Genome-wide scan for selection signatures in six cattle breeds in South Africa.
South Africa. In Genet Sel Evol, 2014
In addition, a number of candidate genes associated with the nervous system (WNT5B, FMOD, PRELP, and ATP2B), immune response (CYM, CDC6, and CDK10), production (MTPN, IGFBP4, TGFB1, and AJAP1) and reproductive performance (ADIPOR2, OVOS2, and RBBP8) were also detected as being under selection.
The consequence of PRELP overexpression on skin.
Montréal, Canada. In Matrix Biol, 2007
PRELP overexpression leads to a connective tissue phenotype in the skin, where the organization of collagen fibrils in the dermis was perturbed and the thickness of the hypodermal fat layer was diminished.
Noncollagenous, nonproteoglycan macromolecules of cartilage.
Tampa, United States. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 1999
The putative roles of these proteins range from involvement in matrix organization or matrix-cell signaling (PRELP, chondroadherin, cartilage oligomeric protein and cartilage matrix protein) through to molecules that are likely to be involved with modulation of the chondrocyte phenotype (CD-RAP, CDMPs, chondromodulin and pleiotrophin).
