Summary of "Genotypic-Phenotypic Screening of Galectin-3 in Relation to Risk Towards Rheumatoid Arthritis in North Indian Population."

Galectin-3, a 35 kDa protein, is the only known member of chimera type galectin family. A growing body of evidences demonstrated the pro-inflammatory role of galectin-3 in the pathogenesis of Rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Genetic analysis of the relation between IL2RA/IL2RB and rheumatoid arthritis risk.

The biological mechanisms driving disease chronicity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are largely unidentified. Therefore, we aimed to determine genetic risk factors for RA.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The phenotypic and genotypic differences among individuals in a population.

The origin, production or development of cancer through genotypic and phenotypic changes which upset the normal balance between cell proliferation and cell death. Carcinogenesis generally requires a constellation of steps, which may occur quickly or over a period of many years.

A galectin found preferentially expressed in the gastrointestinal tract. The protein occurs as a homodimer with two 14-kDa subunits.

A galectin found in the small and large intestine and the stomach. It occurs as a homodimer with two 36-kDa subunits and is localized to sites of cell adhesion where it may play role in assembly of ADHERENS JUNCTIONS.

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
