Homozygosity mapping in autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa families detects novel mutations.
Montpellier, France. In Mol Vis, 2012
RESULTS: We found ten mutations, seven of which were novel mutations in eight known genes, including RP1, IMPG2, NR2E3, PDE6A, PDE6B, RLBP1, CNGB1, and C2ORF71, in ten out of 15 families.
Differential neuroglycan C expression during retinal degeneration in Rpe65-/- mice.
Sion, Switzerland. In Mol Vis, 2007
PURPOSE: An increased mRNA expression of the genes coding for the extracellular matrix proteins neuroglycan C (NGC), interphotoreceptor matrix proteoglycan 2 (IMPG2), and CD44 antigen (CD44) has been observed during retinal degeneration in mice with a targeted disruption of the Rpe65 gene (Rpe65-/- mouse).
Insights into the evolution of the ErbB receptor family and their ligands from sequence analysis.
Nashville, United States. In Bmc Evol Biol, 2005
The recent identification of several new ligands for the ErbB receptors supports this characterization of an ErbB ligand; further, applying this characterization to available sequences suggests additional potential ligands for these receptors, the EGF modules from previously identified proteins: interphotoreceptor matrix proteoglycan-2, the alpha and beta subunit of meprin A, and mucins 3, 4, 12, and 17.
