Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a common, progressive, adult-onset disease that is an important cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which requires transplantation or dialysis. Mutations in PKD1 or PKD2 (∼85% and ∼15% of resolved cases, respectively) are the known causes of ADPKD. Extrarenal manifestations include an increased level of intracranial aneurysms and polycystic liver disease (PLD), which can be severe and associated with significant morbidity. Autosomal-dominant PLD (ADPLD) with no or very few renal cysts is a separate disorder caused by PRKCSH, SEC63, or LRP5 mutations...

N-glycosylation of proteins is one of the most important post-translational modifications that occur in various organisms, and is of utmost importance for protein function, stability, secretion, and loca-lization. Although the N-linked glycosylation pathway of proteins has been extensively characterized in mammals and plants, not much information is available regarding the N-glycosylation pathway in algae. We studied the α 1,3-glucosidase glucosidase II (GANAB) glycoenzyme in a red marine microalga Porphyridium sp...

Homeostatic levels of nitric oxide (NO) protect efficiently against apoptotic death in both human and rodent pancreatic β cells, but the protein profile of this action remains to be determined. We have applied a 2 dimensional LC-MS-MALDI-TOF/TOF-based analysis to study the impact of protective NO in rat insulin-producing RINm5F cell line and in mouse and human pancreatic islets (HPI) exposed to serum deprivation condition. 24 proteins in RINm5F and 22 in HPI were identified to undergo changes in at least one experimental condition...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to establish a common set of molecules that regulate cell invasion in head and neck cancer (HNC). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Five invasive sublines derived from HNC cell lines were established using the Matrigel selection method. Proteomic technology, MetaCore algorithm, and reverse transcriptase-PCR methods were used to search for molecules that contribute to the invasion phenotype. Cellular functional analyses and clinical association studies were applied to examine the significance of the molecules...

Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2), the potent bone anabolic agent, regulates the bone development, as well as the growth, remodeling and healing of the fracture. The intracellular signaling of FGF2 leads to activation of genes involved in cell proliferation, migration, differentiation and survival. However, little is known about FGF2-regulated proteins in the osteoblasts. Therefore, in this study, protein profiling in FGF2-treated MC3T3-E1 preosteoblast cells was evaluated using proteomic technologies. Six proteins including asparaginyl-tRNA synthetase (NARS), eukaryotic translation termination factor 1 (ETF1), GDP-forming succinyl-CoA synthetase (SUCLG2), heat shock protein 84 (HSP 84), sorting nexin 9 (SNX9) and alpha glucosidase 2alpha neutral subunit (GANAB) were increased more than 3-fold after the FGF2 treatment...

This cross-sectional study investigated with two-dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled to MALDI-TOF and MRI the relationship between PBMCs protein expression profile and whole-brain atrophy in 16 unselected RR-MS IFN-treated patients compared with 6 RR IFN-untreated and 12 matched healthy control subjects. Grey/white matter fraction, T1/T2 lesion load and clinical variables were considered too. Twenty six proteins showed significant differential expression among RR IFN-treated patients and control samples...

A panel of 42 rodent x cat somatic cell hybrids has been used to assign seven structural genes for lysosomal enzymes to specific chromosomes in the domestic cat. The assignments include alpha-glucosidase (GANAB) to chromosome D1, alpha-galactosidase (GLA) to the X chromosome, beta-galactosidase 1 (GLB1) to chromosome B3, beta-glucuronidase (GUSB) to chromosome E3, alpha-mannosidase A (MANA) to chromosome B3, alpha-L-fucosidase (FUCA) to chromosome C1, and hexosaminidase A (HEXA) to chromosome B3. In all cases, the feline lysosomal enzyme genes were located in linkage groups which were syntenic with their homologous positions in the human gene map...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
