26900151 This conformational flexibility of human apo-CRBP1 facilitates interaction with the ligands, whereas the more rigid holoprotein structure protects the labile retinoid moiety during vitamin A transport.
25879031 Further studies are needed to explore new therapeutic strategies aimed at restoring CRBP-1-mediated intracellular retinol trafficking and the meaning of CRBP-1 expression in cancer patients screening for a more personalized and efficacy retinoid therapy
25720522 Hypermethylation of CRBP1 gene is associated with Epstein-Barr virus-associated gastric carcinomas.
25143356 RBP1 expression was reduced in tissue and endometrial stromal cells derived from endometritis lesions versus eutopic endometruim in humans and mice.
24982334 CRBP-1 loss in G2/G3 ovarian carcinomas and increased apoptotic susceptibility to retinoids.
24269351 Factors involved in the retinoid pathway, in particular upregulation of CRBP, CRABP1 and CRABP2, also showed differential expression in tumors with different histological subtypes
24040446 Suggest CRBP1 gene as a tumor suppressor gene for cervical cancer.
23890161 Functional hepatic stellate cells coexpressing both LRAT and CRBP-1, that continue to maintain the ability to store vitamin A, contribute in part to the development of portal and parenchymal fibrogenesis in patients with viral hepatitis.
23414180 High urine retinol binding protein is associated with interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy plus inflammation.
22945948 RBP1 promoter hypermethylation is found in nearly all IDH1 and IDH2 mutant gliomas Because RBP1 is involved in retinoic acid synthesis, results suggest that dysregltion of RA metabolism may contribute to glioma formation along the IDH1/IDH2-mutant pathway
