Research activity
Prof. N. Tiso's research activity dealt with the localization and the characterization of human disease genes by linkage analysis, positional cloning, mutation screening and protein interaction studies. In particular, Prof. N. Tiso worked on one form of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy, whose locus (ARVD2) had been previously mapped in Prof. Danieli's laboratory, and she identified the causative gene (RYR2). Prof. N. Tiso' work experience also included systematic mapping of ESTs and human genes by monochromosomal and radiation hybrid panels; cDNA selection from specific sub-chromosomal regions and reconstruction of the genomic structure of human genes by Long-Distance, Alu and in silico PCR. Prof. N. Tiso's present research interests mainly concern signaling pathway analysis and disease modeling in zebrafish, with particular attention to the neural, pancreatic, thyroidal, cardiac and mitochondrial compartment. These studies are carried out by mRNA and morpholino microinjection, microarray/RNAseq/RealTime RT-PCR strategies, single and double whole mount in situ hybridization in zebrafish embryos, xeno-grafts, Crispr/Cas9 genome editing, analysis of mutants and production of pathway reporter transgenic lines.
