Genetics of Venous Thrombosis: update in 2015.
Marseille, France. In Thromb Haemost, Dec 2015
To date, 17 genes have been robustly demonstrated to harbour genetic variations associated with VT risk: ABO, F2, F5, F9, F11, FGG, GP6, KNG1, PROC, PROCR, PROS1, SERPINC1, SLC44A2, STXBP5, THBD, TSPAN15 and VWF.
CLEC4M and STXBP5 gene variations contribute to von Willebrand factor level variation in von Willebrand disease.
Rotterdam, Netherlands. In J Thromb Haemost, Jun 2015
PATIENTS/METHODS: In 364 type 1 VWD and 240 type 2 VWD patients from the nationwide cross-sectional 'Willebrand in The Netherlands' (WiN) study, we studied the association between eight SNPs in STXBP5, SCARA5, ABO, VWF, STAB2, STX2, TC2N, and CLEC4M, and VWF antigen (VWF:Ag), VWF activity (VWF:Act), and bleeding phenotype as assessed with the Tosetto bleeding score.
The genetic basis of obesity-associated type 2 diabetes (diabesity) in polygenic mouse models.
Potsdam, Germany. In Mamm Genome, 2014
Outcross populations of these models have been employed in the genome-wide search for mouse diabetes genes, and have led to positional cloning of the strong candidates Pctp, Tbc1d1, Zfp69, and Ifi202b (NZO-derived obesity) and Sorcs1, Lisch-like, Tomosyn-2, App, Tsc2, and Ube2l6 (obesity caused by the ob or db mutation).
Minireview: recent developments in the regulation of glucose transporter-4 traffic: new signals, locations, and partners.
Toronto, Canada. In Endocrinology, 2005
At the cell periphery, GLUT4-containing vesicles tether, dock, and fuse with the PM assisted by the exocyst complex followed by engagement of a soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptor (SNARE) complex [with vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP)2 as the vesicular (v)-SNARE and soluble NSF-attachment protein (SNAP)23 and syntaxin4 as target (t)-SNAREs] regulated by the accessory proteins Munc18c, Synip and Tomosyn.
