Replication study of 10 genes showing evidence for association with multiple sclerosis: validation of TMEM39A, IL12B and CBLB [correction of CLBL] genes.
Spain. In Mult Scler, 2012
RESULTS: Replication extended to the following polymorphisms: PKN2 (rs305217), GTF2B (rs7538427), EPHA4 (rs1517440), YTHDF3 (rs12115114), ANKFN1 (rs17758761) and PTPRM (rs4798571), which did not reach the threshold of significance in a follow-up of the first genome-wide association study (GWAS) conducted in multiple sclerosis; TMEM39A (rs1132200), which appeared as a newly identified susceptibility gene in the same study; a gene previously reaching GWAS significance in Italy, CBLB (rs9657904); IL12B (rs6887695, rs10045431), a susceptibility gene shared by diverse autoimmune diseases and, finally, another gene showing inconclusive association with multiple sclerosis, CNR1 (rs1049353).
Gene expression of AGS cells stimulated with released proteins by Helicobacter pylori.
South Korea. In J Gastroenterol Hepatol, 2008
Out of the selected 40 up- and five downregulated genes, 29 upregulated genes classified as general RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity (GTF2B, PPARGC1A), SH3/SH2 adaptor activity (CRKL), transferase activity (ACLY, CRKL, PIGC, PLK4), and oxidoreductase activity (IDH1) were confirmed to be upregulated by released proteins and not by H. pylori adhesion by real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.
