26305948 Data show the the interplay between the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and two regulatory proteins: antizyme (Az) and inhibitor (AzIN).
25813938 AzI1 fulfils an essential regulatory function in polyamine homeostasis and cell proliferation.
23844940 AZIN1 rs2679757 and TRPM5 rs886277 are associated with the risk of HBV-related liver cirrhosis in Chinese.
23291631 edited form has a stronger affinity to antizyme, and the resultant higher AZIN1 protein stability promotes cell proliferation through the neutralization of antizyme-mediated degradation of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and cyclin D1
21931692 AZ_95-176 is the minimal AZ peptide that is fully functioning in the binding of ODC and AZI and inhibition of their function.
21837750 minor allelic SNP variant in 12th exon of AZIN1 associated with slower rates of fibrosis progression favors expression of novel splice form, AZIN1 SV2, that inhibits expression of fibrogenic genes in hepatic stellate cells.
21586232 SNP rs2679757 in the AZIN1 gene is associated with the risk of HBV-related liver cirrhosis in Chinese patients.
20215859 Decreased ornithine decarboxylase is associated with prostate cancer.
15670771 This study also suggests that highly expressed AZI may be partly responsible for increased ODC activity and cellular transformation.
