26932696 Polymorphism +252 LT gene did not show any significant association with COPD.
26554163 Studied six SNP loci: (rs2279115 of BCL2 gene, rs804270 of NEIL2 gene, rs909253 of LTA gene, rs2294008 of PSCA gene, rs3765524 and rs10509670 of PLCE1 gene) to evaluate gastric cancer risk using magnetic nanoparticles and universal tagged arrays.
26221924 TNF-alpha (-308G/A), TNF-beta (+252A/G) and IL-10 (-1082G/A, -819C/T and -592C/A) polymorphisms are associated with the susceptibility of oral lichen planus.
26114114 These results support an association between ANKK1 and LTA genetic markers and vulnerability to schizophrenia and show the potential influence of just one copy of the mutant C or G allele in the Egyptian population.
26108796 Studied the association between immuno-modulatory gene polymorphisms (including LTA) and risk for nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma in a Chinese population. Found The LTA +252 GA + AA genotypes were associated with increased risk for NK/T-cell lymphoma.
26076780 TNFB+252G/A was associated with presence of immune thrombocytopenia.
25981594 MTHFR, TGFbeta1, and TNFB polymorphisms are not significantly associated with the risk of osteoporosis in rheumatoid arthritis.
25980610 Biotin-pulldown assay showed that HuR specifically interacts with the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) of the LTalpha mRNA
25931031 LTA polymorphism is associated with genetic susceptibility of systemic lupus in Asians, but not in rheumatoid arthritis.
25915535 LTalpha plays a role in malignant angiogenesis and disease progression in Cutaneous T cell lymphoma and may serve as a therapeutic target in this disease.
