26239059 Glycophorin-A-rich microparticles are released from evolving growing thrombi into the distal perfusing blood, and can be measured in peripheral blood. CD235a(+) cMPs may constitute a novel systemic biomarker of ongoing thrombosis.
25778531 GPA-deficient band 3 null erythrocytes are resistant to malaria infection.
25628009 The authors demonstrate that the initial vacuolar membrane around internalized Babesia divergens is formed from protein and lipid components of the red blood cells plasma membrane, including band 3, glycophorin A and spectrin.
25275127 Both HIV-1 Nef and Vpu downregulate the cell surface expression of glycophorin A (GYPA, CD235a)
25205096 PfEBA-175 engages multiple glycans of GpA encoded by exon 3 and that the presentation of glycans is likely required for high-avidity binding.
24858913 MNSs blood group glycophorin variants in Taiwan: a genotype-serotype correlation study of 'Mi(a)' and St(a) with report of two new alleles for St(a).
24043627 These data demonstrate the importance of PfEBA175 regions other than the DBL domains in the interaction with GYPA and merit their inclusion in an EBA175-based vaccine.
23722820 The expression of glycophorin A and osteoprotegerin is locally increased in carotid atherosclerotic lesions of symptomatic compared to asymptomatic patients.
21455273 Data suggest that glycophorin A (Gpa) increases expression and activity of Cl-/HCO3- exchanger Ae1, that G719D mutation renders Ae1 mutant constructs GPA-unresponsive, and suggests a role for Ae1 amino acids 22-28 in GPA responsiveness.
21119205 the GG genotype of the rs 1489759 HHIP single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and the CC genotype of the rs 2202507 GYPA SNP confers a ''protective'' effect on COPD (OR 0.59, p50.006 for HHIP and OR50.65, p50.006 for GYPA) and lung cancer.
