Chondrogenic potential and anti-senescence effect of hypoxia on canine adipose mesenchymal stem cells.
Anyang, South Korea. In Vet Res Commun, Jan 2016
Also, we found that hypoxia strongly expressed anti-senescence related genes such as HDAC1 (histone deacetylase 1), DNMT1 (DNA (cytosine-5)-methyltransferase 1), Bcl-2 (inhibitor of apoptosis), TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase), LDHA (lactate dehydrogenase A), SLC2A1 (glucose transporter), and DKC1 (telomere holoenzyme complex) and differentiation potential of cAD-MSCs into chondrocytes, than seen under the normoxic culture conditions.
A functional genomics screen identifies an Importin-α homolog as a regulator of stem cell function and tissue patterning during planarian regeneration.
San Diego, United States. In Bmc Genomics, 2014
RESULTS: Along with five previously characterized genes (Smed-cycD, Smed-morf41/mrg-1, Smed-pdss2/dlp1, Smed-slbp, and Smed-tph), we identified 20 additional genes necessary for stem cell maintenance (Smed-sart3, Smed-smarcc-1, Smed-espl1, Smed-rrm2b-1, Smed-rrm2b-2, Smed-dkc1, Smed-emg1, Smed-lig1, Smed-prim2, Smed-mcm7, and a novel sequence) or general regenerative capability (Smed-rbap46/48-2, Smed-mcm2, Smed-ptbp1, and Smed-fen-1) or that caused tissue-specific defects upon knockdown (Smed-ddc, Smed-gas8, Smed-pgbd4, and Smed-b9d2).
Bone marrow failure and the telomeropathies.
Bethesda, United States. In Blood, 2014
Genotype-phenotype correlations show genes responsible for X-linked (DKC1) and severe recessive childhood dyskeratosis congenita, typically with associated mucocutaneous features, and others (TERC and TERT) for more subtle presentation as telomeropathy in adults, in which multiorgan failure may be prominent.
London, United Kingdom. In Hematology Am Soc Hematol Educ Program, 2010
Studies over the last 15 years have led to significant advances, with 8 DC genes (DKC1, TERC, TERT, NOP10, NHP2, TIN2, C16orf57, and TCAB1) having been characterized.
Benares, India. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2009
Four genes, namely DKC1 (codes for dyskerin), TERC and TERT (code for telomerase) and NOP10, have been implicated in the pathogenesis; the short telomeres provide a marker for genetic linkage studies.
