|CXCL14-like immunoreactivity in growth hormone-containing cells of urodele pituitaries. |

Immunohistochemical techniques were employed to investigate the distribution of a chemokine, namely, CXCL14-like immunoreactivity in the axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) and Japanese black salamander (Hynobius nigrescens) pituitaries. CXCL14-immunoreactive cells concentrated at an area of the pars distalis adjacent to the pars intermedia. We found that these cells correspond to the cells immunoreactive to an antibody against rat growth hormone (GH). Immunoelectron microscopy indicated that the CXCL14-like substance and GH coexisted on the secretory granules in the axolotl pituitary. Western blot analysis of axolotl pituitary extracts revealed the anti-human CXCL14 antibody labeled an approximately 16.6-kDa band that was not labeled by the anti-GH antibody. The CXCL14-like substance in the pars distalis may participate in GH functions in these species.

Intermediate filaments are frequently used in studies of developmental biology as markers of cell differentiation. To assess whether they can be useful to identify differentiating pancreatic endocrine cells, we examined the pattern of expression of nestin, cytokeratin 20, and vimentin on acetone-fixed cryosections of rat adult and developing pancreas. We also studied vimentin expression in mouse embryonic pancreas at E19. Cytokeratin 20 was found in all pancreatic epithelial cell lineages during the entire development of the rat gland and in the adult animals. Under our experimental conditions, therefore, cytokeratin 20 is not an exclusive marker of rat duct cells. Nestin was detected exclusively in stromal cells either in the adult or developing rat pancreas. Vimentin was observed within cells located in the primitive ducts of rat pancreas starting from E12.5. Their number rapidly increased, reaching its highest level in newborn animals. Vimentin was also spotted in alpha cells starting from E12.5 but disappeared soon after birth, likely identifying immature or recently differentiated alpha cells. In addition, vimentin was observed in duct and alpha cells of mouse developing pancreas showing that its expression in such cells is not an event restricted to the rat.

|A novel mutation in the GATA4 gene in patients with Tetralogy of Fallot. |

In vertebrates, heart formation which integrates different structures and cell types is a complex process that involves a network of genes regulated by transcription factors. Proper spatiotemporal expression of these factors ensure the highly needed tight control of each step in organogenesis. A mistake at any step from cell-commitment to valve formation will have a major impact on heart morphogenesis and function leading to congenital heart disease (CHD). Cardiac abnormalities occur with an incidence of one per 100 live births and represent 25% of all congenital malformations. As an alternative approach to linkage-analysis of familial cases of CHD, we started screening familial and sporadic cases of CHDs in a highly consanguineous population for mutations in genes encoding cardiac-enriched transcription factors. The evolutionarily conserved role of these proteins in cardiac development suggested a role in CHD. In this study, we report a mutation in the gene encoding GATA4, one of the earliest markers of heart development. This mutation was found in two out of 26 patients with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), and in none of the 94 patients with different phenotypes included in the study, nor in 223 healthy individuals. The heterozygous mutation results in an amino acid substitution in the first zinc finger of GATA4 that reduced its transcriptional activation of downstream target genes, without affecting GATA4 ability to bind DNA, nor its interaction with ZFPM2.
