IGF2BP2 is a member of a family of mRNA binding proteins that, collectively, have been shown to bind to several different mRNAs in mammalian cells, including one of the mRNAs encoding insulin-like growth factor-2. Polymorphisms in the Igf2bp2 gene are associated with risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but detailed functional characterisation of IGF2BP2(More)
Dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) and D3 receptor (D3R) possess highly conserved amino acid sequences but this study showed that D3R was more extensively palmitoylated than D2R. Based on this finding, the molecular basis of this selective palmitoylation of D3R was determined and the roles of palmitoylation in the regulation of D3R functions were investigated. D3R(More)
Objectives. The penetration of hydrocortisone (HC) from six topical over-the-counter products along with one prescription cream through cultured normal human-derived epidermal keratinocytes (Epiderm™), mouse skin and synthetic nylon membrane was performed as well as the effect hydrating the skin by pre-washing was explored using the Upright Franz Cell.(More)
