26871801 These results indicate that megsin gene variants may play a role in the severity, development, and/or progression of IgAN in Northwest Chinese population
26763456 Recessive missense mutation of SERPINB7 gene was found in Japanese families diagnosed with palmoplantar keratosis.
25940237 Results show splice variants from the two recurrent splice-site mutations in SERPINB7, provide evidence for the pathogenicity of the mutations and suggest an in-frame deletion of exon 3 may cause NPPK and that the CD-loop could affect SERPINB7 function
25007157 Megsin 2093C/T TT genotype, and C25663G G allele and GG genotype were associated with the risk of IgAN in Asian population
24954659 The mean concentration of serpin B7 at 28-32 weeks was 1.5-fold higher in women with subsequent preterm deliveries compared to controls.
24773080 These data clearly provide further evidence that NPPK is caused by loss-of-function mutations in SERPINB7.
24575807 megsin 2093C/T C allele may be genetic marker for IgA nephropathy susceptibility [review]
24514002 study reports on seven unrelated Chinese patients with Nagashima-Type Palmoplantar Keratosis with four underlying SERPINB7 mutations, of which one is a recurrent variant (c.796C>T)
24207119 All of the identified mutants are predicted to cause premature termination upstream of the reactive site, which inhibits the proteases, suggesting a complete loss of the protease inhibitory activity of SERPINB7 in palmoplantar keratosis skin.
23383108 A synthetic peptide corresponding to the immunosuppressive domain (amino acids 574-592) of HIV-1 gp41 upregulates the expression of serpin peptidase inhibitor, clade B, member 7 (SERPINB7) in peptide-treated PBMCs
