    Thyroid 22:363-8. 2012
    ..The objective of the present study was to verify whether short telomeres observed in FPTC patients were related to mutations in TERC or shelterin genes...

    Silvia Cantara
    Section of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism and Biochemistry, University of Siena, Siena, Italy
    Thyroid Res 3:4. 2010
    ..We concluded that the A339V mutation in thyroid transcription factor-1 (TITF-1/NKX2.1) is not correlated with the familial form of PTC, even when the tumor was in the context of multinodular goiter...

    Cell Death Differ 13:1088-96. 2006
    ..In conclusion, we demonstrate that FGF-2 protects EC from the effects of excess Abeta1-40, suggesting that it may attenuate the consequences of Abeta deposition in pathologies as CAA...

    S Cantara
    Pharmacology Section, Department of Molecular Biology, University of Siena, Siena, Italy
    J Vasc Res 41:202-7. 2004
    ..The BH4 domain of the Bcl-2 family members is responsible for their antiapoptotic activity. The BH4 domains of Bcl-2 and Bcl-xl inhibit cytochrome c release and the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential...
