Identification of Gender-Specific Genetic Variants in Patients With Bicuspid Aortic Valve.
Québec, Canada. In Am J Cardiol, Mar 2016
Nine genes previously associated with BAV (NOTCH1, AXIN1, EGFR, ENG, GATA5, NKX2-5, NOS3, PDIA2, and TGFBR2) were sequenced in 48 patients with BAV using the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine.
Association of Wnt signaling pathway genetic variants in gallbladder cancer susceptibility and survival.
Lucknow, India. In Tumour Biol, Jan 2016
In this study, we assessed the association of common germline variants of Wnt pathway genes (SFRP2, SFRP4, DKK2, DKK3, WISP3, APC, β-catenin, AXIN-2, GLI-1) to evaluate their contribution in predisposition to GBC and treatment outcomes.
Genetic Landscape and Biomarkers of Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
Paris, France. In Gastroenterology, Oct 2015
TP53 and CTNNB1 are the next most prevalent mutations, affecting 25%-30% of HCC patients, that, in addition to low-frequency mutated genes (eg, AXIN1, ARID2, ARID1A, TSC1/TSC2, RPS6KA3, KEAP1, MLL2), help define some of the core deregulated pathways in HCC.
The cellular story of dishevelleds.
Zagreb, Croatia. In Croat Med J, 2014
These multifunctional proteins, originally discovered in the fruit fly, through their different domains mediate complex signal transduction: DIX (dishevelled, axin) and PDZ (postsynaptic density 95, discs large, zonula occludens-1) domains serve for canonical beta-catenin signaling, while PDZ and DEP (dishevelled, Egl-10, pleckstrin) domains serve for non-canonical signaling.
