Evolution of parathyroid hormone receptor family and their ligands in vertebrate.
Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), Dec 2014
The presence of the parathyroid hormones in vertebrates, including PTH, PTH-related peptide (PTHrP), and tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues (TIP39), has been proposed to be the result of two rounds of whole genome duplication in the beginning of vertebrate diversification.
Preoptic inputs and mechanisms that regulate maternal responsiveness.
Budapest, Hungary. In J Neuroendocrinol, Oct 2014
Recent results on the pathway mediating the effects of suckling to the mPOA suggest that neurones containing the neuropeptide tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues in the posterior thalamus are candidates for conveying the suckling information to the mPOA.
Genetics of primary open angle glaucoma.
Tokyo, Japan. In Jpn J Ophthalmol, 2014
Several association studies have been conducted for candidate genes, and genome-wide association studies recently identified new susceptibility loci for POAG, namely, S1 RNA binding domain 1 region on chromosome 2p21, the caveolin 1 and caveolin 2 regions on 7q31, transmembrane and coiled-coil domain 1 region on 1q24, cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2B antisense RNA on 9p21, the SIX1 and SIX6 regions on 14q24 and, possibly, the regulatory region of 8q22.
EYA1-SIX1 complex in neurosensory cell fate induction in the mammalian inner ear.
New York City, United States. In Hear Res, 2013
The phosphatase-transactivator EYA1 interacts with the homeodomain protein SIX1 to form transcriptional activation complexes, which play essential roles in regulating cell proliferation, survival and induction of sensory and neuronal differentiation programs during inner ear development.
