Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression Alteration in Human Middle Ear Epithelial Cells Induced by Asian Sand Dust.
Seoul, South Korea. In Clin Exp Otorhinolaryngol, Dec 2015
A total of 11 genes including CSF3, DKK1, FOSL1, FST, TERT, MMP13, PTHLH, SPRY2, TGFBR2, THBS1, and TIMP1 acted as main components of pathway associated with 2-fold down regulated genes.
Carcinogenic mechanisms of endometrial cancer: involvement of genetics and epigenetics.
Tokyo, Japan. In J Obstet Gynaecol Res, 2014
Possible carcinogenic mechanisms include imbalance between endometrial proliferation by unopposed estrogen and the mismatch repair (MMR) system; hypermethylation of the MMR gene hMLH1; mutation of PTEN, β-catenin and K-ras genes in type I endometrial cancer and of HER-2/neu and p53 genes in type II endometrial cancer; hypermethylation of SPRY2, RASSF1A, RSK4, CHFR and CDH1; and methylation of tumor suppressor microRNAs, including miR-124, miR-126, miR-137, miR-491, miR-129-2 and miR-152.
MicroRNA-21 in cardiovascular disease.
Newark, United States. In J Cardiovasc Transl Res, 2010
Programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4), phosphatase and tensin homology deleted from chromosome 10 (PTEN), sprouty1 (SPRY1), and sprouty2 (SPRY2) are the current identified target genes of miR-21 that are involved in miR-21-mediated cardiovascular effects.
Sef is a feedback-induced antagonist of Ras/MAPK-mediated FGF signalling.
Strasbourg, France. In Nat Cell Biol, 2002
On the basis of similarities in their expression patterns during embryonic development, we have identified five genes that define a synexpression group -- fgf8, fgf3, sprouty2, sprouty4, as well as a novel gene, sef (similar expression to fgf genes).
