Multiple Genetic Variants Associated with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis in a Han Chinese Population.
Nanjing, China. In Clin Rev Allergy Immunol, 19 Mar 2015
In 1070 PBC patients and 1198 controls, we observed highly significant associations at CD80 (rs2293370, P = 2.67 × 10(-8)) and TNFSF15 (rs4979462, P = 3.86 × 10(-8)) and significant associations at 17q12-21 (rs9303277), PDGFB (rs715505), NF-κB1 (rs7665090), IL12RB2 (rs11209050), and STAT4 (rs7574865; all corrected P values <0.01).
Genetic basis of rheumatoid arthritis: a current review.
Yokohama, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, Oct 2014
In addition, we discuss the pathologic mechanism of the disease by examining the combined findings of genetic and functional studies of individual RA-associated genes, including HLA-DRB1, PADI4, PTPN22, TNFAIP3, STAT4, and CCR6.
Rheumatoid arthritis susceptibility genes: An overview.
Poznań, Poland. In World J Orthop, Oct 2014
These genes include protein tyrosine phosphatase, nonreceptor type 22, Peptidyl Arginine Deiminase type IV, signal transducer and activator of transcription 4, cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4, tumor necrosis factor-receptor associated factor 1/complement component 5, tumor necrosis factor and others.
Exacerbating factors induce different gene expression profiles in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from asthmatics, patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and healthy subjects.
Łódź, Poland. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, 2013
RESULTS: rDer p 1 significantly up-regulated the expression of PLA2G4A, PLA2G6, PLA2G15, CYSLTR1, LB4R2, PTGS1, PTGS2, FOXP1, GATA3, HDAC2, IREB2, PPARG, STAT4, TSLP and CHI3L1 genes in asthmatics in comparison to healthy subjects.
TH1/TH2 cell differentiation and molecular signals.
Shanghai, China. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2013
IL-12 and IFN-γ make Naive CD4+ T cells highly express T-bet and STAT4 and differentiate to TH1 cells, while IL-4 make Naive CD4+ T cells highly express STAT6 and GATA3 and differentiated to TH2 cells.
STATs get their move on.
Stony Brook, United States. In Jakstat, 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.
