Glia maturation factor, beta

GMFB, GMF-beta
transcription factor; may be important for brain cell development [RGD, Feb 2006] (from NCBI)
Papers on GMFB
Augmented expression of glia maturation factor in Alzheimer's disease.
Zaheer et al., Iowa City, United States. In Neuroscience, 2011
GMF co-localizes with amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in Alzheimer brains, implicating significant upregulation of GMF expression under conditions of neurodegeneration.
Glia maturation factor overexpression in neuroblastoma cells activates glycogen synthase kinase-3beta and caspase-3.
Yang et al., Iowa City, United States. In Brain Res, 2008
[glial maturation factor; GMF] Results imply that GMF is involved in the signaling leading to the activation of glycogen synthase kinase-3beta and caspase-3 in N18 cells and strongly suggest its involvement in neurodegeneration.
[Effect of glia maturation factor beta on the activation of hepatic stellate cells and on liver fibrosis].
Wei et al., Beijing, China. In Zhonghua Gan Zang Bing Za Zhi, 2007
There is a significant increase in GMF beta protein expression levels in IFN beta-1a treated LX-2 cells.
Glia maturation factor-beta is produced by thymoma and may promote intratumoral T-cell differentiation.
Eimoto et al., Nagoya, Japan. In Histopathology, 2005
GMFB promoted T-cell differentiation into CD4-/CD8+ cells when analysed by two-colour flow cytometry.
Induction of glia maturation factor-beta in proximal tubular cells leads to vulnerability to oxidative injury through the p38 pathway and changes in antioxidant enzyme activities.
Imai et al., Ōsaka, Japan. In J Biol Chem, 2003
proteinuria induction of GMF-beta in renal proximal tubular cells may play a critical role in the progression of renal diseases by enhancing oxidative injuries
