Transcriptome profiling of human FoxP3(+) regulatory T cells.
Bethesda, United States. In Hum Immunol, Jan 2016
Notably, a number of yet uncharacterized genes (RTKN2, LAYN, UTS2, CSF2RB, TRIB1, F5, CECAM4, CD70, ENC1 and NKG7) were identified and validated as being differentially expressed in human Tregs.
Meta-analysis of lipid-traits in Hispanics identifies novel loci, population-specific effects, and tissue-specific enrichment of eQTLs.
Houston, United States. In Sci Rep, Dec 2015
Genome-wide significant signals were observed in or near CELSR2, ZNF259/APOA5, KANK2/DOCK6 and NCAN/MAU2 for total cholesterol, LPL, ABCA1, ZNF259/APOA5, LIPC and CETP for HDL cholesterol, CELSR2, APOB and NCAN/MAU2 for LDL cholesterol, and GCKR, TRIB1, ZNF259/APOA5 and NCAN/MAU2 for triglycerides.
Tribbles in normal and malignant haematopoiesis.
Philadelphia, United States. In Biochem Soc Trans, Nov 2015
The three mammalian Tribbles homologues, Trib1, Trib2 and Trib3 are characterized by conserved motifs, including a pseudokinase domain and a C-terminal E3 ligase-binding domain.
Deciphering the role of TRIB1 in regulatory T-cells.
Nantes, France. In Biochem Soc Trans, Nov 2015
We reported on the overexpression of tribbles-1 (TRIB1) in Tregs compared with their counterpart naive T-cells and that TRIB1 interacts with the master molecule of Tregs, forkhead box P3 (FOXP3), a transcription factor essential for Treg suppressive activity.
Genome-wide association study identifies loci influencing concentrations of liver enzymes in plasma.
London, United Kingdom. In Nat Genet, 2011
We identified 69 candidate genes, including genes involved in biliary transport (ATP8B1 and ABCB11), glucose, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism (FADS1, FADS2, GCKR, JMJD1C, HNF1A, MLXIPL, PNPLA3, PPP1R3B, SLC2A2 and TRIB1), glycoprotein biosynthesis and cell surface glycobiology (ABO, ASGR1, FUT2, GPLD1 and ST3GAL4), inflammation and immunity (CD276, CDH6, GCKR, HNF1A, HPR, ITGA1, RORA and STAT4) and glutathione metabolism (GSTT1, GSTT2 and GGT), as well as several genes of uncertain or unknown function (including ABHD12, EFHD1, EFNA1, EPHA2, MICAL3 and ZNF827).
Newly identified loci that influence lipid concentrations and risk of coronary artery disease.
Ann Arbor, United States. In Nat Genet, 2008
Overall, we identify strongly associated variants in eleven loci previously implicated in lipid metabolism (ABCA1, the APOA5-APOA4-APOC3-APOA1 and APOE-APOC clusters, APOB, CETP, GCKR, LDLR, LPL, LIPC, LIPG and PCSK9) and also in several newly identified loci (near MVK-MMAB and GALNT2, with variants primarily associated with high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; near SORT1, with variants primarily associated with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol; near TRIB1, MLXIPL and ANGPTL3, with variants primarily associated with triglycerides; and a locus encompassing several genes near NCAN, with variants strongly associated with both triglycerides and LDL cholesterol).
