26879543 Upon neuronal differentiation, transitions in redox states upregulates expression of ATOX1 and its partner ATP7A, producing higher flux of copper through the secretory pathway.
26866891 Multiple genetic models identified genetic associations with systolic blood pressure and ATOX1.
26784148 results suggest the possibility of a therapy with copper-chelating or ionophore drugs in subtypes of tumors showing specific alterations in ATOX1 expression
26745464 In addition to Atox1, the human cytoplasm also contains Cu chaperones for loading of superoxide dismutase 1 (i.e. CCS) and cytochrome c oxidase in mitochondria (i.e. Cox17). [review]
26745413 C-Terminus of Human Copper Importer Ctr1 Acts as a Binding Site and Transfers Copper to Atox1
26437801 Cu chaperone function of Atox1 mediated through Cu transporter ATP7A is required for VEGF-induced angiogenesis via activation of Cu enzyme lysyl oxidase.
26213915 To identify new interactions partners of Atox1, a yeast two-hybrid screen with a large human placenta library of cDNA fragments using Atox1 as bait, was performed.
25962064 Studied the localization of Atox1 in HeLa cells using fluorescence imaging in combination with in vitro binding experiments to fluorescently labeled DNA duplexes harboring the proposed promotor sequence.
25673218 Human cytoplasmic copper chaperones Atox1 and CCS exchange copper ions in vitro
25111319 Cisplatin is one of the most used anticancer drugs. Its cellular influx and delivery to target DNA may involve the copper chaperone Atox1 protein.
