      IgG4-related disease is a newly recognized fibro-inflammatory condition characterized by several features: a tendency to form tumefactive lesions in multiple sites; a characteristic histopathological appearance; and—often ...
    • Decreased Soluble Guanylate Cyclase Contributes to Cardiac Dysfunction Induced by Chronic Doxorubicin Treatment in Mice 

      Vandenwijngaert, Sara; Swinnen, Melissa; Walravens, Ann-Sophie; Beerens, Manu Eddy Maria; Gillijns, Hilde; Caluwé, Ellen; Tainsh, Robert; Nathan, Daniel I.; Allen, Kaitlin; Brouckaert, Peter; Bartunek, Jozef; Scherrer-Crosbie, Marielle; Bloch, Kenneth; Bloch, Donald Bendit; Janssens, Stefan P.; Buys, Emmanuel (Mary Ann Liebert Inc, 2017)
      Aims: The use of doxorubicin, a potent chemotherapeutic agent, is limited by cardiotoxicity. We tested the hypothesis that decreased soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) enzyme activity contributes to the development of ...
    • Deletion of the Sequence Encoding the Tail Domain of the Bone Morphogenetic Protein type 2 Receptor Reveals a Bone Morphogenetic Protein 7-Specific Gain of Function 

      Leyton, Patricio A.; Beppu, Hideyuki; Pappas, Alexandra; Martyn, Trejeeve M.; Derwall, Matthias; Baron, David M.; Galdos, Rita; Bloch, Donald B.; Bloch, Kenneth D. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      The bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) type II receptor (BMPR2) has a long cytoplasmic tail domain whose function is incompletely elucidated. Mutations in the tail domain of BMPR2 are found in familial cases of pulmonary ...
    • IgG4-Related Disease Is Not Associated with Antibody to the Phospholipase A2 Receptor 

      Khosroshahi, Arezou; Ayalon, Rivka; Beck, Laurence H.; Salant, David J.; Bloch, Donald Bendit; Stone, John H. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)
      Patients with IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) share histopathological characteristics that are similar across affected organs. The finding of infiltration with IgG4+ plasma cells in the proper clinical and histopathological ...
    • Inhibition of Bone Morphogenetic Protein Signal Transduction Prevents the Medial Vascular Calcification Associated with Matrix Gla Protein Deficiency 

      Malhotra, Rajeev; Burke, Megan F.; Martyn, Trejeeve; Shakartzi, Hannah R.; Thayer, Timothy E.; O’Rourke, Caitlin; Li, Pingcheng; Derwall, Matthias; Spagnolli, Ester; Kolodziej, Starsha A.; Hoeft, Konrad; Mayeur, Claire; Jiramongkolchai, Pawina; Kumar, Ravindra; Buys, Emmanuel S.; Yu, Paul B.; Bloch, Kenneth D.; Bloch, Donald B. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      Objective: Matrix Gla protein (MGP) is reported to inhibit bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signal transduction. MGP deficiency is associated with medial calcification of the arterial wall, in a process that involves both ...
    • LMKB/MARF1 Localizes to mRNA Processing Bodies, Interacts with Ge-1, and Regulates IFI44L Gene Expression

      The mRNA processing body (P-body) is a cellular structure that regulates the stability of cytoplasmic mRNA. MARF1 is a murine oocyte RNA-binding protein that is associated with maintenance of mRNA homeostasis and genomic ...
    • Novel MicroRNA Regulators of Atrial Natriuretic Peptide Production 

      Wu, Connie; Arora, Pankaj; Agha, Obiajulu; Hurst, Liam A.; Allen, Kaitlin; Nathan, Daniel I.; Hu, Dongjian; Jiramongkolchai, Pawina; Smith, J.
