Transcriptome profiles of Penaeus (Marsupenaeus) japonicus animal and vegetal half-embryos: identification of sex determination, germ line, mesoderm, and other developmental genes.
Australia. In Mar Biotechnol (ny), Jun 2015
Some of the genes found included the sex determination genes sex-lethal and transformer; the germ line genes argonaute 1, boule, germ cell-less, gustavus, maelstrom, mex-3, par-1, pumilio, SmB, staufen, and tudor; the mesoderm genes brachyury, mef2, snail, and twist; the axis determination/segmentation genes β-catenin, deformed, distal-less, engrailed, giant, hairy, hunchback, kruppel, orthodenticle, patched, tailless, and wingless/wnt-8c; and a number of cell-cycle regulators.
Mex3c mutation reduces adiposity and increases energy expenditure.
Winston-Salem, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 2012
The function of MEX3C, the mammalian homolog of Caenorhabditis elegans RNA-binding protein muscle excess 3 (MEX-3), was unknown until our recent report that MEX3C is necessary for normal postnatal growth and enhances the expression of local bone Igf1 expression.

DIAGNOSIS/TESTING: Diagnosis is based on clinical findings, marginally to moderately increased serum creatine kinase levels, characteristic skeletal muscle histology, and biallelic small frameshift deletions in the exons Mex1 and Mex3 of TTN, the only gene in which mutations are known to cause Salih myopathy.
Microarray analyses of oral punch biopsies from acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients treated with chemotherapy.
Charlotte, United States. In Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod, 2011
RESULTS: LIMMA and SAM identified genes potentially affected by the presence of AML, including homeodomain-interacting protein kinase 1 (HIPK1), mex-3 homolog D (MEX3D), and genes potentially affected by chemotherapy, including argininosuccinate synthase 1 (ASS1), notch homolog 1 (NOTCH1), zinc transporter ZIP6 (SLC39A6), and TP53-regulated inhibitor of apoptosis 1 (TRIAP1).
