Large multiethnic Candidate Gene Study for C-reactive protein levels: identification of a novel association at CD36 in African Americans.
Chapel Hill, United States. In Hum Genet, 2014
In the race-combined meta-analyses, 13 loci reached significance, including ten (CRP, TOMM40/APOE/APOC1, HNF1A, LEPR, GCKR, IL6R, IL1RN, NLRP3, HNF4A and BAZ1B/BCL7B) previously associated with CRP, and one (ARNTL) previously reported to be nominally associated with CRP.
Pleiotropic genes for metabolic syndrome and inflammation.
Saint Louis, United States. In Mol Genet Metab, 2014
They map to genes MACF1, KIAA0754, GCKR, GRB14, COBLL1, LOC646736-IRS1, SLC39A8, NELFE, SKIV2L, STK19, TFAP2B, BAZ1B, BCL7B, TBL2, MLXIPL, LPL, TRIB1, ATXN2, HECTD4, PTPN11, ZNF664, PDXDC1, FTO, MC4R and TOMM40.
Meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies in >80 000 subjects identifies multiple loci for C-reactive protein levels.
Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Circulation, 2011
Our results confirm 7 previously known loci and introduce 11 novel loci that are implicated in pathways related to the metabolic syndrome (APOC1, HNF1A, LEPR, GCKR, HNF4A, and PTPN2) or the immune system (CRP, IL6R, NLRP3, IL1F10, and IRF1) or that reside in regions previously not known to play a role in chronic inflammation (PPP1R3B, SALL1, PABPC4, ASCL1, RORA, and BCL7B).
Isolation of expressed sequence tags of skeletal muscle of neonatal healthy and splay leg piglets and mapping by somatic cell hybrid analysis.
Halle, Germany. In Anim Genet, 2001
By comparison with EMBL/GenBank data we could identify nine porcine homologues to human genes (TATA box binding protein associated factor B TAF1B; B-cell CLL/lymphoma 7B BCL7B; pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase, isoenzyme 4 PDK4; ribosomal protein S10 RPS10; SPARC-like 1 SPARCL1; epithelial protein lost in neoplasm beta EPLIN; N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2 NDRG2; pleiomorphic adenoma gene like 2 PLAGL and, BCL-2 associated transcription factor short form BTFS). Eight fragments correspond to uncharacterized ESTs and 7 ESTs had no significant match with database sequences.
The BCL7 gene family: deletion of BCL7B in Williams syndrome.
United Kingdom. In Gene, 1999
Here, we describe the identification of two related human genes, BCL7B and BCL7C, which share 90% identity to the amino-terminal 51 amino acids of human BCL7A, as well as 41% identity in the same region to Drosophila melanogaster, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Brugia malayi EST sequences.
