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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
