  10. Research progress in the genetics of hyperuricaemia and gout.

    Hereditas (Beijing) 38(4):300 (2016) PMID 27103454

    Gout is one of the most common inflammatory arthritis caused by hyperuricaemia, which is affected by both genetic factors and environmental factors. Early researches show that a few of rare monogenic mutations, such as PRPS1 and HPRT1 mutations, lead to abnormal purine anabolism and then cause h...
  11. Characterization of a cluster of CTCF-binding sites in a protocadherin regulatory region.

    Hereditas (Beijing) 38(4):323 (2016) PMID 27103456

    The mammalian clustered protocadherin (Pcdh) locus contains more than 50 highly-similar genes arrayed in tandem. These Pcdh genes are organized into three closely-linked clusters (Pcdhα, Pcdhβ, and Pcdhγ). The encoded PCDH proteins play critical roles in neuronal diversity, single cell identity,...
  12. RNA epigenetic modification: N6-methyladenosine.
