Exercise-associated DNA methylation change in skeletal muscle and the importance of imprinted genes: a bioinformatics meta-analysis.
In Br J Sports Med, Dec 2015
RESULTS: Six imprinted loci (RB1, MEG3, UBE3A, PLAGL1, SGCE, INS) were important for muscle gene networks, while meta-analysis uncovered five exercise-associated imprinted loci (KCNQ1, MEG3, GRB10, L3MBTL1, PLAGL1).
Regulation of SCN3B/scn3b by Interleukin 2 (IL-2): IL-2 modulates SCN3B/scn3b transcript expression and increases sodium current in myocardial cells.
Wuhan, China. In Bmc Cardiovasc Disord, Dec 2015
METHODS: In the present study, we observed the effect of IL-2 by qRT-PCR on the transcription of ion channel genes including SCN2A, SCN3A, SCN4A, SCN5A, SCN9A, SCN10A, SCN1B, SCN2B, SCN3B, KCNN1, KCNJ5, KCNE1, KCNE2, KCNE3, KCND3, KCNQ1, KCNA5, KCNH2 and CACNA1C.
Regulation of KCNQ1/KCNE1 by β-catenin.
Tübingen, Germany. In Mol Membr Biol, 2012
KCNE1/KCNQ1 was expressed in Xenopus oocytes with and without beta-catenin. Confocal microscopy revealed that beta-catenin enhanced the KCNE1/KCNQ1 protein abundance in the cell membrane.
