Disease relevance of Capn10


High impact information on Capn10

  • Pretreatment of the cells with calcium inhibitor SK&F96365 inhibited the LXA4-induced apoptosis, levels of [Ca2+]i, expression of calpain 10 and Smac [2].
  • In conclusion, LXA4 at high concentrations induced apoptosis of renal interstitial fibroblasts via [Ca2+]i-dependent upregulation of calpain 10 and Smac expression [2].
  • Comparative mapping between human and rat indicated that the Nidd8/of genomic region, near D9rat21 on rat chromosome 9, contains the calpain10 (Capn10) gene, which is putative type 2 diabetes-susceptibility gene in humans [1].
  • In this study, we found no difference in Capn10 mRNA expression in the heart, liver, skeletal muscle and pancreas between OLETF and F344 rats at 5 and 10 weeks of age [1].
  • This SNP was deduced to substitute serine (OLETF) for glycine (F344 and LETO) at the 195 amino acid residue within the protease domain of rat Capn10 [1].
