Proteomics of human aqueous humor.
Bengaluru, India. In Omics, May 2015
Sorbitol dehydrogenase (SORD), filensin (BFSP1), and phakinin (BFSP2) are some of the proteins that have not been previously reported in the aqueous humor.
Molecular and structural analysis of genetic variations in congenital cataract.
New Delhi, India. In Mol Vis, 2012
Crystallin, alpha A (CRYAA), CRYAB, CRYGs, CRYBA1, CRYBA4, CRYBB1, CRYBB2, CRYBB3, beaded filament structural protein 1 (BFSP1), gap function protein, alpha 3 (GJA3), GJA8, and heat shock transcription factor 4 gene genes were amplified.
A missense mutation in CRYGD linked with autosomal dominant congenital cataract of aculeiform type.
Amritsar, India. In Mol Cell Biochem, 2012
Mutation screening in twenty three candidate genes including crystallins (CRYAA, CRYAB, CRYBA1/A3, CRYBA2, CRYBA4, CRYBB1, CRYBB2, CRYBB3, CRYGA, CRYGB, CRYGC, CRYGD, and CRYGS), gap junctional channels; connexins (GJA8, GJA3), beaded filament chain proteins (BFSP1, BFSP2), major intrinsic protein (MIP), lens intrinsic membrane protein-2 (LIM2), transcriptional factor (MAF), and in genes encoding for membrane-associated proteins (TMEM114, CHMP4B, EPHA2) was performed by bi-directional sequence analysis of the amplified products.
Infantile spasms: treatment challenges.
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. In Curr Treat Options Neurol, 2012
Finally, a very promising drug has been developed (CP-115) that may altogether replace the current therapeutic regimens in the near future.
Efficient generation of lens progenitor cells from cataract patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells.
Shanghai, China. In Plos One, 2011
Next, we performed a 3-step induction procedure: HLE-iPS cells were differentiated into large numbers of lens progenitor-like cells with defined factors (Noggin, BMP and FGF2), and we determined that these cells expressed lens-specific markers (PAX6, SOX2, SIX3, CRYAB, CRYAA, BFSP1, and MIP).
The roles of dopamine and serotonin, and of their receptors, in regulating sleep and waking.
Montevideo, Uruguay. In Prog Brain Res, 2007
Recently, DA neurons were characterised in the ventral periaqueductal grey matter (VPAG) that express Fos protein during W. Lesioning of these cells resulted in an increase of SWS and REMS, which led to the proposal that VPAG DA neurons may play a role in the promotion of W. Systemic injection of full agonists at postsynaptic 5-HT(1A) (8-OH-DPAT, flesinoxan), 5-HT(1B) (CGS 12066B, CP-94,253), 5-HT(2A/2C) (DOI, DOM) and 5-HT(3) (m-chlorophenylbiguanide) receptors increases W and reduces SWS and REMS.
