26487699 It was concluded that the lipid-binding groove in ZA2G contains at least two distinct fatty acid-binding sites.
26383228 reduced AZGP1 expression is strongly related to adverse prostate cancer prognosis, independently of established clinic-pathological variables and PTEN deletions.
26068931 Zinc-alpha2-glycoprotein inhibits insulin-induced glucose uptake in human adipocytes by impairing insulin signaling at the level of AKT in a PP2A-dependent manner.
25788525 AZGP1 is a negative regulator of fibrosis progression in kidney and heart
25708842 Plasma ZAG was elevated in smokers, and correlated with male gender, smoking amount and duration, nicotine dependence, and metabolic syndrome.
25580089 we demonstrated a significant increase in ZAG in critically ill patients temporally related to recovery from sepsis
25561225 comprehensive evaluation of AZGP1 variation at the mRNA and protein level in colon cancer; study demonstrated that AZGP1 is a potential serum marker of colon cancer that may be correlated with tumorigenesis
25427682 Increased serum ZAG concentrations induced, at least partly, by Sp1 may cause an increase in vascular tone through the activation of RhoA
25076420 ZAG protein accumulates in plasma in ESRD and hemodialysis patients but this increase is not directly correlated to the decrease in GFR.
24918753 overexpression of AZGP1 suppressed the activation of the mTOR pathway and endogenous FASN-regulated fatty acid synthesis, mitigating the malignant phenotype of LoVo cells
