By Brad A. (Ed.) Amendt, Brad A. Amendt

The Molecular Mechanisms of Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome describes the present examine and medical findings of the heterogeneous ailment termed Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome (ARS). The booklet presents an in-depth research of this phenotypic various disease and is designed to element the present molecular and biochemical examine fascinated about learning genetic defects. This publication brings jointly the full research of a human genetic disorder utilizing people, mouse and chick epigenetic and genetic reports, mixed with mobile tradition and in vitro analyses. it's a entire research of a distinct set of genes and their mutant actions. A molecular foundation for the genetic and phenotypic anomalies saw in ARS sufferers is equipped, with specifically special descriptions of eye, enamel, and middle improvement.

PKC selectively phosphorylates serine and threonine residues in specific amino acid sequences. There also appears to be several casein kinase II (CKII) sites (S/T XX EX) located within the PITX2 protein. We have observed specific phosphorylation of PITX2 with PKC and no phosphorylation by CKII or protein kinase A (PKA), other known serine/threonine kinases. PKC site specific mutagenesis has demonstrated that all 10 PKC sites within PITX2 are phosphorylated by PKC. Phosphorylation of the C-terminal tail increases PITX2 transcriptional activty while phosphorylation of the N terminus is inhibitory for transcriptional activity.
