Loss of neurogenesis in Hydra leads to compensatory regulation of neurogenic and neurotransmission genes in epithelial cells.
Genève, Switzerland. In Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci, Feb 2016
By crossing these results with cell-type-specific transcriptomics, we identified epithelial genes up-regulated upon loss of neurogenesis: transcription factors (Dlx, Dlx1, DMBX1/Manacle, Ets1, Gli3, KLF11, LMX1A, ZNF436, Shox1), epitheliopeptides (Arminins, PW peptide), neurosignalling components (CAMK1D, DDCl2, Inx1), ligand-ion channel receptors (CHRNA1, NaC7), G-Protein Coupled Receptors and FMRFRL.
Autoimmune predisposition in Down syndrome may result from a partial central tolerance failure due to insufficient intrathymic expression of AIRE and peripheral antigens.
Barcelona, Spain. In J Immunol, 2014
More importantly, decreased expression of AIRE was accompanied by a reduction of pGE because expression of tissue-restricted Ags, CHRNA1, GAD1, PLP1, KLK3, SAG, TG, and TSHR, was reduced.
Congenital myasthenic syndromes and the neuromuscular junction.
Oxford, United Kingdom. In Curr Opin Neurol, 2014
However, mutations in lipoprotein-like receptor 4, a long-time candidate gene for congenital myasthenia, have now been described and a new pathogenic splicing mutation in the nonfunctional exon of CHRNA1 has been reported.
Identifying genetic variants for heart rate variability in the acetylcholine pathway.
Groningen, Netherlands. In Plos One, 2013
We assessed whether 443 genotyped and imputed common genetic variants in eight key genes (CHAT, SLC18A3, SLC5A7, CHRNB4, CHRNA3, CHRNA, CHRM2 and ACHE) of the acetylcholine pathway were associated with variation in an established measure of heart rate variability reflecting parasympathetic control of the heart rhythm, the root mean square of successive differences (RMSSD) of normal RR intervals.
Congenital myasthenic syndrome: a brief review.
Curitiba, Brazil. In Pediatr Neurol, 2012
Therefore, genetic testing may be necessary to identify specific mutations in CHAT, COLQ, LAMB2, CHRNA, CHRNB, CHRND, CHRNE, CHRNG, RAPSN, DOK7, MUSK, AGRN, SCN4A, GFPT1, or PLEC1 genes.
