Aldehyde dehydrogenase 18 family, member A1

This gene is a member of the aldehyde dehydrogenase family and encodes a bifunctional ATP- and NADPH-dependent mitochondrial enzyme with both gamma-glutamyl kinase and gamma-glutamyl phosphate reductase activities. The encoded protein catalyzes the reduction of glutamate to delta1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate, a critical step in the de novo biosynthesis of proline, ornithine and arginine. Mutations in this gene lead to hyperammonemia, hypoornithinemia, hypocitrullinemia, hypoargininemia and hypoprolinemia and may be associated with neurodegeneration, cataracts and connective tissue diseases. Alternatively spliced transcript variants, encoding different isoforms, have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Patruno et al., Chieti, Italy. In Eur J Med Chem, Jan 2016
The syntheses of GP(Me)R, GP(Me)K, and GP(Me)H were all achieved both by introducing the Pro(Me) residue into the Gly-Pro-Arg (GPR) sequence in place of the native Pro in P2 position and replacing the basic amino acid Arg in P3 position by Lys or His.

Tamoxifen resistance: from cell culture experiments towards novel biomarkers.
Kalinski et al., Magdeburg, Germany. In Pathol Res Pract, Mar 2015
Tamoxifen resistance is associated with altered estrogen receptor expression especially on the plasma membrane, including the alternative G-protein coupled receptor GPR-30 (GPER) and estrogen receptor splice products, such as ERα36.
The role of kisspeptin signalling in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis - current perspective.
Sathyapalan et al., Kingston upon Hull, United Kingdom. In Endokrynol Pol, 2014
We will also be appraising other factors that regulate the kiSS1/Kisspeptin/GPR-54 system.
Mitochondria-controlled signaling mechanisms of brain protection in hypoxia.
Kirova et al., Moscow, Russia. In Front Neurosci, 2014
Patterns of mitochondria-controlled activation of GPR-91- and HIF-1-dependent reaction were considered, and a possibility of their participation in cellular-intercellular-systemic interactions in hypoxia and adaptation was proved.
Extra sensory perception: the role of Gpr receptors in the kidney.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review will summarize recent literature highlighting the roles of sensory Gpr receptors and their roles in renal function.
Polarity establishment, asymmetric division and segregation of fate determinants in early C. elegans embryos.
Gönczy et al., Davis, United States. In Wormbook, 2013
We explain how a ternary complex comprised of Gα (GOA-1/GPA-16), GPR-1/GPR-2, and LIN-5 is essential for anchoring the motor protein dynein to the cell cortex, where it is thought to exert pulling forces on depolymerizing astral microtubules.
G protein signaling modulator-3: a leukocyte regulator of inflammation in health and disease.
Tarrant et al., Chapel Hill, United States. In Am J Clin Exp Immunol, 2013
G protein signaling modulator-3 (GPSM3), also known as G18 or AGS4, is a member of a family of proteins containing one or more copies of a small regulatory motif known as the GoLoco (or GPR) motif.
aPKC phosphorylates NuMA-related LIN-5 to position the mitotic spindle during asymmetric division.
van den Heuvel et al., Utrecht, Netherlands. In Nat Cell Biol, 2011
In animals, an evolutionarily conserved pathway of LIN-5 (homologues: Mud and NuMA), GPR-1/2 (homologues: Pins, LGN, AGS-3) and Gα mediates spindle positioning, and acts downstream of the conserved PAR-3-PAR-6-aPKC polarity complex.
