27055013 The results demonstrate that DYN 1-17 and certain N-terminal fragments, produced in an inflamed environment, play an anti-inflammatory role by inhibiting NF-kappaB/p65 translocation.
26502829 This study found a significant haplotype-by-sex interaction, suggesting association with alcohol dependence in males but not females. The findings suggest that sex-dependent effects of PDYN variants in alcohol dependence are phenotype-specific.
26489614 PDYN gene promoter polymorphism might contribute to familial-risk temporal lobe epilepsy. (Review, meta-analysis)
26341936 Enhanced event-related potentials amplitudes suggest a hyper-active performance monitoring system in high PDYN expression individuals, and this might also be an indicator of a higher risk for internalizing disorders
26169942 This study generated the first mouse model for SCA23 and shown that mice expressing PDYN-R212W recapitulate many characteristics of the human phenotype of SCA23
25220237 REST represses PDYN expression in SH-SY5Y cells and the adult human brain and may have implications for mental health and brain/mental disorders.
25177835 Studied differential DNA-protein interactions of PDYN and OPRK1 SNPs significantly associated with alcohol dependence.
25048760 The present findings revealed a male-limited association between VNTR polymorphism and heroin dependence risk.
24587148 A genetic polymorphism of the endogenous opioid dynorphin modulates monetary reward anticipation in the corticostriatal loop.
24405578 This study demonistratedn that Neurocognitive and neuroinflammatory correlates of PDYN mRNA expression in the anterior cingulate in postmortem brain of HIV-infected subjects.
