Homeodomain proteins: an update.
Basel, Switzerland. In Chromosoma, Nov 2015
In animals, there are 16 major classes, ANTP, PRD, PRD-LIKE, POU, HNF, CUT (with four subclasses: ONECUT, CUX, SATB, and CMP), LIM, ZF, CERS, PROS, SIX/SO, plus the TALE superclass with the classes IRO, MKX, TGIF, PBC, and MEIS.
Alzheimer's Disease: A Heme-Aβ Perspective.
Calcutta, India. In Acc Chem Res, Oct 2015
Redox active iron is utilized in biology for various electron transfer and catalytic reactions essential for life, yet this same chemistry mediates the formation of partially reduced oxygen species (PROS).
Lost after translation: insights from pulmonary surfactant for understanding the role of alveolar epithelial dysfunction and cellular quality control in fibrotic lung disease.
Ōita, Japan. In Am J Physiol Lung Cell Mol Physiol, Oct 2015
Drawing on data generated from a variety of model systems expressing disease-related surfactant component mutations [surfactant proteins A and C (SP-A and SP-C); the lipid transporter ABCA3], this review will examine the concept of epithelial dysfunction in fibrotic lung disease, provide an update on AT2 cell and surfactant biology, summarize cellular responses to mutant surfactant components [including endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, and intrinsic apoptosis], and examine quality control pathways (unfolded protein response, the ubiquitin-proteasome system, macroautophagy) that can be utilized to restore AT2 homeostasis.
Three toxic gases meet in the mitochondria.
Dijon, France. In Front Physiol, 2014
This model contains all three redox-active components in CcO's active site, which are required to minimize the production of partially-reduced-oxygen-species (PROS): Fe-heme ("heme a3") in a myoglobin-like model fitted with a proximal imidazole ligand, and a distal tris-imidazole Copper ("CuB") complex, where one imidazole is cross-linked to a phenol (mimicking "Tyr244").
TAM receptor signaling in immune homeostasis.
In Annu Rev Immunol, 2014
The TAM receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs)-TYRO3, AXL, and MERTK-together with their cognate agonists GAS6 and PROS1 play an essential role in the resolution of inflammation.
Meta-analysis and meta-review of thyroid cancer gene expression profiling studies identifies important diagnostic biomarkers.
Vancouver, Canada. In J Clin Oncol, 2006
A review of the top 12 candidates revealed well known thyroid cancer markers such as MET, TFF3, SERPINA1, TIMP1, FN1, and TPO as well as relatively novel or uncharacterized genes such as TGFA, QPCT, CRABP1, FCGBP, EPS8 and PROS1.
