Expression of DMP1 in the developing mouse tongue embryo.
Tokyo, Japan. In Ann Anat, Jul 2015
We also detected the mRNA abundance of tongue morphogenesis markers such as FGF6, TGF-β1, Collagen I, osteocalcin, chondromodulin 1, tenomodulin, Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), caspase-3, and Aifm from embryonic stages by real-time RT-PCR.
Defects in tendon, ligament, and enthesis in response to genetic alterations in key proteoglycans and glycoproteins: a review.
Toronto, Canada. In Arthritis, 2012
The genes reviewed are for small leucine-rich proteoglycans (lumican, fibromodulin, biglycan, decorin, and asporin); dermatan sulfate epimerase (Dse) that alters structure of glycosaminoglycan and hence the function of small leucine-rich proteoglycans by converting glucuronic to iduronic acid; matricellular proteins (thrombospondin 2, secreted phosphoprotein 1 (Spp1), secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (Sparc), periostin, and tenascin X) including human tenascin C variants; and others, such as tenomodulin, leukocyte cell derived chemotaxin 1 (chondromodulin-I, ChM-I), CD44 antigen (Cd44), lubricin (Prg4), and aggrecan degrading gene, a disintegrin-like and metallopeptidase (reprolysin type) with thrombospondin type 1 motif, 5 (Adamts5).
Antiangiogenic and anticancer molecules in cartilage.
Saint Louis, United States. In Expert Rev Mol Med, 2011
Of these components, a few such as thrombospondin-1, chondromodulin-1, the type XVIII-derived endostatin, SPARC (secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine) and the type II collagen-derived N-terminal propeptide (PIIBNP) have demonstrated antiangiogenic or antitumour properties in vitro and in vivo preclinical trials that involve several complicated mechanisms that are not completely understood.
Altered fracture callus formation in chondromodulin-I deficient mice.
Tokushima, Japan. In Bone, 2008
results suggest that Chm-I is involved in hypertrophic maturation of periosteal chondrocytes. Although a direct effect of Chm-I on bones is still unclear, bony callus formation was increased while external cartilaginous callus decreased in Chm1(-/-) mice
