26781569 HMOX2 contributes to high-altitude adaptation in Tibetans by functioning as a modifier in the regulation of hemoglobin metabolism.
26652036 The same mechanism of heme hydroxylation to alpha-meso-hydroxyheme is employed by both isoforms HO-1 and HO-2.
26091465 a weak association between HMOX2 rs1051308 polymorphisms and the risk to develop essential tremor in the Spanish population.
25864768 HO-2 protein is expressed in the cytosols of skin cancer cells.
25849895 Taken together with EPR measurements, which show the appearance of a new low-spin heme signal in reduced HO2, it appears that a cysteine residue(s) in the HRMs directly interacts with a second bound heme
25196843 Interactions of HO-2 with CPR and BVR, were evaluated.
23792437 We believe that a dysfunctional HO-ferritin system leads to increased levels of proinflammatory mediators, thus contributing to the inflammation characteristic of pterygia.
22935040 increased expression of nucleated RBC, HSP90alpha and corresponding decreased expression of HO-2 in such hypoxic condition may play a protective role; to prevent cord blood RBC against stress induced damage during preeclampsia.
22923613 Role of cysteine residues in heme binding to human heme oxygenase-2 elucidated by two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy.
22892400 PFKFB4 and HO-2 are expressed in a coordinated manner to maintain glucose homeostasis.
