26634210 Both MIP-3alpha and cystatin A overexpressions in NPC tumor tissues were strong independent factors of poor prognosis in NPC patients.
25785582 a novel pathway of CSTA regulation involving Dsg2
23656633 High levels of bioactive recombinant stefins A and B can be produced by fermentation in P. pastoris.
23546957 Data indicate that desmoplakin (DSP) and cystatin A (CSTA) interaction and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), IGF-binding protein 7 (IGFBP7) and syndecan 1 (SDC1) interaction were observed in protein-protein interaction (PPI) network.
23534700 We identified a homozygous nonsense mutation (p.Lys22X) in the CSTA gene in acral peeling skin syndrome.
22787201 Imiquimod suppresses propagation of herpes simplex virus 1 by upregulation of cystatin A via the adenosine receptor A1 pathway
22615763 findings provide a new molecular understanding of the mechanisms of MYOC-causative glaucoma and reveal CSTA, a serum biomarker for cancer, as a potential biomarker and drug for the treatment of MYOC-induced glaucoma
21944047 study identified loss-of-function mutations in the gene for protease inhibitor cystatin A as the underlying genetic cause of exfoliative ichthyosis
21412248 CSTA significantly increases the risk of developing psoriasis in HLA-Cw6 individuals
21325429 Findings establish that genetic variability, smoking, and COPD all influence CSTA expression, as does SCC, supporting the concept that CSTA may make pivotal contributions to NSCLC pathogenesis in early and late stages of disease development.
