G protein-coupled receptor-associated sorting protein 2 (GPRASP2), a member of the GASP family, has been reported to be involved in the modulation of transcription. However, few studies have revealed the role of GPRASP2 in the development and progression of diseases. As a model organism, zebrafish have been widely used to investigate human diseases. In the present study, zebrafish armadillo repeat-containing 10 (armc10), an orthologous gene of human GPRASP2 was identified, and the spatial and… 


Expression of cyp26b1 during zebrafish early development.
Zebrafish ortholog of the mammalian cyp26b1 gene is cloned and cDNA transfection assays showed that like human cyp 26b1, zebrafish cyp25b1 is involved in limiting the activity of retinoic acid.
The Armc10/SVH gene: genome context, regulation of mitochondrial dynamics and protection against Aβ-induced mitochondrial fragmentation
The data suggest both conserved and differential roles of the Armc10/Armcx gene family in regulating mitochondrial dynamics in neurons, and underscore a protective effect of theArmc10 gene against Aβ-induced toxicity.
A specific splicing variant of SVH, a novel human armadillo repeat protein, is up-regulated in hepatocellular carcinomas.
It is suggested that the splicing variants of SVH have distinct biological functions, and SVH-B may play an important role in hepatocarcinogenesis.
The Eutherian Armcx genes regulate mitochondrial trafficking in neurons and interact with Miro and Trak2.
It is demonstrated that Armcx3 expression levels regulate mitochondrial dynamics and trafficking in neurons, and that Alex3 interacts with the Kinesin/Miro/Trak2 complex in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner.
Molecular cloning and expression of a novel CYP26 gene (cyp26d1) during zebrafish early development.
Zebrafish cyp26d1 expression domain is extended to eyes, otic vesicles and midbrain in addition to its expression in hindbrain, telencephalon, diencephalons, and pharyngeal arches and the expression level is greatly reduced.
Huntingtin interacts with the receptor sorting family protein GASP2
The verification of the interaction between htt and GASP2 (G protein-coupled receptor associated sorting protein 2), a protein involved in membrane receptor degradation, is described, suggesting that htt might influence receptor trafficking via the interaction with GASp2.
GPRASP2, a novel causative gene mutated in an X-linked recessive syndromic hearing loss
This study presented a novel X-linked SHL combined with unique and unrecognised clinical features, and a missense variation of GPRASP2 was first identified to be implicated in X- linked SHL.
Identification and biological significance of G protein-coupled receptor associated sorting proteins (GASPs).
This review describes the discovery of GASPs, their major features, interacting partners, functions and possible involvement in pathological situations including neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
Identification and characterization of a second fibronectin gene in zebrafish.
The presence of a second zebrafish FN gene (fn1b) that encodes a protein with a predicted primary structure that is similar to FNs identified in other vertebrates possessing 12 type I, 2 type II and 17 type III repeats including two alternative splice sites (EIIIA and EIIIB and a variable region (V).
A homolog of the armadillo protein in Drosophila (plakoglobin) associated with E-cadherin.
The complementary DNA sequence was determined for the 92-kilodalton beta catenin of Xenopus laevis, a protein of desmosomal and zonula adherens cell junctions, and to the plakoglobin homolog in Drosophila melanogaster, the product of the segment polarity gene armadillo.
