AIF1

(redirected from IRT1)

AIF1

A gene on chromosome 6p21.3 that encodes allograft inflammatory factor 1, an actin-binding, cytokine- and interferon-induced protein that regulates proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, resulting in an anti-inflammatory response to vessel wall trauma.

AIF1 activities
• Enhances lymphocyte migration and actin-bundling activity of LCP1.
• Plays a role in RAC signalling, phagocytosis and in vascular inflammation.
• Promotes proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and of T cells.
• May play a role in macrophage activation and function.

Expression of the IRT1 metal transporter is controlled by metals at the levels of transcript and protein accumulation.

Avaliar os limiares de frequencia cardiaca no teste de Carminatti (Tcar) e Yo-Yo intermittent test nivel 1(Yo-Yo IRT1) atraves da determinacao das variaveis associadas ao ponto de deflexao da frequencia cardiaca foi o objetivo do presente estudo.
This study had the intention to evaluate the cardiac frequency in response to intermittent progressive tests, T-car and Yo-Yo IRT1, through the determination of the variables associated with the deflection point of the cardiac frequency throughout the variables determination associated to the deflection point at the cardiac frequency.
Alem disso, segundo os mesmos autores, a atividade do ferro quelato redutase e do transportador IRT1 sao induzidas fazendo com que aumente o transporte de Mn, Co, Zn e Cd, ja que IRT1 possui menos especifidade por Fe que outros transportadores.
The Picower study found that SIRT1 aids memory and synaptic plasticity through a previously unknown microRNA-based mechanism: IRT1 keeps a specific microRNA in check, allowing key plasticity proteins to be expressed.
There are several molecular forms of IRT; the 2 major forms secreted by exocrine cells of the pancreas are trypsinogen 1 (cationic trypsinogen or IRT1) and trypsinogen 2 (anionic trypsinogen or IRT2) (2, 3).
Characterization of single genes involved in metal homeostasis has yielded important insights into their functions and potential use in phytoremediation (Song et al., 2004), the most important being the high affinity iron-uptake system, IRT1, of A.
These cadmium resistant mutants will be used to find the regulation mechanism of IRT1 in Arabidopsis thaliana.
They hope to use the gene, iron-regulated transporter 1 (IRT1), to create plants that take up lots of iron and thus serve as a source of iron-rich food.
In this context, Rampinini et al [12] showed that the deterioration in LSPT score, induced by simulation, was correlated to the players' physical fitness, as measured by the level 1 Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test (Yo-Yo IRT1).
