24217618 Erlin-2 and the related erlin-1 were found to negatively regulate cholesterol and fatty acid biosynthesis in cultured cell models when the proteins were depleted by RNAi. The proteins also selectively bound cholesterol.
24217618 Here we show that the multimeric ER proteins erlins-1 and -2 are additional sterol regulatory element binding protein regulators.
23109145 ERLIN2 loss on cell growth may advance understanding of the mechanism behind motor neuron degeneration in primary lateral sclerosis
23085305 ERLIN2 was found to be responsible for causing hereditary spastic paraplegia in a Saudi family.
22771797 a novel brain gamma-secretase associated protein , erlin-2, that resides in detergent resistant membranes and affects amyloid beta-peptide production.
22690709 a novel role for ERLIN2 in supporting cancer cell growth by promoting the activation of the key lipogenic regulator SREBP1c and the production of cytosolic lipid droplets.
22681620 ERLIN2 may confer a selective growth advantage for breast cancer cells by facilitating a cytoprotective response to various cellular stresses associated with oncogenesis.
22360420 A protein encoded by this locus was found to be differentially expressed in postmortem brains from patients with atypical frontotemporal lobar degeneration.
21796390 study describes an extended consanguineous Saudi family in which hereditary spastic paraplegia is linked to SPG18, an autosomal recessive locus, and show it is associated with a nullimorphic deletion of ERLIN2
21330303 The gene encodes endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lipid raft-associated protein 2 that mediates the ER-associated degradation of activated inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors and other substrates.
19751772 m3 receptor-expressing HeLa cells are a valuable system for studying IP(3) receptor ERAD, and suggest that the SPFH1/2 complex is a factor that selectively mediates the ERAD of activated IP(3) receptors.
19240031 Results suggest that this novel SPFH1/2 complex is a recognition factor that targets IP(3)Rs and perhaps other substrates for ERAD.
17502376 SPFH2 as a key endoplasmic reticulum associated degradation pathway component and suggest that it may act as a substrate recognition factor.
16835267 Erlin-1 and erlin-2 are novel members of the prohibitin family of proteins that define lipid-raft-like domains of the ER.
