The genetic basis of graves' disease.
Warsaw, Poland. In Curr Genomics, 2011
We review recent findings implicating variants of FCRL3 (gene for FC receptor-like-3 protein), SCGB3A2 (gene for secretory uteroglobin-related protein 1- UGRP1) as well as other unverified possible candidate genes for GD selected through their documented association with type 1 diabetes mellitus: Tenr-IL2-IL21, CAPSL (encoding calcyphosine-like protein), IFIH1(gene for interferon-induced helicase C domain 1), AFF3, CD226 and PTPN2.
Origins and evolution of ADAR-mediated RNA editing.
Hangzhou, China. In Iubmb Life, 2009
ADAR1 and ADAR2 arose by gene duplications in early metazoan evolution, approximately 700 million years ago, while ADAR3 and TENR might originate after Urochordata-Vertebrata divergence.
Statistical modelling and phylogenetic analysis of a deaminase domain.
Berkeley, United States. In J Comput Biol, 1997
In some of the newly identified DM domains, the glutamate is changed to a residue that could not function as a proton shuttle and in one instance (Mus musculus spermatid protein TENR) the cysteines are also changed to lysine and serine.
