"We found that the activity of the Meis1 gene increases significantly in heart cells soon after birth, right around the time heart muscle cells stop dividing.
The research team demonstrated that deletion of Meis1 extended the proliferation period in the hearts of newborn mice, and also re-activated the regenerative process in the adult mouse heart without harmful effect on cardiac functions.
"Based on this observation we asked a simple question: If the Meis1 gene is deleted from the heart, will heart cells continue to divide through adulthood?
This new finding demonstrates that Meis1 is a key factor in the regeneration process, and the understanding of the gene's function may lead to new therapeutic options for adult heart regeneration.
In module 10, however, the targets of MEIS1 become isolated, and many potential regulatory relationships between MEIS1 and target genes also disappear after removing the PCC predicted interactions.
They did this by activating two genes previously found to induce AML, Hoxa9 and Meis1, then injecting the cells into mice.
The immunomodulatory and regenerative properties of human DP-MSCs are reflected in the expression of embryonic stem cell markers like SKIL, MEIS1, and JARID2.
Washington, July 22 (ANI): In an international study led by Mayo Clinic scientists, researchers have discovered the first mutated gene, called MEIS1, which is linked to restless legs syndrome, a common neurologic disorder.
Pluripotency and sell-renewal marker Meis Homeobox-1 (MEIS1) was increased, while Nanog homeobox (NANOG) was reduced in late passages.
There were 3 upregulated HOX genes (Hoxa1, Hox b5, and Meis1) and 1 downregulated gene (Hoxa5) in ALI group.

Among transcriptionally inactive genes co-occupied by Oct4, SOX2, and NANOG, genes that specify transcription factors important for differentiation into extraembryonic, endodermal, mesodermal, and ectodermal lineages (e.g., ESX1L (Extraembryonic, Spermatogenesis, Homeobox-1 Homolog (Mouse)), HOXB1 (Homeobox-B1), HAND1 (Heart And Neural Crest Derivatives Expressed-1), MEIS1 (Meis Homeobox-1), PAX6 (Paired Box-6), LHX5 (LIM Homeobox-5), MYF5 (Myogenic Factor-5), and ONECUT1 (One Cut Homeobox-1)) are present.
