26170148 Neuronal CAP37 may modulate the neuroinflammatory response in Alzheimer disease.
25412625 identified a multifunctional bioactive peptide, based on CAP37, that induces cell migration, possesses antibacterial and LPS-binding activity, and is effective at healing infected and noninfected corneal wounds in vivo.
23883488 Plasma levels of heparin-binding protein were significantly higher in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome.
23808364 Low levels of azurocidin in maternal serum in the first trimester were associated with subsequent preterm prelabor rupture of membranes.
22278372 AZU1 exhibited high affinity binding to PTX3 in a calcium ion-dependent manner
22207392 Heparin-binding protein is elevated in patients with shock from septic and non-septic etiologies.
20399025 Proliferating bile ductules may play a role in the inflammatory response in biliary atresia through expression of CAP37.
20107486 group A streptococci induce contact activation and HBP release during skin infection, which likely contribute to the symptoms seen in erysipelas: fever, pain, erythema, and edema
20083497 The TAASC motif in a cyclizised 20-44 amino acid peptide is part of the ligand in HBP responsible for activation of the HBP receptor on monocytes. Monocytes release HBP constitutively in small amounts and more so in the presence of lipopolysaccharide.
20056178 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
