Used to study autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and dilated cardiomyopa y. Human or olog(s) of is gene implicated in distal muscular dystrophy 4. hypertrophic cardiomyopa y 26. and myofibrillar myopa y 5. Or ologous to human FLNC (filamin C). Genome Resources. Multiple distinct zebrafish transcripts were identified for each of four genes: Filamin C, emerin, dystrophin, and titin. For emerin, e two identified transcripts differ only by a single 7 ba air internal fragment, suggesting differential splicing, or mis-prediction of one of e transcripts. Myofibrillar myopa y is part of a group of disorders called muscular dystrophies at affect muscle function and cause weakness. Myofibrillar myopa y pri ily affects skeletal muscles, which are muscles at e body uses for movement. In some cases, e heart (cardiac) muscle is also affected. e signs and symptoms of myofibrillar myopa y vary widely among affected individuals, typically. 15, · Background. Pa ogenic variants in e filamin C (FLNC) gene are associated wi inherited cardiomyopa ies including dilated cardiomyopa y wi an arrhy mogenic phenotype.We evaluated FLNC variants in arrhy mogenic cardiomyopa y (ACM) and investigated e disease mechanism at a molecular level. Filamin C (FLNc) and Xin actin-binding repeat-containing proteins (XIRPs) are multi-adaptor proteins at are mainly expressed in cardiac and skeletal muscles and which play important roles in e assembly and repair of myofibrils and eir attachment to e membrane. We identified e dystrophin-binding protein aciculin (also known as phosphoglucomutase-like protein 5, PGM5) as a new. 01, · Filamin C is an actin-crosslinking protein at is specifically expressed in cardiac and skeletal muscles. Al ough mutations in e filamin C gene cause human myopa y wi cardiac involvement, e function of filamin C in vivo is not yet fully understood.

Metastasis is complex, involving multiple genetic, epigenetic, biochemical, and physical changes in e cancer cell and its microenvironment. Cells wi metastatic potential are often characterized by altered cellular contractility and deformability, lending em e flexibility to disseminate and navigate rough different microenvironments.

Feel free to add new protocols to e appropriate section or add comments to any existing protocol. FLNC encodes Filamin C—1 of e 3 filamin family members found in humans. Al ough similar to previously identified RCM candidate proteins as a component of e sarcomeric architecture, e function of FLNC is distinct because it acts as a scaffolding and signaling protein instead of directly governing contractile force of e myocyte.

Regression slopes were also low (0.0090.026), but different from zero, for C zebrafish. Standard metabolic rates were 0.601.54 and 0.400.85 ml O2 g-1 h-1 for WT and C zebrafish respectively. Variances of slopes were significantly larger for WT an for C fish. We previously reported a CXCR4 C-tail interaction wi filamin A (FLNA). 22 FLNA is a dimeric protein, each subunit of which has an N-terminal spectrin-related actin-binding domain and 24 immunoglobulin-like β-sheet tandem repeats arated into 2 rods by 2 hinge regions. 23 Repeat 24 mediates protein dimerization and endows e dimer wi.

Family members share high sequence similarity (64) and have bo common and isoform. Some mutations in filamin C cause e cell to make only a shorter version of e protein, which likely does not function well. e project will test a drug at tricks e cell into ignoring e mutation at would have truncated (shortened) e protein, If only a little bit of full-leng functional filamin C got made, e muscle defects. During e past 20 years, zebrafish have become models for studying development and disease. As is e case wi humans, zebrafish are vertebrates. Most of e genes required for normal embryonic development in zebrafish are also present in humans. If ey are not properly regulated, e same genes often cause tumor formation and metastatic. 24, · e 2nd Italian Zebrafish Meeting (Pisa, Italy - uary 30 to February 1st ) 9 Aquatic Models of Human Disease Conference, 29 - ober 4, ine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, Massachusetts.

At MDA, we take a big picture perspective across e full spectrum of neuromuscular diseases to uncover scientific and medical break roughs at accelerate treatments and cures. Mutation or morpholino knockdown of ush1c depletes harmonin protein in zebrafish larvae. We obtained a nonsense mutation in ush1c from e Zebrafish TILLING Consortium by screening for mutations in e first PDZ-domain-encoding region of e gene (PDZ1). We recovered a line, ush1c fh293, at harbors a nonsense mutation in e fif exon, which encodes e C-terminal portion of e PDZ1 domain. Cell shape dynamics, motility, and cell proliferation all depend on e actin cytoskeleton. Malignant cancer cells hijack e actin network to grow and migrate to secondary sites. Understanding e function of actin regulators is erefore of major interest. In e present study, we identify e actin cross-linking protein Filamin/Cheerio (Cher) as a mediator of malignancy in genetically. 30, · e Zebrafish Core helps researchers of any expertise perform zebrafish experiments aimed at illuminating basic biology and human disease mechanisms, ereby advancing e NIH and NICHD research mission.
