Disease relevance of RPL13A

  • The expressions of glyseraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), beta-actin, cyclophilin, and RPL13A were examined in order to validate the appropriate housekeeping genes for a long duration after inducing cerebral ischemia [1].

High impact information on RPL13A

  • The proinflammatory cytokine interferon-gamma induces phosphorylation of ribosomal protein L13a and translocation from the 60S ribosomal subunit to the interferon-gamma-activated inhibitor of translation (GAIT) complex [2].
  • ACTB, RPL13A, and HMBS showed significant differences (P<0.02 at least) in expressions between malignant and nonmalignant pairs [3].
  • Gene organization and sequence of the region containing the ribosomal protein genes RPL13A and RPS11 in the human genome and conserved features in the mouse genome [4].
  • To determine a reliable stain for analysing RNA, using the housekeeping gene, RPL13A, we performed quantitative gene expression analysis of laser microdissected cells from prostatic frozen tissues [5].
  • The expression of RPL13A and SDHA appeared to be highly unstable [6].
