26962819 Gc1s/Gc1s phenotype variant of DBP and the unbound fraction of plasma RBP4 may be considered as factors related with the incidence, and possibly the risk, of IR in CHC patients.
26927700 RBP4 concentrations were significantly lower in hepatitis C subjects compared to controls.
26731992 Elevated serum RBP4 level is one of the important risk factors for both carotid artery plaque formation and CHD in Chinese
26619134 male mice are susceptible to high fat diet-induced hyperglycaemia and display higher plasma RBP4 levels, possibly due to its over-expression in visceral adipose depots
26575118 RBP-4 levels are higher in patients with clinical hypothyroidism and exhibit a marked decrease after normalization of thyroid function in both hyper and hypothyroid patients. We suggest that RBP-4 may play a role in the metabolic disturbances which accompany thyroid dysfunction.
26526443 This study describe the discovery and subsequent replications of RBP4 and its combination with circulating GFAP as plasmatic biomarkers for hyperacute stroke subtype differentiation.
26440092 Genetic variants of retinol-binding protein 4 in adolescents are associated with liver function and inflammatory markers but not with obesity and insulin resistance
26425827 RBP correlated with IgG4 and IgA. RBP also correlated positively with age and with influenza virus-specific antibody neutralization titres.
26178727 Data suggest that RBP4 saturated with retinol, elevated carotenoids (hypercarotenemia), and elevated retinyl esters can be used as biological markers in serum of excessive stores of vitamin A in liver of preschool children with hypervitaminosis A.
26069091 Fasting concentrations of RBP-4 were negatively correlated with BMI and waist-hip ratio, whereas lipocalin-2 levels were positively associated with BMI and waist-hip ratio.
