26893822 Report failed upregulation of TFAM protein and mitochondrial DNA in oxidatively deficient fibers in skeletal muscle of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients.
26797282 our results revealed that stimulation of mitochondrial biogenesis by carvedilol resulted in functional gain of the mitochondria by showing increased oxygen consumption and mitochondrial respiratory rate.
26445116 Results showed that TFAM formed oligomers in mitochondria by in situ chemical cross-linking and suggested the importance of the dimerization of TFAM molecules in the distribution of mtDNA in cells.
26307971 Data show that mtTFA proteins are highly expressed in cancer and drug-resistant cells compared to normal cells, and the mtTFA expression is upregulated by signals of oxidative and DNA damage stress in cancer cells. [review]
25822152 TFAM overexpression suppressed mitoROS and their upregulation in rat cardiomyocytes.
25556274 indicating that miRNA-214 and MTFA may become important candidates for developing promising therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cervical cancer
25243473 expression of PGC1alpha and TFAM varies between ovarian carcinoma subtypes; clear-cell carcinoma consists of undetectability of PGC1alpha/TFAM, and low ERalpha/Ki-67. high-grade serous carcinomas had a converse state of PGC1alpha/TFAM, ERalpha positivity and high Ki-67 index
25108120 The combination of strong mtTFA expression and a high survivin index may predict a poor prognosis in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma
24875355 The mitochondria targeting sequence-deficient hTFAM also repressed Tfam promoter activity to the same degree as hTFAM.
24837562 Methylation of TFAM promoters changed 2 days after gastric bypass.
