Clinically important alterations in pharmacogene expression in histologically severe nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Nicholas R Powell et 11 al.

Mar 17, 2023 in Nature communications
Polypharmacy is common in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and previous reports suggest that NAFLD is associated with altered drug disposition. This study aims to determine if patients with NAFLD are at risk for altered drug response by characterizing changes in hepatic mRNA expression of genes mediating drug disposition (pharmacogenes) across the histological NAFLD severity ...

Biomarker Changes Associated With Both Dulaglutide and Cardiovascular Events in the REWIND Randomized Controlled Trial: A Nested Case-Control Post Hoc Analysis.

Hertzel C Gerstein et 14 al.

Mar 10, 2023 in Diabetes care
The glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist dulaglutide reduced MACE in the Researching Cardiovascular Events with a Weekly Incretin in Diabetes (REWIND) trial. This paper expores the relationship of selected biomarkers to both dulaglutide and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). In this post hoc analysis, stored fasting baseline and 2-year plasma samples from 824 REWIND participants with ...

The concordance between RNA-seq and microarray data depends on chemical treatment and transcript abundance.

Charles Wang, Weida Tong et 45 al.

Aug 24, 2014 in Nature biotechnology
The concordance of RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) with microarrays for genome-wide analysis of differential gene expression has not been rigorously assessed using a range of chemical treatment conditions. Here we use a comprehensive study design to generate Illumina RNA-seq and Affymetrix microarray data from the same liver samples of rats exposed in triplicate to varying degrees of perturbation by 27 c...


Aurora-A kinase inhibition is synthetic lethal with loss of the RB1 tumor suppressor gene.

Xueqian Gong, Sean Buchanan et 40 al.

Jan 1, 2019 in Cancer Discovery
Loss-of-function mutations in the retinoblastoma gene RB1 are common in several treatment-refractory cancers such as small-cell lung cancer and triple-negative breast cancer. To identify drugs synthetic lethal with RB1 mutation (RB1mut), we tested 36 cell-cycle inhibitors using a cancer cell panel profiling approach optimized to discern cytotoxic from cytostatic effects. Inhibitors of the Aurora k...


Molecular genetic studies of acetyl-CoA carboxylase and 3-methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase in plants

Hui-Rong Qian

Jan 1, 2002
Two structurally-distinct acetyl-CoA carboxylases are present in Arabidopsis. Plastidic ACCase catalyzes the first committed step of de novo fatty acid biosynthesis. Transgenic Arabidopsis plants have been obtained with an antisense cDNA of CACI-A. which encodes the biotin carboxyl carrier subunit protein (BCCP) of plastidic ACCase. under the direction of CaMV 35S promoter. Forty-two independent t...


949-P: Dulaglutide Improves Kidney Fibrosis Biomarker Levels in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes and Moderate-to-Severe Chronic Kidney Disease

Katherine R. Tuttle et 9 al.

Jan 1, 2020 in Diabetes
The AWARD-7 clinical trial demonstrated that once-weekly dulaglutide slowed the decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and decreased urine albumin/creatinine ratio compared to insulin glargine in patients with type 2 diabetes and moderate-to-severe chronic kidney disease (CKD). Lower levels of urinary C3M, a marker for type III collagen degradation, and increased level of plasma PR...

SUM: a new way to incorporate mismatch probe measurements

Investigating the neuroimmunogenic architecture of schizophrenia

R Birnbaum et 47 al.

May 9, 2017 in Molecular Psychiatry
The role of the immune system in schizophrenia remains controversial despite numerous studies to date. Most studies have profiled expression of select genes or proteins in peripheral blood, but none have focused on the expression of canonical pathways that mediate overall immune response. The current study used a systematic genetic approach to investigate the role of the immune system in a large s...

Assessing the Variability in GeneChip?? Data

Shuguang Huang, Kerry Bemis et 5 al.

Jan 1, 2003 in American Journal of PharmacoGenomics
Introduction : Oligonucleotide and cDNA microarray experiments are now common practice in biological science research. The goal of these experiments is generally to gain clues about the functions of genes by measuring how their expression levels rise and fall in response to changing experimental conditions. Measures of gene expression are affected, however, by a variety of factors. This paper intr...
