Tissue-specific Gene Expression in Rat Hearts and Aortas in a Model of Vascular Nitrate Tolerance.
Szeged, Hungary. In J Cardiovasc Pharmacol, May 2015
Of 7742 genes analyzed by DNA microarray, we found that although the expression of 25 genes changed significantly in the heart (increased: Tas2r119, Map6, Cd59, Kcnh2, Kcnh3, Senp6, Mcpt1, Tshb, Haus1, Vipr1, Lrn3, Lifr; decreased: Ihh, Fgfr1, Cryge, Krt9, Agrn, C4bpb, Fcer1a, Csf3, Hsd17b11, Hsd11b2, Ctnnbl1, Prpg1, Hsf1), only 14 genes were altered in the aorta (increased: Tas2r119, Ihh, Rrad, Npm1, Snai1; decreased: Tubb2b, Usp15, Sema6c, Wfdc2, Rps21, Ramp2, Galr1, Atxn1, Lhx1) in vascular nitrate tolerance.
Ubiquitin removal in the TGF-β pathway.
New York City, United States. In Nat Cell Biol, 2012
Both ubiquitin-specific peptidase-4 (USP4) and -15 (USP15) extend the life of activated receptors against the negative pressure of receptor-ubiquitinating complexes, but through distinct modes of action.
