26870797 mimecan is a satiety hormone in adipose tissue, and that mimecan inhibits food intake independently of leptin signaling by inducing IL-1beta and IL-6 expression in the hypothalamus.
26206738 Increased plasma mimecan levels are independently associated with increased arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients.
26045825 OIF may be an indicator of the earlier-stage diabetic nephropathy in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus
25953442 OGN might play a role in the development of Ovarian Cancer, and may be a therapeutic target in OC.
25463067 The lack of the proteoglycan OGN does not affect the progression of atherosclerosis in mice. Possible causes for the absence of phenotype in the Apoe/Ogn double mutants are discussed.
25371314 Osteomodulin, osteoglycin, and asporin appear to be distinctly regulated in osteoarthritis labrum compared to OA cartilage.
24651681 Circulating OGN and NGAL/MMP9 complex are promising biomarkers that are expressed in vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques and may have incremental value for prediction of MACE within 1 year after coronary angiography.
23714241 We found that IGF-2 and IGFBP2 synergistically increased neurite outgrowth via enhanced early signaling through the IGF type 1 receptor.

18243607 High expression in the cochlea may be suggestive of a fundamental role for a transcript in the auditory system
17895523 All adenoma and cancer tissues did not express mimecan, but all normal mucosa did (P < 0.01).
16189248 This work provides insight into the regulating mechanism of mimecan in pituitary and suggests that mimecan may be an unidentified pituitary secretory protein, and certain pituitary cells secreting ACTH or GH also secrete mimecan.
10373482 Includes the characterization of two human splice variants.
