Genomic regulatory blocks encompass multiple neighboring genes and maintain conserved synteny in vertebrates Kikuta, Hiroshi; Laplante, Mary; Navrátilová, Pavla; Komisarczuk, Anna Zofia; Engström, Pär G.; Fredman, David; Akalin, Altuna; Caccamo, Mario; Sealy, Ian; Howe, Kerstin; Ghislain, Julien; Pezeron, Guillaume; Mourrain, Philippe; Ellingsen, Staale; Oates, Andrew C.; Thisse, Christine; Thisse, Bernard; Foucher, Isabelle; Adolf, Birgit; Geling, Andrea; Lenhard, Boris; Becker, Thomas S. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2007-03-06)We report evidence for a mechanism for the maintenance of long-range conserved synteny across vertebrate genomes. We found the largest mammal-teleost conserved chromosomal segments to be spanned by highly conserved noncoding ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Retroviral enhancer detection insertions in zebrafish combined with comparative genomics reveal genomic regulatory blocks - a fundamental feature of vertebrate genomes Kikuta, Hiroshi; Fredman, David; Rinkwitz, Silke; Lenhard, Boris; Becker, Thomas S. (BioMed Central, 2007-10-31)A large-scale enhancer detection screen was performed in the zebrafish using a retroviral vector carrying a basal promoter and a fluorescent protein reporter cassette. Analysis of insertional hotspots uncovered areas around ...Journal article
