The impact of genetic factors on response to glucocorticoids therapy in IBD.
Poznań, Poland. In Scand J Gastroenterol, Feb 2016
To those genes belong: NR3C1 - responsible for the synthesis of GC receptor (GR); Hsp90, HSP70, STIP1, FKB5 - genes of GR protein complex; ABCB1 and IPO13 coding glycoprotein p170; and importin 13 - involved in GCs transport; IL1A, IL1B, IL2, IL4, IL8, IL10, TNF, and MIF - genes of the epithelial pro-inflammatory factors synthesis, which excessive activation causes steroid resistance as well as CYP3A4 and CYP3A5 - encoding GCs biotransformation enzymes.
Association of genetic variants with hypertension in a longitudinal population-based genetic epidemiological study.
Tsu, Japan. In Int J Mol Med, May 2015
Longitudinal analysis with a generalized estimating equation and with adjustment for age, gender, body mass index and smoking status revealed that rs2116519 of family with sequence similarity 78, member B (FAM78B; P=0.0266), rs6929846 of butyrophilin, subfamily 2, member A1 (BTN2A1; P=0.0013), rs146021107 of pancreatic and duodenal homeobox 1 (PDX1; P=0.0031) and rs1671021 of lethal giant larvae homolog 2 (Drosophila) (LLGL2; P=0.0372) were significantly (P<0.05)
Gene expression correlations in human cancer cell lines define molecular interaction networks for epithelial phenotype.
Bethesda, United States. In Plos One, 2013
The most highly correlated genes were implicated in the following epithelial functions: interactions at tight junctions (CLDN7, CLDN4, CLDN3, MARVELD3, MARVELD2, TJP3, CGN, CRB3, LLGL2, EPCAM, LNX1); interactions at adherens junctions (CDH1, ADAP1, CAMSAP3); interactions at desmosomes (PPL, PKP3, JUP); transcription regulation of cell-cell junction complexes (GRHL1 and 2); epithelial RNA splicing regulators (ESRP1 and 2); epithelial vesicle traffic (RAB25, EPN3, GRHL2, EHF, ADAP1, MYO5B); epithelial Ca(+2) signaling (ATP2C2, S100A14, BSPRY); terminal differentiation of epithelial cells (OVOL1 and 2, ST14, PRSS8, SPINT1 and 2); maintenance of apico-basal polarity (RAB25, LLGL2, EPN3).
Increased importin 13 activity is associated with the pathogenesis of pterygium.
Xiamen, China. In Mol Vis, 2012
PURPOSE: We previously reported that importin 13 (IPO13), a member of the importin-β family of nuclear import proteins, regulates nuclear import of the glucocorticoid receptor in airway epithelial cells, IPO13 serves as a potential marker for corneal epithelial progenitor cells, and IPO13 is associated with corneal cell proliferation.
The expression levels of stem cell markers importin13, c-kit, CD146, and telomerase are decreased in endometrial polyps.
Chongqing, China. In Med Sci Monit, 2011
Data show that expression of IPO13, c-kit, telomerase, caspase3, and CD146 are decreased in endometrial polyps; however, the expression of bcl-2 was increased in polyps compared to the normal endometrial tissue.
