Overexpression of native Saccharomyces cerevisiae ER-to-Golgi SNARE genes increased heterologous cellulase secretion.
Stellenbosch, South Africa. In Appl Microbiol Biotechnol, Jan 2016
Co-overexpression of the most promising exocytic SNARE components identified in literature for secretory enhancement of the cellulolytic proteins tested (SSO1 for Sf-Cel3A and SNC1 for Te-Cel7A) with the most effective ER-to-Golgi SNARE components identified in this study (SED5 for both Sf-Cel3A and Te-Cel7A) yielded variable results, with Sf-Cel3A improved by 131 % and Te-Cel7A yielding no improvement.
Endogenous microRNAs in human microvascular endothelial cells regulate mRNAs encoded by hypertension-related genes.
Milwaukee, United States. In Hypertension, Oct 2015
The result indicated significant suppression of the abundance of mRNA encoded by ADM by endogenous miR-181a-5p, ATP2B1 by the miR-27 family, FURIN by miR-125a-5p, FGF5 by the let-7 family, GOSR2 by miR-27a-3p, JAG1 by miR-21-5p, SH2B3 by miR-30a-5p, miR-98, miR-181a-5p, and the miR-125 family, TBX3 by the miR-92 family, ADRA1B by miR-22-3p, ADRA2A by miR-30a-5p and miR-30e-5p, ADRA2B by miR-30e-5p, ADRB1 by the let-7 family and miR-98, EDNRB by the miR-92 family, and NOX4 by the miR-92 family, miR-100-5p, and miR-99b-5p (n=3-9; P<0.05 versus scrambled anti-miR).
Genetic variants in novel pathways influence blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk.
In Nature, 2011
This genome-wide association study of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, which used a multi-stage design in 200,000 individuals of European descent, identified sixteen novel loci: six of these loci contain genes previously known or suspected to regulate blood pressure (GUCY1A3-GUCY1B3, NPR3-C5orf23, ADM, FURIN-FES, GOSR2, GNAS-EDN3); the other ten provide new clues to blood pressure physiology.
Branchiootorenal Spectrum Disorders
Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 1999
Molecular genetic testing of EYA1 (BOR1, BOS1) detects mutations in approximately 40% of individuals with the clinical diagnosis of BOR/BOS.
Ypt1p implicated in v-SNARE activation.
New Haven, United States. In Nature, 1995
Here we show that Bos1p, the v-SNARE of yeast endoplasmic reticulum-to-Golgi transport vesicles, pairs with another integral membrane protein of similar topology (Sec22p) on vesicles.
