STATs get their move on.
Stony Brook, United States. In Jakstat, Nov 2013
Nuclear import of STAT1 and STAT4 appears linked to their tyrosine phosphorylation and the formation of parallel dimers via reciprocal phosphotyrosine and Src homology 2 domain interactions.
The genetics of complex cholestatic disorders.
Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Gastroenterology, Jun 2013
In contrast, studies have associated primary biliary cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis with genes encoding major histocompatibility complex proteins and identified loci associated with microbial sensing and immune regulatory pathways outside this region, such as genes encoding IL12, STAT4, IRF5, IL2 and its receptor (IL2R), CD28, and CD80.
[Variants in the IFN ? transcription factor genes TBET, STAT1, STAT4, and HLX and the risk of pulmonary tuberculosis in a Colombian population: a case-control study].
Medellín, Colombia. In Biomedica, Jun 2013
Objective: To investigate the relationships of genetic variants in the transcription factors TBET, STAT1, STAT4, and HLX to susceptibility/resistance to pulmonary TB. Materials and methods: Eight candidate single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were selected, and genotyped in 466 unrelated pulmonary TB patients and 300 healthy controls from Colombia, and the allelic and genetic associations with TB were analyzed.
[Analysis of disease-pathway by identifying susceptible genes to primary biliary cirrhosis].
Nagasaki, Japan. In Nihon Rinsho Meneki Gakkai Kaishi, 2011
Among 21 non-HLA susceptibility loci for PBC identified in GWASs of European descent, 10 loci (CD80, IKZF3, IL7R, NFKB1, STAT4, TNFAIP2, CXCR5, MAP3K7IP1, rs6974491, DENND1B) showed significant associations in the Japanese population.
