Pleiotropic effects of long-term monotherapy with rosuvastatin in dogs with moderate heart failure.
Detroit, United States. In Cardiology, 2011
mRNA and protein expression of prohypertrophic mediator NGFI-A binding protein 1 (Nab1), phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN), phosphoinositide-3 kinase (PI3K) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) were measured, as well as that of proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-6 (IL-6), bone marrow-derived stem cell markers cKit and Sca1, vascular endothelial and fibroblast growth factors (VEGF and FGF) and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms.
Thiol-based redox switches and gene regulation.
Greifswald, Germany. In Antioxid Redox Signal, 2011
In eukaryotes, thiol-based switches control the yeast Yap1p transcription factor, the Nrf2/Keap1 electrophile and oxidative stress response, and the Chlamydomonas NAB1 translational repressor.
Hemizygous deletion of COL3A1, COL5A2, and MSTN causes a complex phenotype with aortic dissection: a lesson for and from true haploinsufficiency.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Eur J Hum Genet, 2010
This deletion affects not only COL3A1 but also 21 other known genes (GULP1, DIRC1, COL5A2, WDR75, SLC40A1, ASNSD1, ANKAR, OSGEPL1, ORMDL1, LOC100129592, PMS1, MSTN, C2orf88, HIBCH, INPP1, MFSD6, TMEM194B, NAB1, GLS, STAT1, and STAT4), mutations in three of which (COL5A2, SLC40A1, and MSTN) have also been associated with an autosomal dominant disorder (EDS classical type, hemochromatosis type 4, and muscle hypertrophy).
