The article discusses the significance of the role of genetic risk factors that attributes to the pathogenesis of chronic pancreatitis. According to sources, the genetic basis of chronic pancreatitis is complex, but the frequency of hereditary pancreatitis, which may be related to the trypsinogen gene. The study involves subjects who gave their informed consent, approved by the local institution committee, and were followed up at least 3 years with no malignancy diagnosed during the period.

    The N21I missense mutation in the cationic trypsinogen gene is the second most frequent mutation in hereditary pancreatitis (HP). In this article, we suggest that the N21I mutation most likely arose as a gene conversion event in which the functional anionic trypsinogen gene acted as the donor...

    Objectives: Recently, it was reported that detection of K-ras point mutation at codon 12 in pancreatic juice is an objective method for the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, but a few reports have suggested that this might represent an early event in pancreatic oncogenesis. In the present study we...

    Members of the trypsin-like and chymotrypsin-like kallikrein family are important in the desquamation process. In this study, we isolated cDNA clones encoding trypsinogen 4 (brain trypsinogen) and a previously unreported isoform of trypsinogen from a human keratinocyte cDNA library. The...

    Trypsin activity is properly suppressed in the pancreatic acinar cells under normal conditions. A small amount of trypsinogen is converted to active trypsin and inactivated by pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor (PSTI), thereby preventing damage to pancreatic acinar cells as a first line of...

    The levels of serum immunoreactive trypsinogen and P-isoamylase in response to Bombesin intravenous infusion were evaluated in 25 controls, 18 patients with documented chronic pancreatitis, and nine subjects with nonpancreatic gastroenterological diseases. Mean immunoreactive trypsinogen peak...

    In summary, an experimental model that mimics the pseudocyst formation in man was produced in dogs. The following conditions were met: 1) encapsulated cyst containing pancreatic juice: 2) an actively secreting pancreas with hyperamylasemia and pancreatitis; 3) a ductal communication: and 4) more...

    Background and aims: Mutations in the cationic trypsinogen (protease, serine, 1 (trypsin 1); PRSSI gene are causally associated with recurrent acute and chronic pancreatitis. We investigated whether mutations in the PRSS1 gene are associated with hereditary and non-hereditary pancreatitis. As a...

P. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug2000, Vol. 95 Issue 8, p2061 

    OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene and cationic trypsinogen gene are associated with recurrent acute, or chronic idiopathic pancreatitis. METHODS: Twenty patients with idiopathic pancreatitis (11 women, nine men;...

    Aberrant methylation of CpG islands is a common mechanism for the dysregulation of tumor suppressor genes in a variety of human malignancies. Preproenkephalin ppENK) hypermethylation is recognized in 90% of pancreatic carcinoma (PCa) tissues, but not in normal pancreas. We analyzed ppENK...
