé Thérèse; Jouret, Béatrice; Kieffer, Isabelle; Constantinou-Deltas, Constantinos D.; Tanteles, George A.; Anastasiadou, Violetta C.; Patsalis, Philippos C.; Sismani, Carolina (2015)
      MicroRNA haploinsufficiency has been associated with developmental defects in only a limited number of cases. Here we report a de novo genomic microdeletion that includes the LINGO2 gene as well as two microRNA genes, ...

      Hedgehog restricts its expression domain in the Drosophila wing 

      Bejarano, F.; Pérez, L.; Apidianakis, Yiorgos; Delidakis, Christos; Milán, M. (2007)
      The stable subdivision of Drosophila limbs into anterior and posterior compartments is a consequence of asymmetrical signalling by Hedgehog (Hh), from the posterior to anterior cells. The activity of the homeodomain protein ...

      Signaling mechanisms controlling cell fate and embryonic patterning 

      Perrimon, N.; Pitsouli, Chrysoula; Shilo, B. -Z (2012)
      During development, signaling pathways specify cell fates by activating transcriptional programs in response to extracellular signals. Extensive studies in the past 30 years have revealed that surprisingly fewpathways exist ...
