Roles of heat shock factor 1 in isoproterenol‑induced myocardial fibrosis in mice.
Chenzhou, China. In Mol Med Report, Oct 2015
It was found that after administration of ISO in Kunming and HSF1-/+ mice, there was a large number of fibers deposited around blood vessels and among cardiocytes, accompanied with an obvious increase in the protein expressions of type I or III collagen and heat shock protein 47 (HSP47), as indicated by western blot analysis.
Osteogenesis imperfecta due to mutations in non-collagenous genes: lessons in the biology of bone formation.
Bethesda, United States. In Curr Opin Pediatr, 2014
Heat shock protein 47 (HSP47) and FK506-binding protein-65 (FKBP65) defects cause types X and XI osteogenesis imperfecta via aberrant collagen crosslinking, folding, and chaperoning, while defects in SP7 transcription factor, wingless-type MMTV integration site family member 1 (WNT1), trimeric intracellular cation channel type b (TRIC-B), and old astrocyte specifically induced substance (OASIS) disrupt osteoblast development.
Bone collagen: new clues to its mineralization mechanism from recessive osteogenesis imperfecta.
Seattle, United States. In Calcif Tissue Int, 2013
They include CRTAP, LEPRE1, and PPIB, which encode three proteins forming the prolyl 3-hydroxylase complex; PLOD2 and FKBP10, which encode, respectively, lysyl hydroxylase 2 and a foldase required for its activity in forming mature cross-links in bone collagen; SERPINH1, which encodes the collagen chaperone HSP47; SERPINF1, which encodes pigment epithelium-derived factor required for osteoid mineralization; and BMP1, which encodes the type I procollagen C-propeptidase.
Antibody profile of early HTLV-I infection.
Boston, United States. In Lancet, 1990
The confirmatory tests identified 8 seroconverters (7 women, 1 man); their serum samples were used to study the antibody reactivity by western blot assays to HTLV-I specific antigens (three recombinant proteins spanning the N-terminal, middle, and C-terminal env glycoprotein gp46; a recombinant transmembrane protein gp21; a recombinant tax protein; and three gag proteins [p28, p24, and p19]).
