Genome wide association and linkage analyses identified three loci-4q25, 17q23.2, and 10q11.21-associated with variation in leukocyte telomere length: the Long Life Family Study.
New York City, United States. In Front Genet, 2012
These two loci harbor a number of novel candidate genes with SNPs, and our gene-wise association analysis identified multiple genes, including DCAF7, POLG2, CEP95, and SMURF2 at 17q23.2; and RASGEF1A, HNRNPF, ANF487, CSTF2T, and PRKG1 at 10q11.21.
Gene expression patterns of hippocampus and cerebral cortex of senescence-accelerated mouse treated with Huang-Lian-Jie-Du decoction.
Beijing, China. In Neurosci Lett, 2008
The results showed that HL has the significant modulating effects on age-related changes of the gene expressions in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex in SAMP8, which include genes that involved in signal transduction (Dusp12, Rps6ka1, Rab26, Penk1, Nope, Leng8, Syde1, Phb, Def8, Ihpk1, Tac2, Pik3c2a), protein metabolism (Ttc3, Amfr, Prr6, Ube2d2), cell growth and development (Ngrn, Anln, Dip3b, Acrbp), nucleic acid metabolism (Fhit, Itm2c, Cstf2t, Ddx3x, Ercc5, Pcgfr6), energy metabolism (Stub1, Uqcr, Nsf), immune response (C1qb), regulation of transcription (D1ertd161e, Gcn5l2, Ssu72), transporter (Slc17a7, mt-Co1), nervous system development (Trim3), neurogila cell differentiation (Tspan2) and 24 genes whose biological function and process were still unknown.
Reexamining the polyadenylation signal: were we wrong about AAUAAA?
Lubbock, United States. In Mol Cell Endocrinol, 2002
Recent research in our laboratory has uncovered a new form of an essential polyadenylation protein, tauCstF-64, that is most highly expressed in male germ cells, and to a smaller extent in the brain, and which we propose plays a significant role in AAUAAA-independent mRNA polyadenylation in germ cells.
