26507778 Data suggest gene expression in vascular endothelium is altered by dietary factors; aged garlic extract induces expression of HMOX1 (heme oxygenase-1) and GCLM via activation of NRF2-ARE (nuclear factor erythroid 2-antioxidant response element) signaling.
26365678 Data suggest expression of hepatocyte GCLC and GCLM can be regulated by dietary component; alpha-lipoic acid, a vitamin B complex nutrient, protects against oxidative stress/cytotoxicity induced by cadmium via restoration of GCLC and GCLM expression.
26220190 This study demonstrated that Tuberous sclerosis complex neuropathology requires glutamate-cysteine ligase.
25789740 Knockdown of glutamate cysteine ligase catalytic subunit by siRNA causes the gold nanoparticles-induced cytotoxicity in lung cancer cells.
25353619 miR-433 targets both catalytic (GCLc) and regulatory (GCLm) subunits of GCL.
24786516 miR-320a has a role in modulating the induction of HO-1, GCLM and OKL38 by oxidized phospholipids in endothelial cells
24557597 Upregulation of both GCLC and GLCM mRNA levels in response to cysteine deprivation was dependent on new protein synthesis.
24535845 Ten of the 17 maternal SNPs and 2 of the 17 fetal SNPs were found within the GCLM gene conotruncal heart defect cases.
23743623 TP is expressed at high levels in human GBM tumors and shRNA knockdown of TP in U87 GBM cells results in a significant increase in cellular GCL enzymatic activity
21555518 GCLM is a functional target gene of the BACH1 transcription factor according to ChIP-seq and knockdown analysis in HEK 293 cells.
