CPEB (cytoplasmic polyadenylation element-binding protein) is an important regulator of translation in oocytes and neurons. Although previous studies of CPEB in late Xenopus oocytes involve the eIF4E-binding protein maskin as the key factor for the repression of maternal mRNA, a second mechanism must exist, since maskin is absent earlier in oogenesis.

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship of plasma fetuin-A levels with markers of bone turnover in male and female type 2 diabetic subjects. BACKGROUND Fetuin-A, which is a serum protein produced by the liver and promotes bone mineralization, is an independent risk factor for type 2 diabetes, whilst type 2 diabetes is associated with an increased incidence(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes is associated with increased levels of Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) and soluble Tie-2 (sTie-2), but its impact on vascular disease is still unknown. This study aimed to further explore the associations of Ang-2 and sTie-2 with metabolic control and diabetic complications. METHODS In a cross-sectional designed study, levels of Ang-2(More)
Serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase-1 (SGK1) is a glucocorticoid early-response gene; its function, however, has been elucidated mainly in the context of mineralocorticoid signaling. Here, we investigate the expression and function of SGK1 in the pituitary gland, one of the primary glucocorticoid targets. SGK1 is expressed in the human pituitary(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the effective role of adiponectin levels in the predisposition to type 2 diabetes mellitus, the potential impact of adiponectin in manifest type 2 diabetes is less studied. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to determine gender-specific differences regarding the relationship between adiponectin levels and metabolic parameters as well as sex(More)
