Bioinformatic prediction of Trichoplax adhaerens regulatory peptides.
Moscow, Russia. In Gen Comp Endocrinol, Mar 2015
Extensive transcriptome, genome, and predicted proteome mining allowed us to predict four insulins, at least five short peptide precursors, one granulin, one paracrine regulator of cell growth, and one complex temptin-attractin pheromone signaling system.
Proteomic analysis of human osteoarthritis synovial fluid.
Pune, India. In Clin Proteomics, 2013
We identified 300 proteins using lectin affinity chromatography, including the glycoproteins afamin (AFM), attractin (ATRN), fibrillin 1 (FBN1), transferrin (TF), tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 1 (TIMP1) and vasorin (VSN).
RML prions act through Mahogunin and Attractin-independent pathways.
Great Falls, United States. In Prion, 2013
Mahogunin ring finger-1 (Mgrn1) and Attractin (Atrn) null mutant mice accumulate vacuoles throughout the brain that appear very similar to those associated with prion disease, but they do not accumulate the protease-resistant scrapie form of the prion protein or become sick.
Biology of epidermal and hair pigmentation in cattle: a mini-review.
Ch'ŏnan, South Korea. In Vet Dermatol, 2007
The switching between the syntheses of melanin components depends on several genes like melanocortin-1receptor gene (MC1r) - also known as melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor gene (MSHr)-, agouti (A), attractin (Atrn) and mahogunin (Mgrn1).
The intricate interface between immune system and metabolism.
Napoli, Italy. In Trends Immunol, 2004
Particular focus has been on certain cytokines [interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma)], hormones (leptin and insulin), neuropeptides (corticotropin-releasing hormone and alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone), immune-related proteins (zinc-alpha2-glycoprotein and attractin and/or mahogany), transcription factors (peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptors) and glucose metabolism.
