Neuroprotection following ischaemic stroke is driven by the interplay between regulatory transcription factors and endogenous protective factors. IRF4, a member of the interferon regulatory factor (IRF) family, is implicated in the survival of tumour cells. However, its role in the survival of normal cells including neurons remains elusive. Using genetic(More)
Tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor 1 (TRAF1), an adapter in signal transduction, is involved in immunity and in apoptotic processes in various cell types. However, little is known about its function and the molecular mechanism of its activation during liver injury. This study tested the hypothesis that TRAF1 is a mediator of cell injury after(More)
Osteoporosis is a major health problem, mainly characterized by low bone mineral density (BMD). Osteocalcin (also known as BGP, for bone Gla protein) is a significant biomarker of bone turnover and thus the BGP gene has been considered as an important candidate gene for osteoporosis. A few studies on the relationship between variants of the BGP gene and BMD(More)
