Karyotype evolution in apomictic Boechera and the origin of the aberrant chromosomes.
Brno, Czech Republic. In Plant J, Jun 2015
CCP analysis allowed us to reconstruct the origin of seven chromosomes in sexual B. stricta and apomictic B. divaricarpa from the ancestral karyotype (n = 8) of Brassicaceae lineage I. Whereas three chromosomes (BS4, BS6, and BS7) retained their ancestral structure, five chromosomes were reshuffled by reciprocal translocations to form chromosomes BS1-BS3 and BS5.
Quantitative candidate gene association studies of metabolic traits in Han Chinese type 2 diabetes patients.
Tianjin, China. In Genet Mol Res, 2014
We found that CAMTA1, ABI2, VHL, KAT2B, PKHD1, ESR1, TOX, SLC30A8, SFI1, and MYH9 polymorphisms were associated with HbA1c, FPG, and/or P2PG; GCK, HHEX, TCF7L2, KCNQ1, and TBX5 polymorphisms were associated with insulin resistance-related traits; ABCG2, SLC2A9, and PKHD1 polymorphisms were associated with SUA; CAMTA1, VHL, KAT2B, PON1, NUB1, SLITRK5, SMAD3, FTO, FANCA, and PCSK2 polymorphisms were associated with blood lipid traits; CAMTA1, SPAG16, TOX, KCNQ1, ACACB, and MYH9 polymorphisms were associated with blood pressure; and UBE2E3, SPAG16, SLC2A9, CDKAL1, CDKN2A/B, TCF7L2, SMAD3, and PNPLA3 polymorphisms were associated with BMI (all P values <0.05).
FAT10ylation as a signal for proteasomal degradation.
Konstanz, Germany. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2014
Here we review the data on ubiquitin-independent degradation by FAT10, on how FAT10 is conjugated to its substrates, how FAT10 binds to the 26S proteasome, and how the ubiquitin-like (UBL)-ubiquitin-associated (UBA) protein NUB1L accelerates FAT10 mediated proteolysis.
