OBJECTIVES Whole-blood RNA for microarray analysis is easily accessible but contains a large proportion of globin mRNA that interferes with the accurate assessment of other genes. This study investigated the biological significance of genes whose expression was unmasked by globin mRNA reduction in peripheral blood. DESIGN AND METHODS Samples were(More)
Despite the wealth of sequence data and new technologies that can scan large portions of the transcriptome or proteome in a single experiment, attempts to identify human biomarkers of toxicity have been met with limited success. We have adapted an in vitro model system to identify proteins secreted by a human hepatoma-derived cell line (HepG2/C3A) in(More)
The basic helix-loop-helix (HLH) E2A transcription factors bind to DNA as homodimers or as heterodimers formed with other basic HLH factors, activate gene expression, and promote differentiation of muscle, lymphoid, neuronal, and other cell types. These E2A functions can be inhibited by the Id proteins, HLH factors that sequester E2A in non-DNA binding(More)
Clinical studies indicate that partial agonists of the G-protein-coupled, free fatty acid receptor 1 GPR40 enhance glucose-dependent insulin secretion and represent a potential mechanism for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Full allosteric agonists (AgoPAMs) of GPR40 bind to a site distinct from partial agonists and can provide additional(More)
