Hereditary Fructose Intolerance
Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, Jan 2016
DIAGNOSIS/TESTING: The diagnosis of HFI is established in a proband (with suggestive metabolic disturbances and clinical findings following dietary exposure to fructose, sucrose, or sorbitol) who has demonstrated either biallelic pathogenic variants in ALDOB on molecular genetic testing or deficient hepatic fructose 1-phosphate aldolase (aldolase B) activity on liver biopsy.
Threonine modulates immune response, antioxidant status and gene expressions of antioxidant enzymes and antioxidant-immune-cytokine-related signaling molecules in juvenile blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala).
Wuxi, China. In Fish Shellfish Immunol, Dec 2015
Dietary Thr regulated the gene expressions of Cu/Zn-SOD, Mn-SOD and CAT, GPx1, glutathione S-transferase mu (GST), nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), heat shock protein-70 (Hsp70), tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA1), glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) and fructose-bisphosphate aldolase B (ALDOB); while the gene expression of peroxiredoxin II (PrxII) was not significantly modified by graded Thr levels.
Aldolase positively regulates of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway.
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. In Mol Cancer, 2013
Here we report that ALDOC, Aldolase A (ALDOA) and Aldolase B (ALDOB) activate Wnt signaling in a GSK-3β-dependent mechanism, by disrupting the GSK-3β-Axin interaction and targeting Axin to the dishevelled (Dvl)-induced signalosomes that positively regulate the Wnt pathway thus placing the Aldolase proteins as novel Wnt signaling regulators.
Inhibition of hepatocyte nuclear factor 1 and 4 alpha (HNF1α and HNF4α) as a mechanism of arsenic carcinogenesis.
Barcelona, Spain. In Arch Toxicol, 2013
Results show a consistent down-regulation of HNF1α and HNF4α under a scenario of exposure where HepG2 cells (1) gained resistance to arsenic-induced toxicity/apoptosis, (2) attained loss of tissue-specific features (as shown by the observed down-regulation of ALDOB, PEPCK and CYP1A2, triggering of the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition program and the hypersecretion of matrix metalloproteinase-2 and 9), (3) failed to maintain balanced expression of the "stemness" genes C-MYC, OCT3/4, LIN28 and NOTCH2 and (4) showed glucose metabolism impairment.
Screening and identification of differentially expressed genes in goose hepatocytes exposed to free fatty acid.
China. In J Cell Biochem, 2011
Meanwhile, 13 clones similar to the genes DGAT-1, ACSL1, DHRS7, PPARα, L-FABP, DGAT-2, PCK, ACSL3, CPT-1, A-FABP, PPARβ, MAT, and ALDOB had significantly higher expression levels in the hepatocytes treated with FFA mixtures.
