Loci associated with ischaemic stroke and its subtypes (SiGN): a genome-wide association study.
In Lancet Neurol, Jan 2016
Our results also supported robust associations with ischaemic stroke for four other loci that have been reported in previous studies, including PITX2 (first stage OR 1·39, 1·29-1·49, p=3·26 × 10(-19); joint OR 1·37, 1·30-1·45, p=2·79 × 10(-32)) and ZFHX3 (first stage OR 1·19, 1·11-1·27, p=2·93 × 10(-7); joint OR 1·17, 1·11-1·23, p=2·29 × 10(-10)) for cardioembolic stroke, and HDAC9 (first stage OR 1·29, 1·18-1·42, p=3·50 × 10(-8); joint OR 1·24, 1·15-1·33, p=4·52 × 10(-9)) for large artery atherosclerosis stroke.
Additive Effect of Zfhx3/Atbf1 and Pten Deletion on Mouse Prostatic Tumorigenesis.
Atlanta, United States. In J Genet Genomics, Aug 2015
The phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) and the zinc finger homeobox 3 (ZFHX3)/AT-motif binding factor 1 (ATBF1) genes have been established as tumor suppressor genes in prostate cancer by their frequent deletions and mutations in human prostate cancer and by the formation of mouse prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (mPIN) or tumor by their deletions in mouse prostates.
Basic science and clinical research advances in the pituitary transcription factors: Pit-1 and Prop-1.
Aurora, United States. In Curr Opin Endocrinol Diabetes Obes, 2008
Among these findings include: the effects of the Pit-1 coactivators, GATA-2 and TRAP-220, on the transcriptional regulation of the TSHbeta gene and thyrotropin expression, characterization of a novel pituitary regulator of Pit-1 expression, Atbf1, elucidation of the roles of Wnt and Notch signaling on Prop-1-mediated specification of the Pit-1 cell lineage and gonadotropes, and the identification of regulatory regions of the Prop-1 gene.
Prevalent mutations in prostate cancer.
Atlanta, United States. In J Cell Biochem, 2006
These include the ELAC2 (HPC2), MSR1, and RNASEL (HPC1) genes that have germline mutations in familial prostate cancer; AR, ATBF1, EPHB2 (ERK), KLF6, mitochondria DNA, p53, PTEN, and RAS that have somatic mutations in sporadic prostate cancer; AR, BRCA1, BRCA2, CHEK2 (RAD53), CYP17, CYP1B1, CYP3A4, GSTM1, GSTP1, GSTT1, PON1, SRD5A2, and VDR that have germline genetic variants associated with either hereditary and/or sporadic prostate cancer; and ANXA7 (ANX7), KLF5, NKX3-1 (NKX3.1),
