23570370 Results indicate an association of MEPE gene inactivation with decreased survival after DNA damage.
22341070 results indicated that MEPE appeared to play an important positive role in proliferation and osteogenesis differentiation of DPCs through interaction with downstream signals.
21779381 Among migraineurs with aura rs7698623 in MEPE (OR = 6.37; 95% CI 3.15-12.90; p = 2.7x10(-7)) and rs4975709 in IRX4 (OR = 5.06; 95% CI 2.66-9.62; p = 7.7x10(-7)) appeared to be associated with ischemic stroke.
21739089 MEPE or the MEPE-derived acidic serine aspartate-rich MEPE-associated motif peptide may contribute to decreased bone mineralization in Oncogenic osteomalacia patients.
21312267 Sclerostin acts through regulation of the PHEX/MEPE axis at the preosteocyte stage and serves as a master regulator of physiologic bone mineralization.
20581062 These results suggest that abnormal MEPE cleavage occurs when PHEX activity is deficient in humans.
19998030 This study demonstrates the importance of posttranslational modification for the site-specific activity of MEPE and its ASARM peptide.
19679205 The patterns of expression of FGF-23, MEPE, and DMP1 differ markedly in trabecular bone, suggesting that individual osteocytes may have specialized functions.

19031789 MEPE may play a regulatory role in periodontal ligament cell osteogenic differentiation.
19005008 MEPE is a candidate phosphatonin involved in phosphate homeostasis, acting in both the kidney and the gastrointestinal tract
18547474 MEPE expression is higher when cells proliferate, whereas it is downregulated as cells differentiated
15954904 MEPE is expressed on the luminal surface of kidney proximal tubules.
15329369 MEPE is expressed in salivary gland ducts.
15292364 The results are consistent with MEPE being involved in phosphate and bone metabolism in a normal population.
15108058 MEPE is predominantly expressed by osteocytes in human bone, with significant expression by osteocytes within mineralized bone
12791601 There is evidence for a hormone/enzyme/extracellular matrix protein cascade involving fibroblastic growth factor 23 (FGF23), a phosphate-regulating gene with homologies to (PHEX) and (MEPE)--REVIEW
12489176 MEPE/OF45, a new dentin/bone matrix protein and candidate gene for dentin diseases mapping to chromosome 4q21. Expressed during odontogenesis.
12421822 Mice deficient in an ortholog of MEPE show increased bone mass and are resistant to aging-related bone loss.
