Disease relevance of Btg1

  • Differential display RT-PCR analysis allowed us to identify the genes that are responsive to oxidative stress during PCM and to characterize the differential role of cysteine on the expression of the fibrinogen B beta chain, BTG1 and THRP genes as a homeostatic adaptive response during protein deficiency [1].

Associations of Btg1 with chemical compounds

  • Cysteine was also active in reversing the increase in BTG1 mRNA during PCM [1].
  • BTG1 and 2 have been shown to interact with PRMT1 (predominant cellular arginine N-methyltransferase of type I) [4].
