Analysis of metabolic effects of menthol on WFS1-deficient mice.
Tartu, Estonia. In Physiol Rep, Jan 2016
In this study, we investigated the physiological regulation of energy metabolism in wild-type (WT) and WFS1-deficient (Wfs1KO) mice by measuring the effects of menthol treatment on the O2 consumption, CO2 production, rectal body temperature, and heat production.
The Association of Type 2 Diabetes Loci Identified in Genome-Wide Association Studies with Metabolic Syndrome and Its Components in a Chinese Population with Type 2 Diabetes.
Beijing, China. In Plos One, 2014
Genetic variants of WFS1, CDKAL1, CDKN2BAS, TCF7L2, HHEX, KCNQ1, TSPAN8/LGR5, FTO, and TCF2 were associated with the risk for T2D with MetS, as well as the risk for development of T2D with at least one of the MetS components (P < 0.05).
Strategy for the customized mass screening of genetic sensorineural hearing loss in koreans.
Seoul, South Korea. In Korean J Audiol, 2014
The other causative genes were MRNR1, WFS1, COCH, TECTA, MYO6, COL11A2, EYA4, GJB3, OTOF, STRC, MYO3A, and GJB2.
Comorbidity of GJB2 and WFS1 mutations in one family.
Tokyo, Japan. In Gene, 2012
Two individuals who had heterozygosity of GJB2 mutations and heterozygosity of WFS1 mutations showed low-frequency hearing loss. One individual who had homozygosity of GJB2 mutation without WFS1 mutation had moderate, gradual high tone hearing loss.
Clinical risk factors, DNA variants, and the development of type 2 diabetes.
Malmö, Sweden. In N Engl J Med, 2008
Variants in 11 genes (TCF7L2, PPARG, FTO, KCNJ11, NOTCH2, WFS1, CDKAL1, IGF2BP2, SLC30A8, JAZF1, and HHEX) were significantly associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes independently of clinical risk factors; variants in 8 of these genes were associated with impaired beta-cell function.
