Title: "Ninein-KO in mice: potential role in dwarfism and microcephaly?"
Host: Jens Lüders, PhD., - Group Leader - IRB Barcelona - Mechanisms of Disease Programme.
Short summary: We observed growth defects in ninein knockout mice that were reminiscent of human primordial dwarfism. Further analysis revealed developmental abnormalities in bone tissue. I will discuss potential cellular mechanisms that lead to the observed defects.
