Functional genomic assessment of phosgene-induced acute lung injury in mice.
Pittsburgh, United States. In Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol, 2013
This integrative, functional approach revealed 14 candidate genes that included Atp1a1, Alox5, Galnt11, Hrh1, Mbd4, Phactr2, Plxnd1, Ptprt, Reln, and Zfand4, which had significant SNP associations, and Itga9, Man1a2, Mapk14, and Vwf, which had suggestive SNP associations.
Novel tumor suppressor candidates on chromosome 3 revealed by NotI-microarrays in cervical cancer.
Moscow, Russia. In Epigenetics, 2013
Thirty genes, including tumor suppressors or candidates (for example, VHL, RBSP3/CTDSPL, ITGA9, LRRC3B, ALDH1L1, EPHB1) and genes previously unknown as cancer-associated (ABHD5, C3orf77, PRL32, LOC285375, FGD5 and others), showed methylation/deletion in 21-44% of tumors.
Lymphangiogenic growth factors, receptors and therapies.
Helsinki, Finland. In Thromb Haemost, 2003
Other factors that seem to be involved in lymphangiogenesis include the Tie/angiopoietin system, neuropilin-2 and integrin alpha 9. VEGF-C induces lymphatic vessel growth, but high levels of VEGF-C also resulted in blood vessel leakiness and growth.
