Genetic Variants Associated with Lipid Profiles in Chinese Patients with Type 2 Diabetes.
Beijing, China. In Plos One, 2014
Among 4,908 Chinese T2D patients who were not taking lipid-lowering medications, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in seven genes previously found to be associated with lipid traits in genome-wide association studies conducted in populations of European ancestry (ABCA1, GCKR, BAZ1B, TOMM40, DOCK7, HNF1A, and HNF4A) were genotyped.
Genome-wide association analyses identify 18 new loci associated with serum urate concentrations.
Freiburg, Germany. In Nat Genet, 2013
By combining data from >140,000 individuals of European ancestry within the Global Urate Genetics Consortium (GUGC), we identified and replicated 28 genome-wide significant loci in association with serum urate concentrations (18 new regions in or near TRIM46, INHBB, SFMBT1, TMEM171, VEGFA, BAZ1B, PRKAG2, STC1, HNF4G, A1CF, ATXN2, UBE2Q2, IGF1R, NFAT5, MAF, HLF, ACVR1B-ACVRL1 and B3GNT4).
Williams syndrome is an epigenome-regulator disease.
Tokyo, Japan. In Endocr J, 2010
A human multi-protein complex (WINAC), composed of SWI/SNF components and DNA replication-related factors, that directly interacts with the vitamin D receptor (VDR) through the Williams syndrome transcription factor (WSTF), was identified with an ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling activity.
Animal models of Williams syndrome.
Toronto, Canada. In Am J Med Genet C Semin Med Genet, 2010
The existing mouse models certainly seem to implicate hemizygosity for ELN, BAZ1B, CLIP2, and GTF2IRD1 in WS, and new mice with large deletions of the WS region are helping us to understand both the additive and potential combinatorial effects of hemizygosity for specific genes.
Chromatin remodelling and transcription: be-WICHed by nuclear myosin 1.
Stockholm, Sweden. In Curr Opin Cell Biol, 2006
Insights into how these structural changes might be coordinated for RNA polymerase I (pol I) genes come from the discoveries of the nucleolar-remodelling complex (NoRC) and B-WICH--a high molecular weight fraction of the WSTF/SNF2h chromatin-remodelling complex.
