Thymosin beta 4, X-linked

thymosin beta 4, Tbeta4
This gene encodes an actin sequestering protein which plays a role in regulation of actin polymerization. The protein is also involved in cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation. This gene escapes X inactivation and has a homolog on chromosome Y. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Thymosin β4 and cardiac regeneration: are we missing a beat?
Chaudhry et al., New York City, United States. In Stem Cell Rev, 2013
Priming with thymosin beta 4, a peptide which has been suggested to be critical for cardiac development and to have cardio-protective properties, was recently shown to induce differentiation of EPDCs into cardiomyocytes in a small animal model of myocardial infarction.
Regulation of glycogen synthase kinase-3 by thymosin beta-4 is associated with gastric cancer cell migration.
Moon et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Int J Cancer, 2012
investigated whether GSK-3 activity is regulated by thymosin beta-4 (Tbeta4) and associated with Tbeta4-mediated migration in gastric cancer cells; expression of GSK-3alpha, beta-catenin and E-cadherin could be negatively regulated by Tbeta4 induced ERK phosphorylation; suggests that Tbeta4 could be a novel regulator to control Wnt signal pathway
Thymosin β4: a potential novel dry eye therapy.
Crockford et al., Detroit, United States. In Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2012
The purpose of this manuscript is to review the clinical entity of dry eye syndrome (DES) and to provide a scientific basis and rationale for the usage of thymosin beta 4 (Tβ4) as a novel therapy for DES.
