Title: Transcriptional Regulation of Cardio-pulmonary Development
Author: Aiyer, Aparna R.
Abstract: Organogenesis is a complex process, disruption of which results in developmental anomalies. In recent years, genetic dissection of the pathways involved in cardiogenesis have shown a striking similarity in molecular mechanisms across species. One conserved protein is dHAND, a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor that is required for normal development of the right ventricle, the pharyngeal arches and limb buds. Loss of dHAND leads to apoptosis in the aforementioned tissues and to embryonic lethality at E10.0. A differential display analysis was performed to identify genes dysregulated in dHAND-/- hearts.
