26173510 These findings confirm that, mechanistically, ketimine reductase/CRYM acts as a classical imine reductase and may explain the finding of bound pyruvate in the crystallized protein.
25931162 ketimine reductase is a key enzyme in the pipecolate pathway, which is the main lysine degradation pathway in the brain
23508717 The expression of mu-crystallin was regulated through the AP-1 site in the promoter.
21332720 The purified human mu-crystallin was confirmed to have ketimine reductase activity with a maximum specific activity similar to that of native ovine ketimine reductase
21332720 Its ketimine reductase activity is strongly inhibited by thyroid hormones.
21332720 Its enzyme function has been determined as a ketimine reductase in mammalian brain.
20471030 This protein has been found differentially expressed in thalami from patients with schizophrenia.
20018174 This is the first report linking hyperglycemia with thyroid hormone binding protein CRYM and suggests that the role of CRYM in diabetic complications should be further investigated.
19353593 CRYM is a novel androgen-regulated gene whose expression is elevated in prostate cancer but down-regulated in castration therapy-resistant tumors.
19165527 Using shotgun mass spectrometry, we found this protein differentially expressed in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex from patients with schizophrenia.
