101 Capecchi, Mario R.Reexamination of gene targeting frequency as a function of the extent of homology between the targeting vector and the target locus.Mutations were targeted to the Hprt locus of mouse embryo-derived stem cells by using 22 different sequence replacement and sequence insertion vectors. The targeting frequency was examined at two sites within the Hprt locus as a function of the extent of homology between the targeting vector and the...Cell Line; DNA Transposable Elements; Embryo; Exons; Mice1992-08-12
102 Capecchi, Mario R.Regionally restricted developmental defects resulting from targeted disruption of the mouse homeobox gene hox-1.5.Gene targeting in mouse embryo-derived stem cells has been used to disrupt the homeobox gene hox-1.5. Mice heterozygous at the hox-1.5 locus appear normal, whereas hox-1.5-/hox-1.5- mice die at or shortly after birth. These homozygotes are athymic, aparathyroid, have reduced thyroid and submaxillary...Abnormalities, Multiple; Animals, Newborn; Arteries; Bone and Bones; Cartilage; Esophagus; Gene Expression; Heart Defects, Congenital; Organ Specificity; Parathyroid Glands; Pharynx; Thymus Gland; Thyroid Gland; Trachea1991-04-11
103 Capecchi, Mario R.Removing the vertebrate-specific TBP N terminus disrupts placental beta2m-dependent interactions with the maternal immune systemMammalian TBP consists of a 180 amino acid core that is common to all eukaryotes, fused to a vertebrate-specific N-terminal domain. We generated mice having a modified tbp allele, tbp(DeltaN), that produces a version of TBP lacking 111 of the 135 vertebrate-specific amino acids. Most tbp(DeltaN/Delt...Alleles; Animals, Genetically Modified; Binding Sites; Embryonic and Fetal Development; Evolution, Molecular; Female; Fetus; Immune Tolerance; Male; Mice; Mutation; ATA-Box Binding Protein2002-07-12

106 Gesteland, Raymond F.; Atkins, John F.; Wills, Norma M.rRNA-mRNA base pairing stimulates a programmed -1 ribosomal frameshiftBase pairing between the 3' end of 16S rRNA and mRNA is shown to be important for the programmed -1 frameshifting utilized in decoding the Escherichia coli dnaX gene. This pairing is the same as the Shine-Dalgarno pairing used by prokaryotic ribosomes in selection of translation initiators, but for ...Frameshifting; Escherichia coli; Binding Sites; Base Composition1994

110 Gesteland, Raymond F.; Atkins, John F.; Weiss, Robert B.Slippery runs, shifty stops, backward steps and forward hops: -2, -1, +1, +2, +5 and +6 Ribosomal frameshiftingFrameshift mutations frequently express residual levels of gene activity; that is, they are often leaky. This leakiness can be used as a tool to define the functional components that affect the reading frame during gene expression. Recent technological advances in the capability to efficiently bu...Molecular Sequence Data; Mutation; RNA, Transfer; Frameshifting1987

112 Auduong, Priscilla; Murphy, Kelley J.; Schmid, Aloisia T.Spinal muscular atrophy in DrosophilaSpinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the most commonly inherited form of motor neuronal disease in humans and a leading cause of infant mortality. SMA is characterized by a loss of motor neurons which lead to muscle degeneration, paralysis, and eventual death by respiratory failure. More than ninety-f...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-03-15
113 Capecchi, Mario R.Synthesis of an ochre suppressor tRNA gene and expression in mammalian cells.We have used site-specific mutagenesis to change the anticodon of a Xenopus laevis tyrosine tRNA gene so that it would recognize ochre codons. This tRNA gene is expressed when amplified in monkey cells as part of a SV40 recombinant and efficiently suppresses termination at both the ochre codon separ...Xenopus; Nucleic Acid Conformation; Kidney; DNA Restriction Enzymes1984-11
114 Capecchi, Mario R.Targeted disruption of the even-skipped gene, evx1, causes early postimplantation lethality of the mouse conceptus.Implantation within the mammalian uterus elicits dramatic changes in the growth, differentiation, and morphogenesis of the conceptus. This process is interrupted in mice carrying a targeted disruption of the murine evx1 gene, a homolog of the Drosophila even-skipped (eve) gene. Upon implantation, pr...Extraembryonic; Homozygotes; Drosophila1994-08-15
115 Thomas, Kirk R.; Capecchi, Mario R.Targeted disruption of the murine int-1 proto-oncogene resulting in severe abnormalities in midbrain and cerebellar development.The int-1 proto-oncogene was first identified as a gene activated in virally induced mouse mammary tumours. Expression studies, however, suggest that the normal function of this gene may be in spermatogenesis and in the development of the central nervous system.
