27129211 Alpha B-crystalline plays an important regulatory role in exosome biogenesis.
26878210 alphaB-crystallin is an important regulator of epithelial-mesenchymal transition, acting as a molecular chaperone for SMAD4 and as its potential therapeutic target for preventing subretinal fibrosis development in neovascular age-related macular degeneration
26657544 Similar to wild type alphaA- and alphaB-crystallins, the deamidated mutants showed strong interaction with betaA3-crystallin.
26620801 Data show that phosphorylation of crystallin alphaB (cryAB) deters its packaging into vesicles for exosomal secretion.
26464626 alpha B crystallin is an independent prognostic factor of infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the breast
26458046 These data suggest that alphaB-crystallin uses its inherent structural plasticity to expose distinct binding interfaces and thus interact with a wide range of structurally variable clients.
26415747 Phosphorylation of alphaB-crystallin has dual role that manifests either beneficial or deleterious consequences depending on the extent of phosphorylation and interaction with cytoskeleton. [review]
26402864 two novel missense mutations, p.R11C and p.R12C, in CRYAB associated with autosomal recessive congenital nuclear cataracts.
26351848 In the lens epithelium of the high myopia-related cataract group and the age related cataract group, the mRNA and soluble protein expression of aA- and aB-crystallin were both decreased.
26341790 The multifunctional activity of human alphaB crystallin results from the interactive peptide sequences exposed on the surface of the molecule. [review]
