Genome-Wide Analysis of DNA Methylation and Cigarette Smoking in Chinese.
Wuhan, China. In Environ Health Perspect, Feb 2016
Of these smoking-related CpGs, methylation levels at 80 CpGs showed significant correlations with the expression of corresponding genes (including RUNX3, IL6R, PTAFR, ANKRD11, CEP135 and CDH23), and methylation at 15 CpGs were significantly associated with urinary 2-hydroxynaphthalene, the most representative internal monohydroxy-PAHs biomarker for smoking.
The emerging role of RUNX3 in cancer metastasis (Review).
Xuzhou, China. In Oncol Rep, Jan 2016
The runt-related transcription factor 3 (RUNX3) is a downstream effector of the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling pathway, and has critical roles in the regulation of cell death by apoptosis, and in angiogenesis, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), cell migration and invasion.
The immunogenetics of Psoriasis: A comprehensive review.
New York City, United States. In J Autoimmun, Nov 2015
These genes span an array of functions that involve antigen presentation (HLA-Cw6, ERAP1, ERAP2, MICA), the IL-23 axis (IL12Bp40, IL23Ap19, IL23R, JAK2, TYK2), T-cell development and T-cells polarization (RUNX1, RUNX3, STAT3, TAGAP, IL4, IL13), innate immunity (CARD14, c-REL, TRAF3IP2, DDX58, IFIH1), and negative regulators of immune responses (TNIP1, TNFAIP3, NFKBIA, ZC3H12C, IL36RN, SOCS1).
