Regulation of NGF-driven neurite outgrowth by Ins(1,4,5)P3 kinase is specifically associated with the two isoenzymes Itpka and Itpkb in a model of PC12 cells.
Brussels, Belgium. In Febs J, Jul 2015
Four inositol phosphate kinases catalyze phosphorylation of the second messenger inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate [Ins(1,4,5)P3 ] to inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrakisphosphate [Ins(1,3,4,5)P4 ]: these enzymes comprise three isoenzymes of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate 3-kinase (Itpk), referred to as Itpka, Itpkb and Itpkc, and the inositol polyphosphate multikinase (IPMK).
Update of genetic susceptibility in patients with Kawasaki disease.
Seoul, South Korea. In Korean J Pediatr, Mar 2015
This review revealed numerous potential susceptibility genes including genetic polymorphisms of ITPKC, CASP3, the transforming growth factor-β signaling pathway, B lymphoid tyrosine kinase, FCGR2A, KCNN2, and other genes, an imbalance of Th17/Treg, and a range of suggested future treatment options.
Intravenous immunoglobulin, pharmacogenomics, and Kawasaki disease.
Kao-hsiung, Taiwan. In J Microbiol Immunol Infect, 2014
Findings in the past decade have contributed to a major breakthrough in the genetics of KD, with the identification of several genomic regions linked to the pathogenesis of KD, including ITPKC, CD40, BLK, and FCGR2A.
Management of Kawasaki disease.
London, United Kingdom. In Arch Dis Child, 2014
Genetic studies have identified several susceptibility genes for KD and its sequelae in different ethnic populations, including FCGR2A, CD40, ITPKC, FAM167A-BLK and CASP3, as well as genes influencing response to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and aneurysm formation such as FCGR3B, and transforming growth factor (TGF) β pathway genes.
