Example text

In this application it is proposed to test the hypothesis that neurofibromin functions as a negative growth regulator of astrocytes in vitro and in vivo. Specifically, it is proposed to (1) determine the relationship between neurofibromin expression and p21-ras activity during normal astrocyte development and growth arrest, (2) determine whether decreased NF1 expression results in increased astrocyte proliferation, and (3) generate transgenic mice with a targeted disruption of the NF1 gene restricted to astrocytes.

A better understanding of the genetic causes of type 1 diabetes should lead to novel gene therapies for halting beta-cell destruction during the pediatric period or for preventing the destruction of residual beta -cells in patients who are already affected with the disease. Further, the ability to predict who will develop the disease depends on the ability to test for each of the multiple genes that are thought to be involved. These highrisk individuals represent the best target populations for testing experimental treatment and prevention strategies in the most efficient manner.

To test the hypotheses that lmx1b is expressed in a subset of the cranial mesenchyme, the neural crest, and required in that tissue, we will employ methods of conditional gene targeting in mice. We will extend these studies to test the hypothesis that lmx1b is required for trabecular meshwork formation in adult mice and that lmx1b functions in the adult to regulate important aspects of corneal and trabecular meshwork function. Using these conditionally engineered lmx1b mutant mice, we will explore morphological and molecular changes that accompany selective inactivation of lmx1b in tissues of the eye.
