Identification of sensory hair cell transcripts by thiouracil tagging in zebrafish

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4619078
PMID: 26494580
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2072-5

[…] ese 21 putative hair cell-enriched transcripts, we identified a homologous mouse gene by either querying the Ensembl database, or by BLASTP similarity. We used this homology information to search the Shared Harvard Inner-ear Laboratory Database (SHIELD), a repository for an RNA sequencing dataset derived from FAC-sorted mouse hair cells [, ]. We found that 16 of the 18 mouse homologs had detectabl […]


Diaphanous homolog 3 (Diap3) Overexpression Causes Progressive Hearing Loss and Inner Hair Cell Defects in a Transgenic Mouse Model of Human Deafness

PLoS One
PMCID: 3575478
PMID: 23441200
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0056520

[…] d to sensory and non-sensory cells . Another analysis confirmed low levels of Diap3 expression close to the threshold of detection in both sensory and non-sensory cells of the cochlea from E16 to P7 (Shared Harvard Inner-Ear Laboratory Database (SHIELD); However, despite severe hearing loss at 24 weeks of age, both lines of Diap3-overexpressing transgeni […]
