Genetic variants contribute to gene expression variability in humans.
College Station, United States. In Genetics, 2013
Using a data set of gene expression in lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) derived from 210 HapMap individuals, we identify cis-acting evQTL involving 218 distinct genes, among which 8 genes, ADCY1, CTNNA2, DAAM2, FERMT2, IL6, PLOD2, SNX7, and TNFRSF11B, are cross-validated using an extra expression data set of the same LCLs.
Do GnRH analogues directly affect human endometrial epithelial cell gene expression?
Norfolk, United States. In Mol Hum Reprod, 2010
The specific aims were: (i) to study the modulatory effect of GnRH analogues by RT-PCR [in the absence and presence of E(2) and P4, and cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)] on mRNA expression of genes modulated during the window of implantation in GnRH analogues/rFSH-treated assisted reproductive technology cycles including OPTINEURIN (OPTN), CHROMATIN MODIFYING PROTEIN (CHMP1A), PROSAPOSIN (PSAP), IGFBP-5 and SORTING NEXIN 7 (SNX7), and (ii) to analyze the 5'-flanking regions of such genes for the presence of putative steroid-response elements [estrogen-response elements (EREs) and P4-response element (PREs)].
