A second gene for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease was identified by positional cloning. Nonsense mutations in this gene (PKD2) segregated with the disease in three PKD2 families. The predicted 968-amino acid sequence of the PKD2 gene product has six transmembrane spans with intracellular amino- and carboxyl-termini. The PKD2 protein has amino acid similarity with PKD1, the Caenorhabditis elegans homolog of PKD1, and the family of voltage-activated calcium (and sodium) channels, and it contains a potential calcium-binding domain.

Overexpression of the m4 and mα genes of the E(spl)-Complex antagonizes Notch mediated lateral inhibition Apidianakis, Yiorgos; Nagel, A. C.; Chalkiadaki, Angeliki; Preiss, A.; Delidakis, Christos (1999)Intercellular signalling mediated by Notch proteins is crucial to many cell fate decisions in metazoans. Its profound effects on cell fate and proliferation require that a complex set of responses involving positive and ...
Antoniades, Ioanna; Stylianou, Panayiota; Christodoulou, Neophytos; Skourides, Paris A. (2017)We previously identified focal adhesion kinase (FAK) as an important regulator of ciliogenesis in multiciliated cells. FAK and other focal adhesion (FA) proteins associate with the basal bodies and their striated rootlets ...
Spectral density ratio based clustering methods for the binary segmentation of protein sequences: A comparative study Ioannou, Androulla; Fokianos, Konstantinos; Promponas, Vasilis J. (2010)We compare several spectral domain based clustering methods for partitioning protein sequence data. The main instrument for this exercise is the spectral density ratio model, which specifies that the logarithmic ratio of ...
