DNA hypermethylation of extracellular matrix-related genes in human periodontal fibroblasts induced by stimulation for a prolonged period with lipopolysaccharide derived from Porphyromonas gingivalis.
Tōbetsu, Japan. In J Periodontal Res, Dec 2015
Among these genes, hypermethylation of nine ECM-related genes, FANK1, COL4A1-A2, 12A1 and 15A1, LAMA5 and B1, MMP25, POMT1 and EMILIN3, induced a significantly downregulated expression of their mRNA.
Genetics of cerebral small vessel disease.
Cheju, South Korea. In J Stroke, 2015
These include cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy, cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy, COL4A1-related cerebral SVD, autosomal dominant retinal vasculopathy with cerebral leukodystrophy, and Fabry disease.
Association of genetic variants with diabetic nephropathy.
Lucknow, India. In World J Diabetes, 2015
The risk of developing diabetic nephropathy is increased several times by inheriting risk alleles at susceptibility loci of various genes like ACE, IL, TNF-α, COL4A1, eNOS, SOD2, APOE, GLUT, etc.
Molecular basis of young ischemic stroke.
Milano, Italy. In Curr Med Chem, 2012
This article reviews the existing literature on the most investigated monogenic disorders (CADASIL, Fabry disease, MELAS, RVCL, COL4A1, Marfan and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes) causing stroke in young and a number of candidate genes associated with stroke occurring in patients younger than 50 years.
Childhood presentation of COL4A1 mutations.
Bristol, United Kingdom. In Dev Med Child Neurol, 2012
COL4A1 mutations can present in children with infantile hemiplegia/quadriplegia, stroke or epilepsy, and a motor disorder.
Role of COL4A1 in small-vessel disease and hemorrhagic stroke.
Bar Harbor, United States. In N Engl J Med, 2006
Identified a COL4A1 mutation in a human family with small-vessel disease. Mutation of COL4A1 may cause a spectrum of cerebrovascular phenotypes and that persons with COL4A1 mutations may be predisposed to hemorrhage.
