RNA-seq transcriptome analysis of extensor digitorum longus and soleus muscles in large white pigs.
China. In Mol Genet Genomics, Dec 2015
Moreover, transcriptome comparison between EDL and Sol identified many muscle-related genes (CSRP3, ACTN2, MYL1, and MYH6) and pathways related to myofiber formation, such as focal adhesion, tight junction formation, extracellular matrix (ECM)-receptor pathway, calcium signaling, and Wnt signaling.
Right ventricular protein expression profile in end-stage heart failure.
Nashville, United States. In Pulm Circ, Sep 2015
In all 12 hearts, the right ventricles (RVs) demonstrated differential expression of 11 proteins relative to the left ventricles (LVs), including lesser expression of CRYM, TPM1, CLU, TXNL1, and COQ9 and greater expression of TNNI3, SAAI, ERP29, ACTN2, HSPB2, and NDUFS3.
Genetic profile of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in Tunisia: Is it different?
Monastir, Tunisia. In Glob Cardiol Sci Pract, 2014
Using the Illumina platform, a panel of 12 genes was analyzed including myosin binding protein C (MYBPC3), beta-myosin heavy chain (MYH7), regulatory and essential light chains (MYL2 and MYL3), troponin-T (TNNT2), troponin-I (TNNI3), troponin-C (TNNC1), alpha-tropomyosin (TPM1), alpha-actin (ACTC1), alpha-actinin-2 (ACTN2) as well as alfa-galactosidase (GLA), 5'-AMP-activated protein (PKRAG2), transthyretin (TTR) and lysosomal-associated membrane protein-2 (LAMP2) for exclusion of phenocopies.
Global Transcriptomic Profiling of Cardiac Hypertrophy and Fatty Heart Induced by Long-Term High-Energy Diet in Bama Miniature Pigs.
Beijing, China. In Plos One, 2014
Quantitative RT-PCR assays identified several important differentially expressed heart-related genes, including STAT3, ACSL4, ATF4, FADD, PPP3CA, CD74, SLA-8, VCL, ACTN2 and FGFR1, which may be targets of further research.
Telethonin and other new proteins of the Z-disc of skeletal muscle.
Trieste, Italy. In Iubmb Life, 2001
Apart from the well-known Z-disc proteins such as actin, cap-Z, titin, nebulin, and alpha-actinin 2, several other Z-disc proteins have been recently discovered, including telethonin and myotilin that have been linked to limb girdle muscular dystrophies.
Competitive binding of alpha-actinin and calmodulin to the NMDA receptor.
Boston, United States. In Nature, 1997
alpha-Actinin-2, a member of the spectrin/dystrophin family of actin-binding proteins, is identified here as a brain postsynaptic density protein that colocalizes in dendritic spines with NMDA receptors and the putative NMDA receptor-clustering molecule PSD-95.
