The human β-amyloid precursor protein: biomolecular and epigenetic aspects.
In Biomol Concepts, Mar 2015
These findings may provide new directions for investigating the role of APP in neuropathology associated with a deficiency in the enzyme hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HGprt) found in patients with Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LNS) and its attenuated variants (LNVs).
Morin, a Bioflavonoid Suppresses Monosodium Urate Crystal-Induced Inflammatory Immune Response in RAW 264.7 Macrophages through the Inhibition of Inflammatory Mediators, Intracellular ROS Levels and NF-κB Activation.
Vellore, India. In Plos One, 2014
The mRNA expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, and MCP-1), inflammatory enzymes (iNOS and COX-2), and NF-κBp65 was found downregulated in MSU crystal stimulated macrophage cells by morin treatment, however, the mRNA expression of hypoxanthine phospho ribosyl transferse (HPRT) was found to be increased.
Reference genes for reverse transcription quantitative PCR in canine brain tissue.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Bmc Res Notes, 2014
RESULTS: Following the minimum information for publication of quantitative real-time PCR experiments precise guidelines, the expression of ten frequently used reference genes, namely YWHAZ, HMBS, B2M, SDHA, GAPDH, HPRT, RPL13A, RPS5, RPS19 and GUSB was evaluated in seven brain regions (frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, temporal lobe, thalamus, hippocampus and cerebellum) and whole brain of healthy dogs.
Thirteen years experience with selective screening for disorders in purine and pyrimidine metabolism.
Madrid, Spain. In Nucleosides Nucleotides Nucleic Acids, 2013
In the last thirteen years, we have studied urine/plasma specimens from about 1600 patients and we have identified 35 patients: eight patients with adenylosuccinate lyase deficiency, eight patients with hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency, one patient with purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency, ten patients with xanthine dehydrogenase deficiency, six patients with molybdenum cofactor deficiency and two patients with dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency.
Homologous recombination in human embryonic stem cells.
Madison, United States. In Nat Biotechnol, 2003
Here we report an electroporation approach, based on the physical characteristics of human ES cells, that we used to successfully target HPRT1, the gene encoding hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase-1 (HPRT1), and POU5F1, the gene encoding octamer-binding transcription factor 4 (Oct4; also known as POU domain, class 5, transcription factor 1 (POU5F1)).
Diploid azaguanine-resistant mutants of cultured human fibroblasts.
In Science, 1970
The most resistant mutant has little hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase activity, is virtually unable to incorporate hypoxanthine (a normal substrate of the enzyme), and resembles fibroblasts cultured from boys with the Lesch-Nyhan syndrome.
