Default TPA Gene Mutations



Are there any human diseases associated with mutations in the TPA (Tissue plasminogen activator) gene?

Which TPA gene? Taurine-pyruvate aminotransferase gene? Tissue plasminogen activator gene? Or which other?

I think you should be more specific about your question. Even though I don't think I can help you answer that question, there may be people that can and it should be very helpful for them to know what do you mean with TPA. It will be better to you too, because that way you will have straighter answers.

Thanks for pointing that out, by TPA gene here I am referring to the "tissue plasminogen activator" gene.

About my above post, I'm guessing your refering to the second, since taurine-pyruvate aminotransferase is a bacterial enzyme (or so I read), so, sorry for bringing it around. However, there TPA-induced genes in human (TPA standing for tetradecanoylphorbol acetate), so I still think you should be more specific to avoid any confusion.

I found some articles concerning TPA polymorphisms in human diseases:
