The HTR2C gene encodes the 5-Hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 2C, G-protein-coupled protein which functions as a serotonin receptor. The HTR2C mRNA is subject to A-to-I RNA editing mediated by adenosine deaminases acting on RNA 1 and 2 (ADAR1 and ADAR2). In the current study we examined the molecular characteristics of the porcine HTR2C gene and(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD), idiopathic and familial, is characterized by degradation of dopaminergic neurons and the presence of Lewy bodies (LB) in the substantia nigra. LBs contain aggregated proteins of which α-synuclein is the major component. The protein synphilin-1 interacts and colocalizes with α-synuclein in LBs. The aim of this study was to isolate(More)
Deleted in bladder cancer 1 (DBC1) is a tumour suppressor which is involved in the regulation of cell growth and programmed cell death. In this study we report the cloning and characterization of porcine DBC1 cDNA. RT-PCR cloning produced a cDNA with an open reading frame of 2,283 bp encoding a polypeptide of 761 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass(More)
The membrane protein SLITRK1 functions as a developmentally regulated stimulator of neurite outgrowth and variants in this gene have been implicated in Tourette syndrome. In the current study we have cloned and characterized the porcine SLITRK1 gene. The genomic organization of SLITRK1 lacks introns, as does its human and mouse counterparts. RT-PCR cloning(More)
