NEDD4-like ubiquitin ligase 2 protein (NEDL2) in porcine spermatozoa, oocytes, and preimplantation embryos and its role in oocyte fertilization†

NEDD4-like ubiquitin ligase 2 protein (NEDL2) in porcine spermatozoa, oocytes, and preimplantation embryos and its role in oocyte fertilization†

The ubiquitin-proteasome system performs various regulatory and homeostatic roles in mammalian copy. Ubiquitin ligases are the substrate-specific mediators of ubiquitin-binding to its substrate proteins. The NEDD4-like ubiquitin ligase 2 (aliases NEDL2, HECW2) is a HECT-type ubiquitin ligase that incorporates one N-terminal HECW ubiquitin ligase area, one C-terminal HECT ubiquitin ligase area, one C2 area, and two…

Polymorphisms in HTLV-1 Tax-responsive elements in HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis patients are associated with reduced proviral load but not with disease progression

Polymorphisms in HTLV-1 Tax-responsive elements in HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis patients are associated with reduced proviral load but not with disease progression

Human T-lymphotropic virus kind 1 (HTLV-1) provirus expression is especially directed by Tax-responsive components (TRE) inside the lengthy terminal repeats (LTR). Mutations in TRE can cut back provirus expression and since a excessive proviral load (PVL) is a danger issue for the event of HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP), we evaluated polymorphisms within the 5′…
