26718887 Data indicate that cathepsin D (CD) protein is elevated in the retinas of diabetic mice and serum of human patients with diabetic macular edema (DME).
26519755 study provides evidence that hTERT overexpression is responsible for the upregulation of the cysteine protease cathepsin D by regulating EGR-1 to activate invasiveness in cancer progression
26507101 Fibroblasts from Niemann-Pick type C (NPC) disease patients with low levels of NPC1 protein have high amounts of procathepsin D but reduced quantities of the mature protein, thus showing a diminished cathepsin D activity.
26448324 Transcellular transmission of alpha-synuclein aggregates is increased in CTSD mutated cells.
26351775 Variations in CTSD and MnSOD showed no association with the development of Alzheimer's Disease, whereas the presence of the Ala224Val polymorphism in CTSD had a positive association with the development of AD
26344002 Fenhexamid and cyprodinil can promote ovarian cancer metastasis by increasing the protein expression of cathepsin D via an estrogen receptor dependent pathway.
26203049 A proteomics workflow identified CTSD as an over-expressed protein in osteosarcomas and pulmonary metastases and may thus serve as a new biomarker for individualized treatment regimes for patients with osteosarcomas, even at metastastic stage.
26183398 Data show that co-silencing of tricho-rhino-phalangeal-syndrome (TRPS1) and cathepsin D (Cath-D) in breast cancer cells (BCC) affects the transcription of cell cycle and proliferation.
26086961 the clues provided by the yeast model unveiled a novel CatD function in the degradation of damaged mitochondria when autophagy is impaired, which protects colorectal cancer cells from acetate-induced apoptosis.
26018151 Human Herpesvirus 8-encoded viral interleukin-6 promotes endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation of procathepsin D.
