Gene RIF (12)

26433464 SCA38 subtype is very rare in Mainland China; no disease-related gene mutations in ELOVL5.
26321664 performed a detailed promoter/enhancer analysis of ELOVL5 gene, and identified two new SREBP binding sites, one in the 10 kb upstream region and one in the exon 1
25065913 In transfection experiments, subcellular localization of altered ELOVL5 showed a perinuclear distribution with a signal increase in the Golgi compartment, whereas the wild-type showed a widespread signal in the endoplasmic reticulum.
24167612 Changes in the mRNA-expression levels of FADS1 and 2 directly affect blood DGLA levels and D6D activity. This study suggests that lower mRNA-expressions of FADS2 and ELOVL5 are associated with higher risk of atopic eczema in young children.
23099444 a novel link between Elovl5-mediated synthesis of 18:1,n-7 and GNG through the control of the mTORC2-Akt-FoxO1 pathway
22293571 minor allele copies at rs2294867 associated with an increase in total and LDL cholesterol...number of minor allele copies at rs761179 associated with increase in total cholesterol... However, associations not replicated in independent populations.
21508110 Typical POAG associated with ELOVL5 gene polymorphism may have a late rather than an early onset.
21383846 Not being breastfed resulted in a disadvantage in cognition (5 to 8 points) among children CC homozygote for rs2397142 (low ELOVL5 activity), but not among those carrying the G allele.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20363506 Our genome-wide association study identified SRBD1 and ELOVL5 as new susceptibility genes for (normal tension glaucoma) NTG.
