Disease relevance of UBIAD1


High impact information on UBIAD1


Biological context of UBIAD1

  • From among several positive clones, we isolated a putative interacting plasmid containing the C-terminal portion of preapolipoprotein E starting from amino acid number 124 from the pBT-TERE1/pTarget-cDNA bacterial two hybrid system [5].

Anatomical context of UBIAD1

  • RESULTS: Ten candidates (0.17%) had a portal vein anomaly with a rightward-deviated ligamentum tere [6].
  • AIM: To detect the anomaly in the persistent right umbilical vein (PRUV) of portal vein (PV) with deviation of the ligamentum tere and left-sided gallbladder [6].

Associations of UBIAD1 with chemical compounds

  • The C-terminal portion of apoE interaction with the TERE1 was confirmed using ProBond columns by the expression of 6XHis recombinant and (35)S methionine/cysteine labeled proteins [5].

Other interactions of UBIAD1


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of UBIAD1

  • The expression of the TERE1 transcript and protein was examined in a series of thirty microdissected prostate tumors by semi-quantitative RT/PCR and immunohistochemistry [1].
