Disease relevance of Salivary Glands


Psychiatry related information on Salivary Glands


High impact information on Salivary Glands

  • Mutations in the gene encoding fibroblast growth factor 10 are associated with aplasia of lacrimal and salivary glands [9].
  • These data suggest a new mechanism to disrupt the function of a Notch co-activator in a common type of malignant salivary gland tumor [1].
  • Our results indicate that PLAG1 activation due to promoter swapping is a crucial event in salivary gland tumourigenesis [10].
  • In the larval salivary gland, loss of EcR-B1 results in loss of activation of ecdysone-induced genes [11].
  • Loss of fzr causes progression through an extra division cycle in the epidermis and inhibition of endoreduplication in the salivary gland, in addition to failure of cyclin removal [12].
