Characterization of DNA Damage-Induced Cellular Senescence by Ionizing Radiation in Endothelial Cells.
In Int J Radiat Biol, 29 Nov 2013
We found that IGFBP5 (insulin-like growth factor binding protein 5), PLAT (plasminogen activator), SNAI2 (snail homolog 2), JAG1 (jagged 1), SPRY4 (Sprouty homolog 4), and CD44 were upregulated, whereas CFB (complement factor B), VCAM1 (vascular cell adhesion molecule 1), AQP1 (aquaporin 1), LOXL1 (lysyl oxidase-like 1), and RBPMS (RNA-binding protein with multiple splicing) were down-regulated in both radiation-damaged and old cells.
Genetic changes in nonepithelial ovarian cancer.
Leuven, Belgium. In Expert Rev Anticancer Ther, Jul 2013
In the latter, recent genome-wide association studies have identified seven susceptibility loci near KITLG, SPRY4, UKC2, BAK1, DMRT1, TERT and ATF7IP.
Mutations in FGF17, IL17RD, DUSP6, SPRY4, and FLRT3 are identified in individuals with congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.
Lausanne, Switzerland. In Am J Hum Genet, Jun 2013
Except for FGF18 and SPRY2, all other genes were found to be mutated in CHH individuals: FGF17 (n = 3 individuals), IL17RD (n = 8), DUSP6 (n = 5), SPRY4 (n = 14), and FLRT3 (n = 3).
Familial testicular germ cell tumours.
Bethesda, United States. In Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab, 2010
Moreover, two genome-wide association studies of predominantly sporadic but also familial cases of TGCT have identified three additional susceptibility loci, KITLG, SPRY4 and BAK1.
High marks for GWAS.
Bethesda, United States. In Nat Genet, 2009
Two genome-wide association studies for testicular cancer report associations at three new loci, including two candidate genes previously implicated in testicular development, KITLG (ligand for the receptor tyrosine kinase) and SPRY4 (sprouty 4).
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).
