27058448 The Glu209 GNAQ and GNA11 missense variants we identified are common in uveal melanoma and have been shown to constitutively activate MAPK and/or YAP signaling. Our data indicate that chorangioma is probably not the placental counterpart of congenital hemangiomas associated with mutations altering Gln209 in GNAQ or GNA11.
26887939 data suggest that the interaction between this novel region in Galphaq and the effector PKCzeta is a key event in Galphaq signaling.
26865629 findings demonstrate that hNPS-(1-10) is a biased agonist favoring Galphaq-dependent signaling. It may represent a valuable chemical probe for further investigation of the therapeutic potential of human NPS receptor-directed signalingin vivo.
26778290 extensive dermal melanocytosis and phakomatosis pigmentovascularis are associated with activating mutations in GNA11 and GNAQ, genes that encode Galpha subunits of heterotrimeric G proteins
26775782 We conclude that enrichment of GNAQ (R183Q) in port-wine stain (PWS) blood vessels may induce consecutive activation of c-Jun N-terminal kinases and extracellular signal regulated kinases, thus contributing to the pathogenesis of PWS.
26368812 Distribution of GNAQ and GNA11 Mutation Signatures in Uveal Melanoma Points to a Light Dependent Mutation Mechanism.
26192947 This is the second largest study on isolated, non-syndromic Port-wine stain; data suggest that GNAQ is the main genetic determinant in this condition. Moreover, isolated port-wine stains are distinct from capillary malformations seen in RASA1 disorders.
25955651 The results suggested that GNAQ mutation induced viability and migration of uveal melanoma cells via Notch signaling activation, which is mediated by YAP dephosphorylation and nuclear translocation.
25732870 Galphaq expression was negatively associated with interleukin-17A expression in RA patients, indicating that Galphaq negatively controlled the differentiation of Th17 cells.
25695059 Involved in the MAPK/ERK, PI3K/AKT, and GNAQ/11 pathways.
