[Segment Cloning and Expression of Human VIGILIN Gene].
In Sichuan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban, Sep 2015
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the mechanisms of interaction between high-density lipoprotein binding protein (HDLBP)-VIGILIN with other proteins, we cloned VIGILIN cDNA N, KH1-7, KH8-12, KH13-14, and C fragments separately into expression vector, and identify the expressed proteins.
Less is More-Optimization of DNA Extraction from Canine Feces.
Davis, United States. In J Forensic Sci, Aug 2015
The greatest yield of intact DNA was obtained using a modified silica matrix extraction protocol (VGL-Fecal) on 30-50 mg of fecal matter collected from the external surface of a stool that had been dried for 24 h.
Genetic predisposition of human plasma triglyceride concentrations.
Praha, Czech Republic. In Physiol Res, 2014
Rare mutations (mainly in the lipoprotein lipase and apolipoprotein C2) along with common polymorphisms (within apolipoprotein A5, glucokinase regulatory protein, apolipoprotein B, apolipo-protein E, cAMP responsive element binding protein 3-like 3, glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored HDL-binding protein 1) play an important role in determining plasma TG levels.
Triglyceride lipases and atherosclerosis.
Umeå, Sweden. In Curr Opin Lipidol, 2010
RECENT FINDINGS: Understanding of LPL action has taken major steps with the discovery of lipase maturation factor 1 as a specific endoplasmic reticulum chaperon needed for proper folding of the lipases, glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored HDL-binding protein 1 as an endothelial cell protein needed for transport and binding of LPL and some angiopoietin-like proteins that can modulate LPL activity.
Heterochromatin: on the ADAR radar?
Columbia, United States. In Curr Biol, 2005
Vigilin proteins, the absence of which is known to cause abnormalities in heterochromatin, have been found to bind edited RNAs.
