DNA repair is critical for proper embryogenesis, and altered expression of DNA repair genes has been associated with neural tube defects (NTDs). The expression of DNA repair enzymes may be controlled, in part, by methylation of the promoter region. To assess whether disturbed promoter methylation pattern increases the incidence of NTDs, we employed(More)
BACKGROUND Activated protein C (APC) inhibits factor Va (FVa) by cleaving at Arg306, Arg506 and Arg679. Protein S serves as cofactor, in particular for the Arg306 site, and a protein S-mediated relocation of the active site of APC closer to the membrane has been proposed as a mechanism. Recently, it was demonstrated that FVa, which was mutated at all three(More)
