Freising, Germany. In Plos One, 2014
Moreover to the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of a specific inverse regulation of the following genes in myoblast differentiation and response to TNF-α: Aknad1, Cmbl, Sepp1, Ndst4, Tecrl, Unc13c, Spats2l, Lix1, Csdc2, Cpa1, Parm1, Serpinb2, Aspn, Fibin, Slc40a1, Nrk, and Mybpc1.
Podocyte regeneration: who can become a podocyte?
Freiburg, Germany. In Am J Pathol, 2013
This Commentary highlights the article by Pippin et al that showed that renin lineage cells may enhance glomerular regeneration by serving as progenitors for glomerular epithelial cells in glomerular disease characterized by podocyte depletion.
The effect of cadmium on brain cells in culture.
Palermo, Italy. In Int J Mol Med, 2009
Finally, we report that the metal at high doses induces a decrease of PIPPin (also known as CSD-C2), a putative RNA-binding protein highly expressed in neurons and probably involved in the regulation of histone replacement variant expression.
