Target Background

Gene References into Functions
  1. These findings show that POMC methylation status in the blood of children is associated with metabolic profiles. Therefore, we suggest that the DNA methylation status might serve as a potential epigenetic biomarkers of metabolic syndrome. PMID: 29598821

Data suggest that the stress of intermittent hypoxia up-regulates expression of mRNA and protein for POMC and CART in neuronal cell lines; GATA2 and GATA3 appear to be involved in these stress mechanisms.
