New Delhi, India. In Omics, Nov 2015
These included four genes (PTK2, RND1, RND3, and UBL3) with promoter hypermethylation and downregulation, and 19 genes (SEMG2, CD97, CTNND2, CADM3, OMD, NEFM, FBN2, CTNNB1, DLX6, UGT2B4, CCDC80, PZP, SERPINA4, TNFSF13B, NPC1, COL1A1, TAC3, BMP8A, and IL22RA2) with promoter hypomethylation and upregulation.
Human induced hepatic lineage-oriented stem cells: autonomous specification of human iPS cells toward hepatocyte-like cells without any exogenous differentiation factors.
Tokyo, Japan. In Plos One, 2014
After 12 days of this culture, the differentiated cells significantly enhanced gene expression of serum hepatic proteins (ALB, SERPINA1, TTR, TF, FABP1, FGG, AGT, RBP4, and AHSG), conjugating enzymes (UGT2B4, UGT2B7, UGT2B10, GSTA2, and GSTA5), transporters (SULT2A1, SLC13A5, and SLCO2B1), and urea cycle-related enzymes (ARG1 and CPS1).
FXR: a target for cholestatic syndromes?
New Haven, United States. In Expert Opin Ther Targets, 2006
The nuclear farnesoid X receptor (FXR) plays a pivotal role in maintaining bile acid homeostasis by regulating key genes involved in bile acid synthesis, metabolism and transport, including CYP7A1, UGT2B4, BSEP, MDR3, MRP2, ASBT, I-BABP, NTCP and OSTalpha-OSTbeta in humans.
