Auricular Cartilage Repair Using Cryogel Scaffolds Loaded With Bmp-7-Expressing Primary Chondrocytes
The loss of cartilage tissue due to trauma, tumour surgery or congenital defects, such as microtia and anotia, is one of the major concerns in head and neck surgery. Recently tissue-engineering approaches, including gene ...
Cpg Methylation In The Fhit Regulatory Region: Relation To Fhit Expression In Murine Tumors
(Nature Publishing Group, 2004)
To determine if: (1) 5' CpG island methylation is related to Fhit inactivation; (2) there are tumor or carcinogen-specific methylation patterns, we examined 35 CpG sites in the promoter, exon and intron 1 of the mouse Fhit ...
Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms On The Ryd5 Gene In Nasal Polyposis
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc, 2015)
Nasal polyposis (NP) is a chronic inflammatory disease. Several genes play major roles in the pathophysiology of the disease. We analyzed RYD5 gene polymorphisms to determine the effect of these variants or their genetic ...
Targeting Novel Antigens in the Arterial Wall in Thromboangiitis Obliterans
(Via Medica, 2010)
Thromboangiitis obliterans is an inflammatory disease possibly resulting from cigarette smoking as a primary etiologic factor, perhaps as a delayed type of hypersensitivity or toxic angiitis. As little is known about the ...
Targeting Critical Steps of Cancer Metastasis and Recurrence Using Telomerase Template Antagonists
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2009)
Metastasis, tumor relapse, and drug resistance remain major obstacles in the treatment of cancer. Therefore, more research on the mechanisms of these processes in disease is warranted for improved treatment options. Recent ...
Human Tubb3 Mutations Perturb Microtubule Dynamics, Kinesin Interactions, And Axon Guidance
(Cell Press, 2010)
We report that eight heterozygous missense mutations in TUBB3, encoding the neuron-specific beta-tubulin isotype III, result in a spectrum of human nervous system disorders that we now call the TUBB3 syndromes. Each mutation ...
The Cell as a Membranous Network Under Microscope
(Univ Tokyo Cytologia, 1980)
Artemis, A Novel Dna Double-Strand Break Repair/V(D)J Recombination Protein, Is Mutated In Human Severe Combined Immune Deficiency
(Cell Press, 2001)
The V(D)J recombination process insures the somatic diversification of immunoglobulin and antigen T cell receptor encoding genes. This reaction is initiated by a DNA double-strand break (dsb), which is resolved by the ...
Impaired Amino Acid Transport At The Blood Brain Barrier Is A Cause Of Autism Spectrum Disorder
(Cell Press, 2016)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of genetic disorders often overlapping with other neurological conditions. We previously described abnormalities in the branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) catabolic pathway as a ...
Activation-Induced Cytidine Deaminase (AID) Deficiency Causes The Autosomal Recessive Form Of The Hyper-Igm Syndrome (HIGM2)
(Cell Press, 2000)
The activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) gene, specifically expressed in germinal center B cells in mice, is a member of the cytidine deaminase family. We herein report mutations in the human counterpart of AID in ...
