Primate theta-defensins are physically distinguished as the only known fully-cyclic peptides of animal origin. Humans do not produce theta-defensin peptides due to a premature stop codon present in the signal sequence of all six theta-defensin pseudogenes. Instead, since the putative coding regions of human theta-defensin pseudogenes have remained(More)
Through a positional cloning approach, the thioredoxin-interacting protein gene (Txnip) was recently identified as causal for a form of combined hyperlipidemia in mice (Bodnar, J. S., A. Chatterjee, L. W. Castellani, D. A. Ross, J. Ohmen, J. Cavalcoli, C. Wu, K. M. Dains, J. Catanese, M. Chu, S. S. Sheth, K. Charugundla, P. Demant, D. B. West, P. de Jong,(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a devastating condition that is most often characterized by a poor prognosis. Microarray technologies are promising screening methods for the identification of potential markers for early diagnosis and chemotherapeutic intervention. In this article, we review the current state of pancreatic cancer research as it relates to the(More)
