  1. Kakizaki I, Tatara Y, Majima M, Kato Y, Endo M. Identification of proteoglycan from salmon nasal cartilage. Arch Biochem Biophys. 2011;506:58-65 pubmed publisher
    ..Based on cDNA analysis and amino acid analysis after ?-elimination, the ratio of serine attached to sugar chains was calculated to be approximately 37.7% of total serine, that is, 46 of 123 serine residues. ..

    ..Exon-intron boundaries are the same as that of the consensus sequence. Locations of introns in the coding sequence are similar to human CRF-R1, rat CRF-R1, human CRF-R2alpha and others belonging to the human glucagon receptor family. ..
  3. Ohguro H, Nakazawa M. Pathological roles of recoverin in cancer-associated retinopathy. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2002;514:109-24 pubmed
    ..Lastly, the antibody blocks recoverin function (inhibition of rhodopsin phosphorylation in a calcium dependent manner), and enhancement of rhodopsin phosphorylation induces retinal apoptosis. ..
  4. Kanai K, Hirose S, Oguni H, Fukuma G, Shirasaka Y, Miyajima T, et al. Effect of localization of missense mutations in SCN1A on epilepsy phenotype severity. Neurology. 2004;63:329-34 pubmed
    ..More severe sodium channel dysfunctions including abnormal ion selectivity that are caused by mutations in the pore regions may be involved in the pathogenesis of SMEI. ..
  5. Tomita H, Sasaki S, Osanai T, Nakano T, Higuma T, Yokoyama J, et al. Mutational analysis of Kir6.1 in Japanese patients with coronary spastic angina. Int J Mol Med. 2006;18:589-91 pubmed
    ..No mutation that alters primary structure of Kir6.1 was detected in Japanese patients with CSA. The results indicate that abnormality in the primary structure of Kir6.1 may not be involved in the genetic pathogenesis of CSA in humans. ..
  6. Wang A, Tan D, Takahashi A, Li T, Harada T. MdERFs, two ethylene-response factors involved in apple fruit ripening. J Exp Bot. 2007;58:3743-8 pubmed
    ..On the basis of concomitant analyses of the expression of some genes related to ripening, the functions of MdERFs and the role of ethylene in the ripening process are discussed. ..
  7. Nanashima N, Akita M, Yamada T, Shimizu T, Nakano H, Fan Y, et al. The hairless phenotype of the Hirosaki hairless rat is due to the deletion of an 80-kb genomic DNA containing five basic keratin genes. J Biol Chem. 2008;283:16868-75 pubmed publisher
    ..Kb25 was expressed in the cortex in HHRs, whereas it was in the medulla in SDRs. This study clearly illustrates the importance of hair keratin genes in hair growth. ..

  9. Ozaki T, Yamashita T, Ishiguro S. Ca²+-induced release of mitochondrial m-calpain from outer membrane with binding of calpain small subunit and Grp75. Arch Biochem Biophys. 2011;507:254-61 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results showed that the activating mechanism of mitochondrial OM-bound m-calpain and the release of mitochondrial m-calpain from the OM have important implications in facilitating apoptotic cell death. ..
