25025693 Polymorphisms in ALP, ENPP1 and ANKH are important genetic risk factors contributing to Pseudoxanthoma elasticum
24467728 This study validates the association between a functional polymorphism in the 5' UTR of ANKH and Chondrocalcinosis
24293574 ANK was concentrated around crystal deposits and correlated with markers of chondrocyte hypertrophy. These findings support a role for ANK in CPPD crystal formation in cartilage.
23769559 expression levels of type II collagen, aggrecan, and ANK in endplate chondrocytes of experimental group were lower than that of control group and phosphorylation level of JNK in the experimental group which was higher than that in the control group
23726953 Exploratory tympanotomy might improve the hearing outcome in patients with this syndrome and therefore surgery has a limited audiometric benefit in general
23612078 The aim of this study was to investigate two mineralization-related genes TNAP and ANKH polymorphisms associated with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in the North Chinese Han population.
23421944 Analysis of the present CMD family suggested the presence of a maternal mosaicism in an ANKH mutation, and the mother who was mosaic for the ANKH mutation had no apparent clinical or radiological features of CMD.
22647861 We report a novel mutation, not previously described, in ANKH exon 1, wherein serine replaces proline, in a case of early-onset severe calcium pyrophosphate disease associated with metabolic abnormalities, with similar findings in the proband's father
22437419 TNF-activated NF-kappaB promotes inflammation-accelerated vascular calcification by inhibiting ankylosis protein homolog expression and consequent pyrophosphate secretion.
22150416 Two novel 18 and 12 base pair in-frame deletions are the largest ANKH mutations causing craniometaphyseal dysplasia identified to date.
