Purine metabolism gene deregulation in Parkinson's disease.
Barcelona, Spain. In Neuropathol Appl Neurobiol, Dec 2015
METHODS: Analysis of mRNA using real-time quantitative PCR of 22 genes involved in purine metabolism in the substantia nigra, putamen and cerebral cortex area 8 in PD at different stages of disease progression, and localization of selected purine metabolism-related enzymes with immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Reduced expression of adenylate kinase 2 (AKA2), AK3, AK4, adenine phosphoribosyltransferase, ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase 1 (ENTPD1), ENTPD3, nonmetastatic cells 3, nucleoside-diphosphatese kinase 3 (NME1), NME7 and purine nucleoside phosphorylase 1 (PNP1) mRNA in the substantia nigra at stages 3-6; up-regulation of ADA mRNA in the frontal cortex area 8 at stages 3-4 and of AK1, AK5, NME4, NME5, NME6, 5'-nucleotidase (NT5E), PNP1 and prune homolog Drosophila at stages 5-6.
Deregulation of purine metabolism in Alzheimer's disease.
l'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain. In Neurobiol Aging, 2015
APRT, DGUOK, POLR3B, ENTPD3, AK5, NME1, NME3, NME5, NME7, and ENTPD2 messenger RNAs were deregulated, with regional variations, in AD cases when compared with controls.
Clinical implications of gene dosage and gene expression patterns in diploid breast carcinoma.
Göteborg, Sweden. In Clin Cancer Res, 2010
In addition, more malignant tumors with normal gene dosage levels displayed a recurrent overexpression of UBE2C, S100A8, and CBX2, and downregulation of LOC389033, STC2, DNALI1, SCUBE2, NME5, SUSD3, SERPINA11, AZGP1, and PIP.
Nm23-M5 mediates round and elongated spermatid survival by regulating GPX-5 levels.
Seoul, South Korea. In Febs Lett, 2009
Previously, we cloned a new member of the NDPK family from mouse, Nm23-M5, which encodes a 211-amino acid protein and has 86% identity to the human Nm23-H5 [Hwang, K.C., Ok, D.W., Hong, J.C., Kim, M.O. and Kim, J.H. (2003) Cloning, sequencing, and characterization of the murine Nm23-M5 gene during mouse spermatogenesis and spermiogenesis.
Nme protein family evolutionary history, a vertebrate perspective.
Rennes, France. In Bmc Evol Biol, 2008
Nme1, Nme2, Nme3, and Nme4 belong to Group I while vertebrate Nme5, Nme6, Nme7, Nme8, and Nme9 belong to Group II.
Genes involved in differentiation, stem cell renewal, and tumorigenesis are modulated in telomerase-immortalized human urothelial cells.
Leeds, United Kingdom. In Mol Cancer Res, 2008
These genes (NME5, PSCA, TSPYL5, LY75, IGFBP2, IGF2, CEACAM6, XG, NOX5, KAL1, and HPGD) include eight previously identified as polycomb group targets.
