Whole genome SNP genotyping and exome sequencing reveal novel genetic variants and putative causative genes in congenital hyperinsulinism.
Milano, Italy. In Plos One, 2012
This strategy allowed the identification of the potential causative mutations in genes implicated in the regulation of insulin secretion such as transmembrane proteins (CACNA1A, KCNH6, KCNJ10, NOTCH2, RYR3, SCN8A, TRPV3, TRPC5), cytosolic (ACACB, CAMK2D, CDKAL1, GNAS, NOS2, PDE4C, PIK3R3) and mitochondrial enzymes (PC, SLC24A6), and in four genes (CSMD1, SLC37A3, SULF1, TLL1) suggested by TDT family-based association study.
More targets, more pathways and more clues for mutant p53.
Pisa, Italy. In Oncogenesis, 2012
Novel p53 candidate target genes were also identified, including ARID3B, ARNT2, CLMN, FADS1, FTH1, KPNA2, LPHN2, PARD6B, PDE4C, PIAS2, PRPF40A, PYGL and RHOBTB2, involved in the metabolism, xenobiotic responses and cell differentiation.
Isolation and characterization of smooth muscle cells from rat corpus cavernosum tissue for the study of erectile dysfunction.
Ch'ŏngju, South Korea. In Korean J Urol, 2012
The levels of PDE1A, PDE1B, PDE1C, PDE2A, PDE3A, PDE4A, PDE4B, PDE4C, PDE4D, and PDE5A mRNA in the RPSMCs were about 3.2-, 4.4-, 3.4-, 29.0-, 3.5-, 2.8-, 2.9-, 6.1-, 45.0-, and 6.0-fold the corresponding expression in RASMCs.
Expression profile of proinflammatory genes in neutrophil-enriched granulocytes stimulated with native anti-PR3 autoantibodies.
Kraków, Poland. In J Physiol Pharmacol, 2012
In stimulated neutrophils we observed up-regulation of 13 genes (CCL2, CXCL2, VCAM1, MMP9, PLCB4, PDE4C, PLA2G4C, RAC1, RHOA, IRAK1, CACNA1D, CACNB2, PTGDR), further 11 genes were up-regulated only in some donors (IL13, PF4, IL2RG, ITGB1, CD83, PLA2G7, ALOX12, AXNA1, AXNA5, LTA4H, MCR2) yet two others (HRH3 and PLA2G2D) were up-regulated in a few samples and undetectable in others.
Phosphodiesterase 4 and its inhibitors in inflammatory diseases.
Taiwan. In Chang Gung Med J, 2012
Type 4 cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDE4) are a family of low km 3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-specific phosphodiesterases including at least 20 isozymes encoded by four genes (PDE4A, PDE4B, PDE4C, and PDE4D) in mammals.
