A recent publication identifies npas4l as the gene defective in the well-known cloche mutant that lacks most endothelial as well as hematopoietic cells. This work poses intriguing questions as to the genetic and molecular nature of the origin of hemato-vascular lineages during early embryogenesis.

The Zon laboratory aims to dissect how assaults to the hematopoietic system cause severe diseases such as leukemias, lymphomas, and anemias. They investigate hematopoietic development and disease using chemical screens, genetic screens, and analysis of novel transgenic lines in zebrafish.
