The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) plays a crucial role in protein folding, assembly, and secretion. Disruption of ER homeostasis may lead to accumulation of misfolded or unfolded proteins in the ER lumen, a condition referred to as ER stress. In response to ER stress, a signal transduction pathway known as the unfolded protein response (UPR) is activated. UPR(More)
Regulation of energy metabolism is critical for the prevention of obesity, diabetes, and hepatic steatosis. Here, we report an important role for the pleckstrin homology-related domain family member, T-cell death-associated gene 51 (TDAG51), in the regulation of energy metabolism. TDAG51 expression was examined during adipocyte differentiation. Adipogenic(More)
Gastric variceal bleeding is a major complication of portal hypertension and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. While esophageal varices are more common, gastric varices are often more challenging to treat. Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration is an interventional procedure whereby the portosystemic gastrorenal shunt is(More)
