Genetics of vasculitis.
Johannesburg, South Africa. In Curr Opin Rheumatol, 15 Dec 2014
These associations include ERAP1, CCR1-CCR3, STAT4, KLRC4, GIMAP4, and TNFAIP3 in Behçet's disease; BLK and CD40 in Kawasaki disease; SERPINA1 and SEMA6A in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody associated vasculitides; IL12B and FCGR2A/ FCGR2A in Takayasu arteritis; and CECR1 in a newly defined vascular inflammatory syndrome associated with adenosine deaminase (ADA2) deficiency.
Genetic basis of rheumatoid arthritis: a current review.
Yokohama, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 19 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, 18 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.
A Multilocus Genetic Study in a Cohort of Italian SLE Patients Confirms the Association with STAT4 Gene and Describes a New Association with HCP5 Gene.
Roma, Italy. In Plos One, Dec 2013
We aimed at analyzing previously identified loci associated with SLE or with other autoimmune and/or inflammatory disorders (STAT4, IL10, IL23R, IRAK1, PSORS1C1, HCP5, MIR146a, PTPN2, ERAP1, ATG16L1, IRGM) in a sample of Italian SLE patients in order to verify or confirm their possible involvement and relative contribution in the disease.
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.
