Obesity-Related Genetic Variants and their Associations with Physical Activity.
Providence, United States. In Sports Med Open, 2014
Due to the pleiotropic effects of related phenotypes, we tested six of these obesity-related genetic variants for their association with physical activity: fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO)(rs9939609)T>A, potassium channel tetramerization domain containing (KCTD15) (rs11084753)G>A, melanocortin receptor4 (MC4R)(rs17782313)T>C, neuronal growth regulator 1 (NEGR1)(rs2815752)A>G, SH2B adapter protein 1 (SH2B1)(rs7498665)A>G, and transmembrane protein18 (TMEM18)(rs6548238)C>T.
Characterizing gene-gene interactions in a statistical epistasis network of twelve candidate genes for obesity.
United States. In Biodata Min, 2014
In this study, we aimed to analyze pairwise interactions that are associated with Body Mass Index (BMI) between SNPs from twelve genes robustly associated with obesity (BDNF, ETV5, FAIM2, FTO, GNPDA2, KCTD15, MC4R, MTCH2, NEGR1, SEC16B, SH2B1, and TMEM18).
Proteomic Analysis of Urine to Identify Breast Cancer Biomarker Candidates Using a Label-Free LC-MS/MS Approach.
Kogarah, Australia. In Plos One, 2014
These include stage specific markers associated with pre-invasive breast cancer in the ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS) samples (Leucine LRC36, MAST4 and Uncharacterized protein CI131), early invasive breast cancer (DYH8, HBA, PEPA, uncharacterized protein C4orf14 (CD014), filaggrin and MMRN2) and metastatic breast cancer (AGRIN, NEGR1, FIBA and Keratin KIC10).
Functional analysis of seven genes linked to body mass index and adiposity by genome-wide association studies: a review.
Beijing, China. In Hum Hered, 2012
The remaining 7 SNPs are adjacent to, or within, the genes NEGR1, TMEM18, ETV5, FLJ35779, LINGO2, SH2B1 and GIPR, most of which are less well studied than FTO, particularly in the context of obesity.
Genetic determinants of obesity and related vascular diseases.
Marburg an der Lahn, Germany. In Vitam Horm, 2012
In addition to common variants, FTO and MC4R, new loci, such as TMEM18, KCTD15, GNPDA2, SH2B1, MTCH2, and NEGR1 have been detected.
What model organisms and interactomics can reveal about the genetics of human obesity.
Uppsala, Sweden. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 2012
Here, we searched biological databases and discovered 33 additional genes associated with human obesity (CADM2, GIPR, GPCR5B, LRP1B, NEGR1, NRXN3, SH2B1, FANCL, GNPDA2, HMGCR, MAP2K5, NUDT3, PRKD1, QPCTL, TNNI3K, MTCH2, DNAJC27, SLC39A8, MTIF3, RPL27A, SEC16B, ETV5, HMGA1, TFAP2B, TUB, ZNF608, FAIM2, KCTD15, LINGO2, POC5, PTBP2, TMEM18, TMEM160).
Sigma factors in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Québec, Canada. In Fems Microbiol Rev, 2008
Summarized data are obtained from in silico analysis of P. aeruginosasigma and ECF including rpoD (sigma(70)), RpoH (sigma(32)), RpoF (FliA or sigma(28)), RpoS (sigma(S) or sigma(38)), RpoN (NtrA, sigma(54) or sigma(N)), ECF including AlgU (RpoE or sigma(22)), PvdS, SigX and a collection of uncharacterized sigma ECF, some of which are implicated in iron transport.
