25490467 HIV-1 Vif binds more strongly to autophagy-related protein 4 (ATG4)-cleaved form I (LC3-I) than to ATG4-cleaved form II (LC3-II) in an A3G-independent manner
25426560 We conclude that miR-24-3p regulates autophagy by targeting ATG4A
24256813 The demonstration that expression of ATG4A in cells increased stem properties provided an indication of its biological function. Hypomethylation of ATG4A and HIST1H2BN in ovarian tumor-initiating cells predicts poor prognosis for ovarian cancer patients.
24229464 The autophagy regulator ATG4A was found to be essential for the maintenance of a sub-population with cancer stem cell properties and to regulate breast cancer cell tumourigenicity.
23508006 The actions of ATG4 family members (particularly ATG4B) are required for the control of autophagosome fusion with late, degradative compartments in differentiating human erythroblasts.
21297227 statistical analysis of APG4A gene confirmed the characterisation of each protein-coding gene present in human genome Xq22.1
21177865 Atg4B possessed the broadest spectrum against all substrates, followed by Atg4A for ATG8 substrates
21122541 no association between SNP rs807185 and the presence of granulomas in Crohn's disease
20819778 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
17347651 The cysteine protease HsAtg4 is identified as a direct target for oxidation by hydrogen peroxide, and a cysteine residue located near the HsAtg4 catalytic site as critical for this regulation.
12473658 HsApg4A cleaves the COOH terminus of GATE-16
