Disease relevance of adenosine


High impact information on adenosine

  • Finally, prooxidant states may modulate the expression of a family of prooxidant genes, which are related to cell growth and differentiation, by inducing alterations in DNA structure or by epigenetic mechanisms, for example, by polyadenosine diphosphate-ribosylation of chromosomal proteins [12].
  • We find evidence for specific positioning of the L1 RNA with the ORF2 protein, probably mediated in part by the polyadenosine portion of L1 RNA [13].
  • However, the bicoid mRNA in cortex embryos contains a shorter than normal polyadenosine (poly(A)) tail [14].
  • Stimulation of polyadenosine diphosphoribose synthesis by DNA lesions induced by sodium chromate in Chinese hamster V-79 cells [15].
  • Increased repair replication in human lymphoid cells by inhibition of polyadenosine diphosphoribose synthesis with no increase in patch sizes [16].
