A Genetic Variant in TGFBR3-CDC7 Is Associated with Visual Field Progression in Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma Patients from Singapore.
Singapore, Singapore. In Ophthalmology, 31 Dec 2015
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and their proxies from 10 POAG-associated loci (CAV1-CAV2, CDKN2B-AS1, SIX1-SIX6, an intergenic region on chromosome 8q22, ABCA1, GAS7, AFAP1, GMDS, PMM2, and TGFBR3-CDC7) identified from genome-wide association studies were tested for association with VF progression using logistic regression with an additive genetic model adjusting for age, gender, average intraocular pressure (IOP), central corneal thickness (CCT), and baseline vertical cup-to-disc ratio (VCDR).
An Updated Review on the Genetics of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma.
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In Int J Mol Sci, 2014
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at different loci including CAV1/CAV2, TMCO1, CDKN2B-AS1, CDC7-TGFBR3, SIX1/SIX6, GAS7 and ATOH7 to be associated with POAG and its related quantitative traits (endophenotypes).
Exploring DNA methylation changes in promoter, intragenic, and intergenic regions as early and late events in breast cancer formation.
Chicago, United States. In Bmc Cancer, 2014
The DNA regions studied were promoters (BRCA1, CD44, ESR1, GSTM2, GSTP1, MAGEA1, MSI1, NFE2L3, RASSF1A, RUNX3, SIX3 and TFF1), far-upstream regions (EN1, PAX3, PITX2, and SGK1), introns (APC, EGFR, LHX2, RFX1 and SOX9) and the LINE-1 and satellite 2 DNA repeats.
Evolution and development of the adelphophagic, intracapsular Schmidt's larva of the nemertean Lineus ruber.
Bergen, Norway. In Evodevo, 2014
The expression of evolutionarily conserved anterior (foxQ2, six3/6, gsc, otx), endomesodermal (foxA, GATA456-a, twi-a) and posterior (evx, cdx) markers demonstrate that the juvenile retains the molecular patterning of the Schmidt's larva.
Six3 is required for ependymal cell maturation.
Memphis, United States. In Development, 2011
It was shown that Six3 is necessary for ependymal cell maturation during postnatal stages of brain development. In its absence, ependymal cells fail to suppress radial glia characteristics.
