26634308 Nav1.7 deletion has profound effects on gene expression, leading to an upregulation of enkephalin precursor Penk mRNA and met-enkephalin protein in sensory neurons.
26218633 Serum PENK-A levels were not associated with all-cause mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, and its association with cardiovascular mortality was strongly attenuated after accounting for all traditional risk factors.
26164485 The PENK polymorphism-and potentially opioid neurotransmission more generally-modulates functioning and structural integrity of brain regions.
25891176 BSP demonstrated that emodin, to a certain degree, affected the demethylation of tumor-suppressor genes P16, RASSF1A, and ppENK in the pancreatic cancer cell line PANC-1.
24937655 enhanced plasma proenkephalin A could be a useful, complementary tool to predict short- or long-term clinical outcome after severe traumatic brain injury.
24937654 increased plasma PENK-A levels are associated with disease severity and in-hospital mortality after acute intracerebral hemorrhage.
24496384 EPS led to the discovery of two novel immunomodulatory proteins, MFAP5 and PENK that when administered to mice subjected to endotoxemic shock, reversed the cytokine storm and provided a significant survival benefit
24289328 Promoter methylation of WIF1, PENK and NPY is associated with colorectal adenocarcinoma (CRC) diagnosis and can be used to CRC from other cancers.
23937196 Data from women undergoing hysterectomy for uterine fibroids suggest that uterine isthmian-cervical region exhibits nerve fibers expressing enkephalin (ENK); uterine fundus/corpus myoma pseudocapsules do not exhibit nerve fibers expressing ENK.
23395721 Peptide F is bound to white blood cells in the blood. Exercise alters Peptide F in the plasma and white blood cell blood fractions.
