25889438 HSPB7 loci is associated in the pathophysiologuy of ischemic heart failure.
24585183 Results imply that HSBP7 is likely to be a tumor suppressor gene regulated by p53 and its downregulation by hypermethylation may play a critical role in renal carcinogenesis.
22785082 HSPB7 is a potential early biomarker after MI and serves as an independent risk factor of ACS in patients with acute chest pain.
21731611 Overexpression of HSPB1, as well as HSPB6, HSPB7 and HSPB8 independently protect against tachycardia remodeling by attenuation of the RhoA GTPase pathway at different levels.
20975947 Data show a significant association between a SNP in HSPB7 gene (rs1739843, minor allele frequency 39%) and idiopathic DCM.
20975947 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
20124441 The rs1738943 shows that although this SNP is located within HSPB7, it resides in a block of high LD that spans HSPB7 and a nearby gene, CLCNKA, which encodes a voltage-sensitive chloride channel expressed mainly in the kidney.
20038796 Cardiac signaling genes exhibit unexpected sequence diversity in sporadic cardiomyopathy, revealing HSPB7 polymorphisms associated with disease.
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19464326 HSPB7 constitutively localized to SC35 splicing speckles, driven by its N-terminus. Unlike HSPB1 and HSPB5, that chaperoned heat unfolded substrates and kept them folding competent, HSPB7 did not support refolding.
