LDL Receptor-Related Protein 5 (LRP5) Affects Bone Accrual and Eye Development
In humans, low peak bone mass is a significant risk factor for osteoporosis. We report that LRP5, encoding the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 5, affects bone mass accrual duringExpand

The secreted glycoprotein lubricin protects cartilage surfaces and inhibits synovial cell overgrowth.
The long-term integrity of an articulating joint is dependent upon the nourishment of its cartilage component and the protection of the cartilage surface from friction-induced wear. Loss-of-functionExpand

Six novel missense mutations in the LDL receptor-related protein 5 (LRP5) gene in different conditions with an increased bone density.
Bone is a dynamic tissue that is subject to the balanced processes of bone formation and bone resorption. Imbalance can give rise to skeletal pathologies with increased bone density. In recent years,Expand

Heterozygous mutations in the gene encoding noggin affect human joint morphogenesis
The secreted polypeptide noggin (encoded by the Nog gene) binds and inactivates members of the transforming growth factor β superfamily of signalling proteins (TGFβ-FMs), such as BMP4 (ref. 1). ByExpand

CRL4B catalyzes H2AK119 monoubiquitination and coordinates with PRC2 to promote tumorigenesis.
We reported that Cullin4B-Ring E3 ligase complex (CRL4B) is physically associated with Polycomb-repressive complex 2 (PRC2). We showed that CRL4B possesses an intrinsic transcription repressiveExpand

MiR‐182 overexpression in tumourigenesis of high‐grade serous ovarian carcinoma
Molecular pathogenesis of high‐grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HG‐SOC) is poorly understood. Recent recognition of HG‐SOC precursor lesions, defined as serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma (STIC)Expand

EDA Gene Mutations Underlie Non-syndromic Oligodontia
Recent studies have detected mutations in the EDA gene, previously identified as causing X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED), in two families with X-linked non-syndromic hypodontia.Expand
