The immunogenetics of Psoriasis: A comprehensive review.
New York City, United States. In J Autoimmun, Nov 2015
These genes span an array of functions that involve antigen presentation (HLA-Cw6, ERAP1, ERAP2, MICA), the IL-23 axis (IL12Bp40, IL23Ap19, IL23R, JAK2, TYK2), T-cell development and T-cells polarization (RUNX1, RUNX3, STAT3, TAGAP, IL4, IL13), innate immunity (CARD14, c-REL, TRAF3IP2, DDX58, IFIH1), and negative regulators of immune responses (TNIP1, TNFAIP3, NFKBIA, ZC3H12C, IL36RN, SOCS1).
Solid-state NMR studies of proteins immobilized on inorganic surfaces.
Richland, United States. In Solid State Nucl Magn Reson, Sep 2015
Two calcium phosphate proteins, statherin (43 amino acids) and leucine rich amelogenin protein (LRAP; 59 amino acids), have been studied in depth and have different dynamic properties and 2D- and 3D-structural features.
Interaction of enamel matrix proteins with human periodontal ligament cells.
London, United Kingdom. In Clin Oral Investig, Aug 2015
OBJECTIVES: It has recently been shown that enamel matrix derivative (EMD) components (Fraction C, containing <6 kDa peptides (mainly a 5.3 kDa tyrosine-rich amelogenin peptide (TRAP)), and Fraction A, containing a mixture of >6 kDa peptides (including a leucine-rich amelogenin peptide (LRAP))) differentially regulate osteogenic differentiation of periodontal ligament (PDL) cells.
Revisiting MHC genes in spondyloarthritis.
Boulogne-Billancourt, France. In Curr Rheumatol Rep, Jun 2015
Interestingly, some of those new genes, such as ERAP1, ERAP2, and NPEPPS, code for aminopeptidases that are involved in MHC class I presentation and were shown to interact with HLA-B27.
The immunopathogenesis of birdshot chorioretinopathy; a bird of many feathers.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Prog Retin Eye Res, 2015
The first genome-wide association study facilitated novel concepts into a disease mechanism beyond HLA-A29 that includes strong genetic predisposition for the ERAP2 gene that affects antigen processing for HLA class I. Furthermore, patients manifest with pro-inflammatory cytokine profiles and pathogenic T cell subsets that are associated with IL-17-linked inflammation.
OS049. Exome sequencing identifies likely functional variantsinfluencing preeclampsia and CVD risk.
San Antonio, United States. In Pregnancy Hypertens, 2012
Whilst our prior linkage- and association-based positional cloning studies in family- and population-based Australian cohorts, respectively, have discovered novel preeclampsia candidate genes (INHBB,ACVR2A,LCT,LRP1B,RND3,GCA,ERAP2,TNFSF13B), the full complement of causal genetic variation remains largely unknown.
Genome-wide meta-analysis increases to 71 the number of confirmed Crohn's disease susceptibility loci.
Kiel, Germany. In Nat Genet, 2010
A series of in silico analyses highlighted particular genes within these loci and, together with manual curation, implicated functionally interesting candidate genes including SMAD3, ERAP2, IL10, IL2RA, TYK2, FUT2, DNMT3A, DENND1B, BACH2 and TAGAP.
