Gene RIF (11)

25945974 PAFAH1B2 and 1B3 are important in maintaining cancer pathogenicity across a wide spectrum of cancer types.
25034894 The R92H and I198T polymorphisms are highly related to the plasma PAF-AH levels and the risk of coronary heart disease, especially among patients with blood stasis syndrome.
23508960 aspirin is hydrolyzed in plasma by two enzymes, BChE and a new extracellular form of platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase, PAFAH1b2.
23238734 Knockdown of PAFAH1B2 strongly reduced Abeta secretion from human cells, and this effect was confirmed in primary cells derived from PAFAH1B2 knock-out mice
21866060 Plasma PAF-AH can hydrolyze oxidized phospholipids, and may attenuate the spreading of lipid peroxidation and participate in defense mechanisms against vasospasm after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.
21844189 intracellular type I PAF acetylhydrolase (PAFAH1B2 and PAFAH1B3) is the major aspirin hydrolase of human blood
19622634 These results indicate an antagonistic effect of alpha1, alpha2 and Ndel1 for Lis1 binding, probably to modulate dynein functions in vivo.
19019335 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18155631 splice variants of the Pafah1b2 gene transcript retain exons 1-5 and replace exon 6 with alternative exons derived from genomic sequence 3' to exon 6. Splice variants encode two proteins with different novel carboxy termini
17849047 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17849047 PAFAH1B2 is not the gene responsible for the linkage evidence on chromosome 11q23 in protein C deficiency.
