Garrick, David; Sharpe, Jackie A; Arkell, Ruth; Dobbie, Lorraine; Smith, Andrew J H; Wood, William G; Higgs, Douglas R; Gibbons, Richard J


ATRX is an X-encoded member of the SNF2 family of ATPase/helicase proteins thought to regulate gene expression by modifying chromatin at target loci. Mutations in ATRX provided the first example of a human genetic disease associated with defects in such proteins. To better understand the role of ATRX in development and the associated abnormalities in the ATR-X (alpha thalassemia mental retardation, X-linked) syndrome, we conditionally inactivated the homolog in mice, Atrx, at the 8- to 16-cell...[Show more]
