Poznań, Poland. In Oncol Rep, 30 Nov 2014
These genes were: ITGB1BP3, COL3A1, COL5A2, COL15A1, TGFBI, DCN, LUM, MATN2, POSTN and EGFL6.
Heritable thoracic aortic disorders.
In Curr Opin Cardiol, Jan 2014
RECENT FINDINGS: A classification scheme based on the gene is emerging, those that affect primarily the extracellular matrix (e.g., FBN1, COL3A1), TGF-β signaling (e.g., TGFBR1, TGFB2), or vascular smooth muscle cell contractility (e.g., ACTA2, MYH11).
Genetic determinants of juvenile stroke.
Brescia, Italy. In Thromb Res, 2012
Furthermore, stroke is a well-known complication of several heritable connective tissue disorders, including Marfan's syndrome (FBN1 mutations) and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV (COL3A1 mutations), which predispose to cervical artery dissection, the most frequent cause of cerebral ischemia at young age.
Spontaneous arterial dissection: phenotype and molecular pathogenesis.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 2010
Genetic linkage analysis lead to the identification of mutations in different disease-causing genes involved in the biosynthesis of the extracellular matrix (FBN1, COL3A1), in transforming growth factor (TGF) beta signaling (FBN1, TGFBR1, TGFBR2) and in the SMC contractile system (ACTA2, MYH11).
