Purine metabolism gene deregulation in Parkinson's disease.
Barcelona, Spain. In Neuropathol Appl Neurobiol, Dec 2015
METHODS: Analysis of mRNA using real-time quantitative PCR of 22 genes involved in purine metabolism in the substantia nigra, putamen and cerebral cortex area 8 in PD at different stages of disease progression, and localization of selected purine metabolism-related enzymes with immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Reduced expression of adenylate kinase 2 (AKA2), AK3, AK4, adenine phosphoribosyltransferase, ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase 1 (ENTPD1), ENTPD3, nonmetastatic cells 3, nucleoside-diphosphatese kinase 3 (NME1), NME7 and purine nucleoside phosphorylase 1 (PNP1) mRNA in the substantia nigra at stages 3-6; up-regulation of ADA mRNA in the frontal cortex area 8 at stages 3-4 and of AK1, AK5, NME4, NME5, NME6, 5'-nucleotidase (NT5E), PNP1 and prune homolog Drosophila at stages 5-6.
Hypermutation of DPYD Deregulates Pyrimidine Metabolism and Promotes Malignant Progression.
Merced, United States. In Mol Cancer Res, Dec 2015
In addition, dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD) and other important pyrimidine-related genes: DPYS, AK9, CAD, CANT1, ENTPD1, NME6, NT5C1A, POLE, POLQ, POLR3B, PRIM2, REV3L, and UPP2 are significantly enriched in somatic mutations relative to the background mutation rate.
Acute L-glutamine deprivation affects the expression of TP53-related protein genes in U87 glioma cells.
In Fiziol Zh, 2013
We have studied the effect of acute L-glutamine deprivation on the expression oftumor protein 53 (TP53)-related genes such as TOPORS (topoisomerase I binding, arginine/serine-rich, E3 ubiquitin protein ligase), TP53BPI (TP53 bindingprotein 1), TP53TG1 (TP53 inducible gene 1), SESN1 (p53 regulatedPA26 nuclear protein), NME6 (NME/NM23 nucleoside diphosphate kinase 6), and ZMAT3 (zinc finger Matrin-type 3) in glioma cells with ERN1 knockdown.
Nme protein family evolutionary history, a vertebrate perspective.
Rennes, France. In Bmc Evol Biol, 2008
Nme1, Nme2, Nme3, and Nme4 belong to Group I while vertebrate Nme5, Nme6, Nme7, Nme8, and Nme9 belong to Group II.
