Phenotypes of Recessive Pediatric Cataract in a Cohort of Children with Identified Homozygous Gene Mutations (An American Ophthalmological Society Thesis).
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In Trans Am Ophthalmol Soc, Sep 2015
The remaining 12 families each had mutations in 12 different genes (CRYAA, CRYBA1, AKR1E2, AGK, BFSP2, CYP27A1, CYP51A1, EPHA2, GCNT2, LONP1, RNLS, WDR87) with unique phenotypes noted for CYP27A1 (bilateral juvenile fleck with anterior and/or posterior capsular cataract and later cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis), EPHA2 (bilateral anterior persistent fetal vasculature), and BFSP2 (bilateral flecklike with cloudy cortex).
Recent insights on circulating catecholamines in hypertension.
Rochester, United States. In Curr Hypertens Rep, 2014
In an effort to target catecholamines as a means of treating hypertension, novel therapeutic options are being explored, including the generation of pharmacophores that mimic the suppressive effects of catestatin on catecholamine release as well as the use of renalase enhancers to increase catecholamine metabolism.
