Transglutaminase 2-mediated activation of β-catenin signaling has a critical role in warfarin-induced vascular calcification.

Warfarin-induced calcification in A10 vascular smooth muscle cells is associated with the activation of beta-catenin signaling. Vascular cells with genetically or pharmacologically reduced TG2 activity fail to activate beta-catenin in response to warfarin.

Hitomi et al., Nagoya, Japan. In Cytotechnology, 2011
In this study, we have established a novel screening system that enables identification of cDNA sequence encoding favorable primary structure as a substrate for tissue-type transglutaminase (TGase 2), a multifunctional and ubiquitously expressing isozyme.

Tissue-type transglutaminase (tTG), which has a role in neurodegeneration, is upregulated after ICH.
Role of transglutaminases in cuff-induced atherosclerotic lesion formation in femoral arteries of ApoE3 Leiden mice.
Bakker et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Atherosclerosis, 2010
In this study we investigate the influence of combined inhibition of both tissue-type transglutaminase (TG2) and the plasma transglutaminase FXIIIA on early lesion development.

Involvement of tissue transglutaminase in endothelin 1-induced hypertrophy in cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes.
Zheng et al., Beijing, China. In Hypertension, 2009
Tissue-type transglutaminase (tTG) may act as a positive regulator of the hypertrophic program in response to ET-1. This is attributable to signaling activity of tTG rather than transglutaminase activity.
