A comprehensive analysis of the human placenta transcriptome.
Little Rock, United States. In Placenta, 2014
To identify genes that were highly expressed and unique to the placenta we compared placental RNA-seq data to data from 7 other tissues (adipose, breast, hear, kidney, liver, lung, and smooth muscle) and identified several genes novel to placental biology (QSOX1, DLG5, and SEMA7A).
TNF-alpha and melphalan modulate a specific group of early expressed genes in a murine melanoma model.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Cytokine, 2013
In our model we found that the treatments regulate genes that play important roles in tumorigenesis such as cell adhesion (Pard3, Pecam1, Ilk, and Dlg5), proliferation (Tcfe3 and Polr1e), cell motility (Kifap3, Palld, and Arhgef6), apoptosis (Bcl2l11), and angiogenesis (Flt1 and Ptprj).
The genetics of Crohn's disease.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Annu Rev Genomics Hum Genet, 2008
These loci encode genes involved in a number of homeostatic mechanisms: innate pattern recognition receptors (NOD2/CARD15, TLR4, CARD9), the differentiation of Th17-lymphocytes (IL-23R, JAK2, STAT3, CCR6, ICOSLG), autophagy (ATG16L1, IRGM, LRRK2), maintenance of epithelial barrier integrity (IBD5, DLG5, PTGER4, ITLN1, DMBT1, XBP1), and the orchestration of the secondary immune response (HLA-region, TNFSF15/TL1A, IRF5, PTPN2, PTPN22, NKX2-3, IL-12B, IL-18RAP, MST1).
The role of genetics in inflammatory bowel disease.
Leuven, Belgium. In Curr Drug Targets, 2008
Genome-wide linkage studies pointed towards more than 10 chromosomal regions and fine-mapping of these regions led to the identification of a number of genes, including CARD15 (NOD2), DLG5, OCTN1 and 2, TLR4 and CARD4 (NOD1).
Genes, diet and inflammatory bowel disease.
Auckland, New Zealand. In Mutat Res, 2007
Other implicated genes may affect mucosal cell polarity (Drosophila discs large homologue 5, DLG5) or mucosal transporter function (sodium dependent organic cation transporters, SLC22A4 and SLC22A5).
