Impact of the controlled release of a connexin 43 peptide on corneal wound closure in an STZ model of type I diabetes.
The alpha-carboxy terminus 1 (αCT1) peptide is a synthetically produced mimetic modified from the DDLEI C-terminus sequence of connexin 43 (Cx43). Previous research using various wound healing models have found promising ...
RNA sequencing and proteomics approaches reveal novel deficits in the cortex ofMecp2-deficient mice, a model for Rett syndrome.
BACKGROUND: Rett syndrome (RTT) is an X-linked neurodevelopmental disorder caused by mutations in the transcriptional regulator MeCP2. Much of our understanding of MeCP2 function is derived from transcriptomic studies with ...
Connexin 43 expression is associated with increased malignancy in prostate cancer cell lines and functions to promote migration.
Impaired expression of connexins, the gap junction subunits that facilitate direct cell-cell communication, have been implicated in prostate cancer growth. To elucidate the crucial role of connexins in prostate cancer ...
Diabetes Increases Cryoinjury Size with Associated Effects on Cx43 Gap Junction Function and Phosphorylation in the Mouse Heart.
Diabetic patients develop larger myocardial infarctions and have an increased risk of death following a heart attack. The poor response to myocardial injury in the diabetic heart is likely related to the many metabolic ...
Molecular structure and dimeric organization of the Notch extracellular domain as revealed by electron microscopy.
BACKGROUND: The Notch receptor links cell fate decisions of one cell to that of the immediate cellular neighbor. In humans, malfunction of Notch signaling results in diseases and congenital disorders. Structural information ...
