Gene-gene interaction of ATG5, ATG7, BLK and BANK1 in systemic lupus erythematosus.
Jinan, China. In Int J Rheum Dis, Oct 2015
AIM: Autophagy-related gene 5 (ATG5), ATG7, B-lymphoid tyrosine kinase (BLK) and B-cell scaffold protein with ankyrin repeats 1 (BANK1) are involved in B-cell signaling; several genome-wide association studies detected these genes as candidates involved in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Multiple Changes of Gene Expression and Function Reveal Genomic and Phenotypic Complexity in SLE-like Disease.
Uppsala, Sweden. In Plos Genet, Jun 2015
In addition to association to certain MHC alleles and haplotypes, we identified 11 genes (WFDC3, HOMER2, VRK1, PTPN3, WHAMM, BANK1, AP3B2, DAPP1, LAMTOR3, DDIT4L and PPP3CA) located on five chromosomes that contain multiple risk haplotypes correlated with gene expression and disease sub-phenotypes in an intricate manner.
Systemic Sclerosis is a Complex Disease Associated Mainly with Immune Regulatory and Inflammatory Genes.

Survival of red blood cells after transfusion: processes and consequences.
Nijmegen, Netherlands. In Front Physiol, 2012
THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DATA SUGGEST THAT EFFORTS TOWARD IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF RED BLOOD CELL (RBC) BLOOD BANK PRODUCTS SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON: (1) preventing the removal of a considerable fraction of the transfused RBCs that takes place within the first hours after transfusion; (2) minimizing the interaction of the transfused RBCs with the patient's immune system.
What can we learn from genetic studies of systemic lupus erythematosus? Implications of genetic heterogeneity among populations in SLE.
Seoul, South Korea. In Lupus, 2010
One might assign these candidate genetic factors into several pre-existing biological pathways: (i) innate immune response including TLR/interferon signaling pathways (IRF5, STAT4, TNFAIP3, and TREX1); (ii) adaptive immune response (HLA-DR, PTPN22, PDCD1, STAT4, LYN, BLK, and BANK1) including B, T cells, and antigen-presenting cells; and (iii) immune complex clearance mechanism (FCGRs, CRP, and ITGAM).
