Orthostatic Blood Pressure Changes and Subclinical Markers of Atherosclerosis.
Wakayama, Japan. In Am J Hypertens, Sep 2015
Stepwise regression analysis adjusted for age, sex, BMI, baseline SBP, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, fasting glucose, HbA1c, hs-CRP, IMT, late systolic peak of the pressure wave form (SBP2), and baPWV confirmed that baPWV, SBP2, and triglycerides were independently related to orthostatic BP changes.
Selective up-regulation of human selenoproteins in response to oxidative stress.
France. In Free Radic Biol Med, 2014
While a modest change in mRNA levels was noted, we identified a novel translational control mechanism stimulated by oxidative stress that is characterized by upregulation of UGA-selenocysteine recoding efficiency and relocalization of SBP2, EFsec and L30 recoding factors from cytoplasm to nucleus.
Inherited defects of thyroid hormone metabolism.
Chicago, United States. In Ann Endocrinol (paris), 2011
Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element required for the biosynthesis of selenoproteins, and selenocysteine insertion sequence (SECIS) binding protein 2 (SBP2) represents a key trans-acting factor for the cotranslational insertion of selenocysteine into selenoproteins.
