26829325 apoD protein levels are variable across different brain regions.
26083030 hepatic steatosis observed in apoD Tg mice is a consequence of increased PPARgamma transcriptional activity by AA leading to increased fatty acid uptake by the liver
25953740 The data suggest that the presence of Apo D in the nucleus, which some authors related with a specific transport, is a consequence of structural and functional alterations during oxidative stress
25918162 The internalization of apoD is mediated by basigin.
25513803 apoD mediates binding of high density lipoprotein to low density lipoprotein and to growing T24 carcinomas, thereby highlighting the importance of apoD in lipid metabolism.
25261976 The SNP rs7659 within the APOD gene might be related to risk and severity of ischemic stroke in patients.
24167586 We propose that strong brainstem expression of Apo D throughout adult life contributes to resistance against neurodegenerative disease and age-related degeneration, possibly by preventing oxidative stress and ensuing lipid peroxidation.
23895740 ApoD mRNA expression is seen in whole endometrium, stromal and epithelial cells in the secretory phase, as well as after hormonal stimulation in vitro.
23777559 Data suggest that ApoD binds various lyophilic ligands: retinoic acid, retinol, fatty acids, sphingomyelin, and anandamide. ApoD successfully delivers retinoic acid to immature neuronal cell line resulting in neurogenesis (i.e., neurite formation).
23715769 ApoE is located in the nucleus and on the ApoD promoter in human hepatic and glioblastoma cells lines.
