In the previous proteomic study of human placenta, transmembrane 7 superfamily member 1 (TM7SF1) was found enriched in lysosome compartments. TM7SF1 encodes a 399-amino acid protein with a calculated molecular mass of 45 kDa. Bioinformatic analysis of its amino acid sequence showed that it is a multipass transmembrane protein containing a potential(More)
Human Nanog1 is a 305-amino acid (aa) homeodomain-containing transcription factor critical for the pluripotency of embryonic stem (ES) and embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells. Somatic cancer cells predominantly express a retrogene homolog of Nanog1 called NanogP8, which is ~99% similar to Nanog at the aa level. Although the predicted M.W of Nanog1/NanogP8 is ∼35(More)
Respiratory activity is under circadian modulation and the physiological mechanisms may involve the pineal secretory product, melatonin, and the carotid chemoreceptor. We hypothesized that melatonin modulates the carotid chemoreceptor response to hypercapnic acidosis. To determine whether the effect of melatonin on the chemoreceptor response to hypercapnic(More)
