Unravelling the immunological roles of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4) activity and/or structure homolog (DASH) proteins.
Stuttgart, Germany. In Clin Exp Immunol, Jan 2016
Apart from DPP4, DASH proteins include fibroblast activation protein alpha (FAP), dipeptidyl peptidase 8 (DPP8), dipeptidyl peptidase 9 (DPP9), dipeptidyl peptidase 4-like protein 1 (DPL1, DPP6, DPPX L, DPPX S), dipeptidyl peptidase 4-like protein 2 (DPL2, DPP10) from the DPP4-gene family S9b and structurally unrelated enzyme dipeptiyl peptidase 2 (DPP2), displaying DPP4-like activity.
Association between Variants in Atopy-Related Immunologic Candidate Genes and Pancreatic Cancer Risk.
Toronto, Canada. In Plos One, 2014
RESULTS: 18 SNPs in 14 candidate genes (CSF2, DENND1B, DPP10, FLG, IL13, IL13RA2, LRP1B, NOD1, NPSR1, ORMDL3, RORA, STAT4, TLR6, TRA) were significantly associated with pancreas cancer risk.
The genome in three dimensions: a new frontier in human brain research.
Worcester, United States. In Biol Psychiatry, 2014
We introduce chromosome conformation capture protocols for brain and compare higher-order chromatin structures at the chromosome 6p22.2-22.1 schizophrenia and bipolar disorder susceptibility locus, and additional neurodevelopmental risk genes, (DPP10, MCPH1) in adult prefrontal cortex and various cell culture systems, including neurons derived from reprogrammed skin cells.
Chromatin-bound RNA and the neurobiology of psychiatric disease.
New York City, United States. In Neuroscience, 2014
Examples of recently discovered chromatin-bound long non-coding RNAs important for neuronal health and function include the brain-derived neurotrophic factor antisense transcript (Bdnf-AS) which regulates expression of the corresponding sense transcript, and LOC389023 which is associated with human-specific histone methylation signatures at the chromosome 2q14.1 neurodevelopmental risk locus by regulating expression of DPP10, an auxillary subunit for voltage-gated K(+) channels.
The dipeptidyl peptidase IV family in cancer and cell biology.
Sydney, Australia. In Febs J, 2010
The dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPIV) gene family, comprising four enzyme members [DPIV (EC 18.104.22.168), fibroblast activation protein, DP8 and DP9] and two nonenzyme members [DP6 (DPL1) and DP10 (DPL2)], are interesting in this regard because of their multiple diverse functions, varying patterns of distribution/localization and subtle, but significant, differences in structure/substrate recognition.
Pathogenesis of allergic airway inflammation.
Omaha, United States. In Curr Allergy Asthma Rep, 2010
Several genes, including ADAM33, DPP10, PHF11, GPRA, TIM-1, PDE4D, OPN3, and ORMDL3, have been implicated in the pathogenesis and susceptibility to atopy and asthma.
