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.
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 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.
