Structural and molecular regulation of lung maturation by intratracheal VEGF administration in the normally grown and placentally restricted fetus.
Adelaide, Australia. In J Physiol, 05 Dec 2015
We examined the effect on expression of genes regulating VEGF signalling (FLK and KDR), angiogenesis (ANGTP1, AQP1, ADM), alveolarisation (MMP2, MMP9, TIMP1, COL1A1, ELN), proliferation (IGR1, IGF2, IGF1R, MKI67, PCNA), inflammation (CCL2, CCL4, IL1B, TNFA, TGFB1, IL10) and surfactant maturation (SFTP-A, SFTP-B, SFTP-C, SFTP-D, PCYT1A, LPCAT, LAMP3, ABCA3).
Esophageal Cancer Epigenomics and Integrome Analysis of Genome-Wide Methylation and Expression in High Risk Northeast Indian Population.
New Delhi, India. In Omics, 23 Nov 2015
These included four genes (PTK2, RND1, RND3, and UBL3) with promoter hypermethylation and downregulation, and 19 genes (SEMG2, CD97, CTNND2, CADM3, OMD, NEFM, FBN2, CTNNB1, DLX6, UGT2B4, CCDC80, PZP, SERPINA4, TNFSF13B, NPC1, COL1A1, TAC3, BMP8A, and IL22RA2) with promoter hypomethylation and upregulation.
Osteoarthritis year in review 2014: genetics and genomics.
Lárisa, Greece. In Osteoarthritis Cartilage, Dec 2014
In OA synovium elevation of collagens and cross-linking enzymes (COL1A1, COL5A1, PLOD2, LOX and TIMP1) responsive to TGF-β was found as well as differential expression pattern between different areas of the osteoarthritic synovial membrane.
Gibbon genome and the fast karyotype evolution of small apes.
Portland, United States. In Nature, Oct 2014
Finally, we identify signatures of positive selection in genes important for forelimb development (TBX5) and connective tissues (COL1A1) that may have been involved in the adaptation of gibbons to their arboreal habitat.
