Diagnostic marker signature for esophageal cancer from transcriptome analysis.
Köln, Germany. In Tumour Biol, Jan 2016
The markers significantly overexpressed already in earlier tumor stages (pT1-2) of both histological subtypes (n = 19) have been clustered in a "diagnostic signature": PLA2G7, PRAME, MMP1, MMP3, MMP12, LIlRB2, TREM2, CHST2, IGFBP2, IGFBP7, KCNJ8, EMILIN2, CTHRC1, EMR2, WDR72, LPCAT1, COL4A2, CCL4, and SNX10.
The EMILIN/Multimerin family.
Italy. In Front Immunol, 2010
Elastin microfibrillar interface proteins (EMILINs) and Multimerins (EMILIN1, EMILIN2, Multimerin1, and Multimerin2) constitute a four member family that in addition to the shared C-terminus gC1q domain typical of the gC1q/TNF superfamily members contain a N-terminus unique cysteine-rich EMI domain.
Mouse chromosome 17 candidate modifier genes for thrombosis.
Cleveland, United States. In Mamm Genome, 2010
Seven genes, Twsg1, Zfp161, Dlgap1, Ralbp1, Myom1, Rab31, and Emilin2, of the 23 genes with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the mRNA-UTR had differential expression in B6 and A/J mice.
Annulus cells from more degenerated human discs show modified gene expression in 3D culture compared with expression in cells from healthier discs.
Charlotte, United States. In Spine J, 2010
Important genes included those related to: 1) the extracellular matrix (ECM) (keratin-associated protein 1-1, hyaluronan synthase 2, and nexin were upregulated; biglycan, collagen type VI alpha 2, thrombospondin 3, laminen alpha 1, fibronectin type III domain-containing protein 1, elastin microfibril interfacer 2, fibulin 2, and nidogen 1 and 2 were downregulated); 2) ECM proteolysis (ADAMTS6 was upregulated); 3) cell proliferation (never in mitosis gene 1-related kinase 3, cell division cycle 2-like 5 [cholinesterase-related cell division controller], RAB42 [member of RAS oncogene family], and cyclin-dependent kinase 6 were upregulated; RAS-like GTP-binding 1 was downregulated); 4) apoptosis (BCL2-like 11 and p53-inducible nuclear protein 1 were upregulated; caspase recruitment domain family, member 10, caspase-1 dominant-negative inhibitor pseudo-ICE, and caspase 9 and FADD-like apoptosis regulator were downregulated); and 5) growth factors, inflammatory mediators, and other genes (fibroblast growth factor 1, pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A, interleukin 1 alpha, and interleukin 7 were upregulated; TGF-beta-induced transcript 1, interleukin 26 and interleukin 1 receptor-like 1, tumor necrosis factor, alpha-induced protein 2, and chemokine (C-X3-C motif) ligand 1 were downregulated).
The EMILIN protein family.
In Matrix Biol, 2000
By using a C-terminal fragment of human EMILIN-1 as a bait in the yeast two-hybrid system, a second family member, EMILIN-2, has also been isolated.
