Gene RIF (2)

18410445 All members of the human opiorphin family of genes can potentially modulate erectile physiology. Both hSMR3 and ProL1 are down-regulated in the corpora of men with ED, and therefore both genes can potentially act as markers of ED.
17101991 Results report the discovery of opiorphin, a previously uncharacterized physiological inhibitor of enkephalin-inactivating zinc ectopeptidases in humans.
