24667918 Microarray analysis indicates HIV-1 Tat-induced upregulation of carboxypeptidase M (CPM) in primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells
24108126 CPM binding to extracellular loop 2 of the B1R results in positive allosteric modulation of B1R signaling, and disruption of this interaction could provide a novel therapeutic approach to reduce pathological B1R signaling.
23172796 Carboxypeptidase M expression is lost in human renal cell carcinoma tumor cells, whereas it is abundant in tumor-associated foam cells and neovasculature.
22157720 novel marker and cellular player in lipid uptake and/or metabolism of activated macrophages by promoting foam cell formation
21454694 CPM and B1Rs on cell membranes form a critical complex that potentiates B1R signaling.
20673876 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19820690 CPM amplification could be used as an alternative diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of well-differentiated liposarcoma/atypical lipomatous tumors.
18292211 Cleavage of the C-terminal lysine residue of SDF-1alpha by CPM leads to attenuated chemotactic responses.
18187413 Carboxypeptidase M and kinin B1 receptors interact to facilitate efficient b1 signaling from B2 agonists
15066430 Results report the crystallization of human carboxypeptidase M and its 3.0 angstrom crystal structure.
12457462 CPM is membrane-bound via attachment of glycosylphosphatidylinositol at Ser406. Glu264 is a critical catalytic residue, whereas Glu260 affects stability and substrate kinetics.
11891060 Multiple transcription start sites in two regions ~30 kb apart are flanked by two unique functional promoters. Five major types of transcripts resulting from multiple transcription start sites and alternate splicing in the 5-prime region were identified.
