Gene RIF (12)

26880110 TNMD is upregulated in adipose tissue of insulin-resistant versus insulin-sensitive individuals. TNMD expression increases in human preadipocytes during differentiation, whereas silencing TNMD blocks adipogenesis.
23593173 results suggest that Tnmd acts on the maturation or maintenance of the PDL by positively regulating cell adhesion via its BRICHOS domain
22700804 Report differential expression and cellular localization of novel isoforms of the tendon biomarker tenomodulin and suggest possible roles in tenocyte proliferation and tendon injury.
19602561 Human adipose tissue TNMD gene expression is highly affected by obesity, adipose tissue location, and weight loss, indicating that TNMD may play a role in adipose tissue function.
19524323 According to these results the sequence variation of TNMD is not associated with alzheimer disease, but might modify the effect of APOE epsilon4-allele in women.
19524323 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19381347 TNMD could be a novel candidate gene for age-related macular degeneration.
19381347 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18982016 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18838562 Tenomodulin is expressed abundantly in the elastin-rich subendothelial outer layer of the normal chordae tendineae cordis.
18580688 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
17495183 Polymorphisms are associated with adiposity and also with glucose metabolism and conversion from glucose intolerance to type 2 diabetes.
