Neuropeptide Y gene polymorphisms confer risk of early-onset atherosclerosis.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-01)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a strong candidate gene for coronary artery disease (CAD). We have previously identified genetic linkage to familial CAD in the genomic region of NPY. We performed follow-up genetic, biostatistical, ...
The secreted metalloprotease ADAMTS20 is required for melanoblast survival.
(PLoS Genet, 2008-02-29)
ADAMTS20 (Adisintegrin-like and metalloprotease domain with thrombospondin type-1 motifs) is a member of a family of secreted metalloproteases that can process a variety of extracellular matrix (ECM) components and secreted ...
A membrane-associated progesterone-binding protein, 25-Dx, is regulated by progesterone in brain regions involved in female reproductive behaviors.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-11-07)
The ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) plays a central role in the regulation of the female reproductive behavior lordosis, a behavior dependent upon the sequential activation of receptors for the ovarian steroid hormones estradiol ...
Gene expression signatures of radiation response are specific, durable and accurate in mice and humans.
(PLoS One, 2008-04-02)
BACKGROUND: Previous work has demonstrated the potential for peripheral blood (PB) gene expression profiling for the detection of disease or environmental exposures. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We have sought to determine the ...
