Gene expression profiling of DMU-212-induced apoptosis and anti-angiogenesis in vascular endothelial cells.
Zhengzhou, China. In Pharm Biol, Nov 2015
RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: DMU-212 was found to regulate a diverse range of genes, including cytokines (IL8, selectin E, MPZL2, EGR1, CCL20, ITGB8, CXCL1, VCAM1, KITLG, and AREG), transport proteins (TRPC4, SLC41A2, SLC17A5, and CREB5), metabolism (CYP1B1, CYP1A1, PDK4, CSNK1G1, MVK, TCEB3C, and CDKN3), enzymes (RAB23, SPHK1, CHSY3, PLAU, PLA2G4C, and MMP10), and genes involved in signal transduction (TMEM217, DUSP8, and SPRY4), chromosome organization (HIST1H2BH and GEM), cell migration and angiogenesis (ERRFI1, HBEGF, and NEDD9), and apoptosis (TNFSF15, TNFRSF9, CD274, BCL2L11, BIRC3, TNFAIP3, and TIFA), as well as other genes with unknown function (PGM5P2, SNORD1142, LOC151760, KRTAP5-2, C1orf110, SNORA14A, MIR31, C2CD4B, SCARNA4, C2orf66, SC4MOL, LOC644714, and LOC283392).
Alterations of a Cellular Cholesterol Metabolism Network Are a Molecular Feature of Obesity-Related Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease.
Hamburg, Germany. In Diabetes, Oct 2015
This network included 11 BMI-associated genes related to sterol uptake (↑LDLR, ↓MYLIP), synthesis (↑SCD, FADS1, HMGCS1, FDFT1, SQLE, CYP51A1, SC4MOL), and efflux (↓ABCA1, ABCG1), producing a molecular profile expected to increase intracellular cholesterol.
Compound mouse mutants of bZIP transcription factors Mafg and Mafk reveal a regulatory network of non-crystallin genes associated with cataract.
Newark, United States. In Hum Genet, Jul 2015
Significantly, 8/36 (22%) DRGs are associated with cataracts in human (GSTO1, MGST1, SC4MOL, UCHL1) or mouse (Aldh3a1, Crygf, Hspb1, Pcbd1), suggesting a multifactorial etiology that includes oxidative stress and misregulation of sterol synthesis.
The Effect of Statins on Blood Gene Expression in COPD.
Vancouver, Canada. In Plos One, 2014
RESULTS: 25 genes were differentially expressed between statin users and non-users at an FDR of 10%, including LDLR, CXCR2, SC4MOL, FAM108A1, IFI35, FRYL, ABCG1, MYLIP, and DHCR24.
Unbiased analysis of pancreatic cancer radiation resistance reveals cholesterol biosynthesis as a novel target for radiosensitisation.
Omaha, United States. In Br J Cancer, 2014
RESULTS: Microarray analysis indicated that 11 genes (FDPS, ACAT2, AG2, CLDN7, DHCR7, ELFN2, FASN, SC4MOL, SIX6, SLC12A2, and SQLE) were consistently associated with radioresistance in the cell lines, a majority of which are involved in cholesterol biosynthesis.
Sterol metabolism disorders and neurodevelopment-an update.
Pittsburgh, United States. In Dev Disabil Res Rev, 2012
In this article, we review sterol synthesis disorders in the pre- and post-squalene pathway highlighting neurodevelopmental aspects that underlie the clinical presentations and course of Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (SLOS), mevalonic aciduria (MVA) or the milder version hyper-immunoglobulinemia D and periodic fever syndrome (HIDS), Antley-Bixler syndrome with genital anomalies and disordered steroidogenesis (ABS1), congenital hemidysplasia with icthyosiform nevus and limb defects (CHILD) syndrome, CK syndrome, sterol C4 methyl oxidase (SC4MOL) deficiency, X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia punctata 2(CDPX2)/ Conradi Hunermann syndrome, lathosterolosis and desmosterolosis, We also discuss current controversies and share thoughts on future directions in the field.
