Quantitative candidate gene association studies of metabolic traits in Han Chinese type 2 diabetes patients.
Tianjin, China. In Genet Mol Res, 2014
We found that CAMTA1, ABI2, VHL, KAT2B, PKHD1, ESR1, TOX, SLC30A8, SFI1, and MYH9 polymorphisms were associated with HbA1c, FPG, and/or P2PG; GCK, HHEX, TCF7L2, KCNQ1, and TBX5 polymorphisms were associated with insulin resistance-related traits; ABCG2, SLC2A9, and PKHD1 polymorphisms were associated with SUA; CAMTA1, VHL, KAT2B, PON1, NUB1, SLITRK5, SMAD3, FTO, FANCA, and PCSK2 polymorphisms were associated with blood lipid traits; CAMTA1, SPAG16, TOX, KCNQ1, ACACB, and MYH9 polymorphisms were associated with blood pressure; and UBE2E3, SPAG16, SLC2A9, CDKAL1, CDKN2A/B, TCF7L2, SMAD3, and PNPLA3 polymorphisms were associated with BMI (all P values <0.05).
The stability of herpes simplex virus 1 ICP0 early after infection is defined by the RING finger and the UL13 protein kinase.
Chicago, United States. In J Virol, 2014
We report here that (i) the degradation of ICP0 is not infected cell specific, (ii) the degradation does not require the interaction of ICP0 with either UbcH5a, UbcH6, or UbcH9, (iii) ICP0 is degraded both early and late in cells infected with a mutant lacking the UL13 protein kinase, (iv) ICP0 encoded by wild-type virus or the ΔUL13 mutant is stable in cells transfected with a plasmid encoding UL13 before infection, (v) ICP0 carrying mutations in the RING finger domain is stable both early and late in infection, and, finally, (vi) in cells infected with both wild type and RING finger mutant only the wild-type ICP0 is rapidly degraded at early times.
Identification of cellular proteins required for replication of human immunodeficiency virus type 1.
Galveston, United States. In Aids Res Hum Retroviruses, 2012
Several genes regulating diverse pathways were found to be required for HIV-1 replication, including DHX8, DNAJA1, GTF2E1, GTF2E2, HAP1, KALRN, UBA3, UBE2E3, and VMP1.
Expression patterns of ubiquitin conjugating enzyme UbcM2 during mouse embryonic development.
Harbin, China. In Gene Expr, 2011
Ubiquitin conjugating enzyme UbcM2 (Ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes from Mice, the number reveals the identification order) has been implicated in many critical processes, such like growth-inhibiting, mediating cell proliferation and regulation of some transcription factor, but the expression profile during mouse embryo development remains unclear.
