26362536 HIV-1 Gag interacts with FRG1 as demonstrated by proximity dependent biotinylation proteomics
25695429 FRG1 mice overexpressing FHL1 showed an improvement in the dystrophic phenotype
25603992 Penetrance of FSHD1 is low for largest alleles in the range of 9-10 RUs, and lower in women than men.
25326393 Our results demonstrate that FRG1 is a direct DUX4 transcriptional target uncovering a novel regulatory circuit contributing to Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
25256356 Study showed that the variability in clinical severity of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy in FSHD1 and FSHD2 individuals is dependent on individual differences in susceptibility to D4Z4 hypomethylation.
23720823 This study suggests a novel role of FRG1 as epigenetic regulator of muscle differentiation and indicates that Suv4-20h1 has a gene-specific function in myogenesis.
23166591 HIV-1 Gag interacts with FRG1 as demonstrated by proximity dependent biotinylation proteomics
21699900 These data provide the first biochemical activities (actin binding and RNA binding) for human FRG1 and the characterization of the endogenous human FRG1, together indicating that FRG1 is involved in multiple aspects of RNA biogenesis.
21695143 new insights into the gene deregulation characterizing both FSHD-1 and FSHD-2, in which miRNAs may play a role
21603621 depressed myoblast proliferation may contribute to the pathology of mice overexpressing FRG1 and may play a part in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy
20970242 in muscle FRG1 is a developmentally regulated sarcomeric protein suggesting FRG1 may perform a muscle-specific function
19607661 study compared chromatin structure & tridimensional interaction of the D4Z4 array and FRG1 gene promoter, and FRG1 expression, in control and FSHD cells
19097195 Data show that frg1 is expressed in and essential for the development of the tadpole musculature, and suggest that maintenance of normal FRG1 levels is critical for proper muscle development in frogs and humans.
18852887 differently from normal myoblasts, the 4qA/B marker interacted directly with the promoters of the FRG1 and ANT1 genes in Facio-Scapulo-Humeral Dystrophy cells
16341202 FRG1 transgenic mice develop a muscular dystrophy with features characteristic of the human disease; by contrast, FRG2 and ANT1 transgenic mice seem normal
