background information of tcof1
Background information of Tcof1

Human chromosome 5q32-33

Treacle

Ribosomal Biogenesis

Nop56p

UBF

treacher collin syndrome
Treacher Collin Syndrome

Mutation on Tcof1

autosomal dominant, craniofacial disorder

Deficient ribosome biogenesis stabilization of p53

Apoptosis of neural crest cells

zebrafish danio rerio
Zebrafish, Danio rerio
  • Advantages
  • Disadvantage

Transparent embryo

Fast reproduction

Development outside

Knockdowns using morpholinos

Less homology to human genes

previous research
Previous Research
  • Confirm mutated Tcof1 apoptosis (P53)
  • Zebrafish: animal model to study TCS
  • Possible rescue: down-regulate p53

Uninjected

some conclusions
Some Conclusions
  • Zebrafish is an efficient model to study Treacher Collin Syndrome
  • Tcof1 involvement in ribosomal biogenesis is still inconclusive
  • p21 is overexpressed when there is mutation with Tcof1
further research
Further Research
  • Confirm that mutation of Tcof1 causes deficiency in ribosomal biogenesis
  • Ways to treat TCS
      • Rescue with p21
      • Down-regulate p21
