Contactins in the neurobiology of autism.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Eur J Pharmacol, 2013
The contactin (CNTN) family of Ig cell adhesion molecules (IgCAMs) harbours at least three members that have genetically been implicated in autism: CNTN4, CNTN5, and CNTN6.
Cytochrome P450- and peroxidase-mediated oxidation of anticancer alkaloid ellipticine dictates its anti-tumor efficiency.
Praha, Czech Republic. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2011
In contrast, two carbenium ions, ellipticine-13-ylium and ellipticine-12-ylium, derived from two activation ellipticine metabolites, 13-hydroxyellipticine and 12-hydroxyellipticine, generate two major deoxyguanosine adducts in DNA found in the human breast adenocarcinoma MCF-7 cells, leukemia HL-60 and CCRF-CEM cells, neuroblastoma IMR-32, UKF-NB-3, and UKF-NB-4 cells and glioblastoma U87MG cells in vitro and in rat breast carcinoma in vivo.
Brain regions and genes affecting postural control.
Rouen, France. In Prog Neurobiol, 2007
With the gene deletion technique in mice, specific genes expressed in cerebellum encoding glutamate receptors (Grid2 and Grm1) and other molecules (Prkcc, Cntn6, Klf9, Syt4, and En2) have also been shown to affect postural control.
