Genetics of vasculitis.
Johannesburg, South Africa. In Curr Opin Rheumatol, 2015
These associations include ERAP1, CCR1-CCR3, STAT4, KLRC4, GIMAP4, and TNFAIP3 in Behçet's disease; BLK and CD40 in Kawasaki disease; SERPINA1 and SEMA6A in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody associated vasculitides; IL12B and FCGR2A/ FCGR2A in Takayasu arteritis; and CECR1 in a newly defined vascular inflammatory syndrome associated with adenosine deaminase (ADA2) deficiency.
Proteomics analysis of interleukin (IL)-7-induced signaling effectors shows selective changes in IL-7Ralpha449F knock-in T cell progenitors.
Vancouver, Canada. In Mol Cell Proteomics, 2007
An iTRAQ (isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation) proteomics analysis was performed comparing CD4(-)CD8(-) double negative T cell progenitors from mice overexpressing IL-7 (Tg IL-7) (lymphoma-prone) with Tg IL-7 mice with a mutated IL-7 receptor (Tg IL-7/IL-7Ralpha(449F)) (lymphoma-protected). Several proteins involved in survival, proliferation, and apoptosis were found to be differentially expressed between the two samples, and three proteins of particular interest, GIMAP4, BIT1, and FKBP51, were validated by immunoblot analysis.
Gene expression profiles of small-cell lung cancers: molecular signatures of lung cancer.
Tokyo, Japan. In Int J Oncol, 2006
Some of them are known to be transcription factors and/or gene expression regulators such as TAF5L, TFCP2L4, PHF20, LMO4, TCF20, RFX2, and DKFZp547I048 as well as those encoding nucleotide-binding proteins such as C9orf76, EHD3, and GIMAP4.
Gimap4 accelerates T-cell death.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Blood, 2006
Gimap4 accelerates the execution of programmed cell death induced by intrinsic stimuli downstream of caspase-3 activation and phosphatidylserine exposure. Apoptosis directly correlates with the phosphorylation status of Gimap4.
