26851002 High CTR1 Expression is associated with poor response to chemotherapy in Muscle-invasive Bladder Cancer.
26745413 C-Terminus of Human Copper Importer Ctr1 Acts as a Binding Site and Transfers Copper to Atox1
26205368 Studied the interaction of CTR1 and CTR2 in fully malignant HEK293T and OVCAR8 human ovarian cancer cells using a CRISPR-Cas9 knock out system.
26067577 Gene silencing of either CTR1 or DMT1 did not affect copper accumulation in cells, but deficiency in both CTR1 and DMT1 resulted in a complete inhibition of copper uptake.
26061257 Two methionine residues in the MXXXM motif of of the CTR1 second transmembrane domain are important for binding to silver.
25823781 allele distribution of the SLC31A1 was not different between group N and O, and out of the 11 SNPs of the SLC22A2 gene only the allele distribution of the nonsynonymous SNP was significantly different between patients who experienced ototoxicity
24837030 The data collected here shows that the Atox1 keeps its dimer nature also in the presence of the CTR1 c-terminal domain; however, two geometrical states are assumed by the Atox1.
24800945 NSC73306 is a transport substrate of CTR1
24792335 CTR1 expression may be necessary for therapeutic efficacy of platinum based drugs in non-small cell lung cancer treatment.
24703712 Data suggest that SLC31A1 and SLC31A2, despite being structurally closely related and sharing important amino acid motifs, play different roles in copper homeostasis and in platinum-based chemotherapy of neoplasms. [REVIEW]
