Gene RIF (11)

25037218 Data indicate that haptoglobin-related protein (Hpr) is presented at the surface of hepG2 cells.
22433445 Our analysis illustrates the complex interplay between functions and haplotypes of adjacent genes, environmental context and natural selection, and offers insights into potential use of haptoglobin or haptoglobin-related protein as therapeutic agents.
20805508 show that trypanosome lytic factor-1 resistance in Trypanosoma brucei brucei is caused by reduced expression of the Hp/Hb receptor gene.
20800603 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19324878 at low pH. Trypanosome lytic factor, apoL-1, and apoA-1 exhibit specificity for anionic membranes, whereas Hpr permeabilizes both anionic and zwitterionic membranes.
17845074 Infection by Trypanosoma brucei brucei causes hemolysis that triggers activation of trypanosome lytic factor by formation of haptoglobin-related protein-hemoglobin complexes, enhancing binding, trypanolytic activity, and clearance of parasites.
17360487 apoL-I is responsible for the trypanolytic activity of normal human serum, whereas Hpr allows fast uptake of the carrier HDL particles in trypanolysis
16778136 recombinant Hpr binds hemoglobin as efficiently as haptoglobin
11814582 No trypanosome lytic activity in the sera of mice producing human haptoglobin-related protein
