Temporal ChIP-on-Chip of RNA-Polymerase-II to detect novel gene activation events during photoreceptor maturation.
United States. In Mol Vis, 2009
To demonstrate the use of ChIP-on-chip predictions to find novel gene activation events, four additional genes were selected for quantitative PCR analysis (qRT-PCR analysis); these four genes have human homologs located in unidentified retinal disease regions: Solute carrier family 25 member 33 (Slc25a33), Lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase 1 (Lpcat1), Coiled-coil domain-containing 126 (Ccdc126), and ADP-ribosylation factor-like 4D (Arl4d).
Gene profiling involved in immature CD4+ T lymphocyte responsible for systemic lupus erythematosus.
Anqing, China. In Mol Immunol, 2006
The genes functions were related to a diverse cellular process including: (1) most of these genes were associated with CD4+ T cells functions, particularly related to cellular developments; (2) Ras pathway genes as RANBP10, GMIP, RASGRP2 and ARL5 might be responsible for the abnormal development of CD4+ T cells of SLE; (3) HIG2, TCF7, KHSRP, WWP1, SMAD3, TLK2, AES, CCNI and PIM2 belong to Wnt/beta-catenin way, they could play roles in modulating proliferation and differentiation of T lymphocytes; (4) uncertain viral infections may initiate autoimmunity because high levels expression genes were detected in T4-1s such as TRIM22, IER2, ABCE1, DUT, G1P2, G1P3, HNRPUL1, EVER2, IFNAR1, TNFSF14, TMP21 and PVRL2; and (5) apoptosis relating genes as EIF3S8, SH3BGRL3, GPX4, TOSO, PFDN5, BIN1, XIAPAF1, TEGT and CUGBP2 may contribute to over uploading of selfantigens in SLE cells.
Identification and characterization of LASP2 gene in silico.
Narashino, Japan. In Int J Mol Med, 2003
Some part of the LASP2/ NEBL-TEM7L-ARL8-CACNB2 locus on 10p12 was paralogous to the LASP1-TEM7-CACNB1 locus on 17q12, while the other part of the LASP2/NEBL-TEM7L-ARL8-CACNB2 locus was paralogous to the NEB-ARL5-CACNB4 locus on 2q23.
