    • Anti-diabetic activity of insulin-degrading enzyme inhibitors mediated by multiple hormones 

      Maianti, Juan Pablo; McFedries, Amanda; Foda, Zachariah H.; Kleiner, Ralph; Du, Xiu Quan; Leissring, Malcolm A.; Tang, Wei-Jen; Charron, Maureen J.; Seeliger, Markus A.; Saghatelian, Alan; Liu, David Ruchien (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
      Despite decades of speculation that inhibiting endogenous insulin degradation might treat type-2 diabetes, and the identification of IDE (insulin-degrading enzyme) as a diabetes susceptibility gene, the relationship between ...
    • Characterization of Protein-Metabolite and Protein-Substrate Interactions of Disease Genes 

      McFedries, Amanda Kathryn (2014-06-06)
      Discovery of protein-metabolite and protein-substrate interactions that can specifically regulate genes involved in human biology is an important pursuit, as the study of such interactions can expand our understanding of ...
    • Deletion of Prepl Causes Growth Impairment and Hypotonia in Mice 

      Lone, Anna Mari; Leidl, Mathias; McFedries, Amanda K.; Horner, James W.; Creemers, John; Saghatelian, Alan (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Genetic studies of rare diseases can identify genes of unknown function that strongly impact human physiology. Prolyl endopeptidase-like (PREPL) is an uncharacterized member of the prolyl peptidase family that was discovered ...
