Smad7 inhibits AngII-mediated hypertensive nephropathy in a mouse model of hypertension.
Huizhou, China. In Clin Sci (lond), 2014
These preventive and therapeutic effects of SMAD7 on hypertensive kidney injury were associated with inhibition of AngII-induced up-regulation of SMURF2 (SMAD-specific E3 ubiquitin protein ligase 2) and Sp1 (specificity protein 1), blockade of TGFβ/Smad3-mediated renal fibrosis and suppression of NF-κB-driven renal inflammation.
Expression of mesenchymal stem cells-related genes and plasticity of aspirated follicular cells obtained from infertile women.
Ljubljana, Slovenia. In Biomed Res Int, 2013
Altogether the expression of 57 genes was detected in AFCs: 16 genes (OCT4, CD49f, CD106, CD146, CD45, CD54, IL10, IL1B, TNF, VEGF, VWF, HDAC1, MITF, RUNX2, PPARG, and PCAF) were upregulated and 20 genes (FGF2, CASP3, CD105, CD13, CD340, CD73, CD90, KDR, PDGFRB, BDNF, COL1A1, IL6, MMP2, NES, NUDT6, BMP6, SMURF2, BMP4, GDF5, and JAG1) were downregulated in AFCs when compared with BM-MSCs.
Functional networks of nucleocytoplasmic transport-related genes differentiate ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathies. A new therapeutic opportunity.
Valencia, Spain. In Plos One, 2013
DDX3X, KPNA2, and PTK2B were related to ICM, while SMURF2, NUP153, IPO5, RANBP3, NOXA1, and RHOJ were involved in DCM pathogenesis.
Downregulation of Smurf2, a tumor-suppressive ubiquitin ligase, in triple-negative breast cancers: involvement of the RB-microRNA axis.
Chicago, United States. In Bmc Cancer, 2013
BACKGROUND: The HECT family ubiquitin ligase Smurf2 regulates cell polarity, migration, division, differentiation and death, by targeting diverse substrates that are critical for receptor signaling, cytoskeleton, chromatin remodeling and transcription.
Genome wide association and linkage analyses identified three loci-4q25, 17q23.2, and 10q11.21-associated with variation in leukocyte telomere length: the Long Life Family Study.
New York City, United States. In Front Genet, 2012
These two loci harbor a number of novel candidate genes with SNPs, and our gene-wise association analysis identified multiple genes, including DCAF7, POLG2, CEP95, and SMURF2 at 17q23.2; and RASGEF1A, HNRNPF, ANF487, CSTF2T, and PRKG1 at 10q11.21.
