26033490 These findings provide new insights into the acetylcholine receptor-mediated regulatory mechanism of SLURP-2 expression in keratinocytes.
26025503 These studies suggest that lynx1 is a potential target both for development of drugs that may limit lung cancer growth as well as for drugs that may be effective for asthma or COPD treatment.
25571874 This epigenome-wide DNA methylation analysis in postmortem hippocampus and prefrontal cortex specimens confirmed LYNX1 DNA methylation profiles in major depression.
24877120 SLURP-2 downregulated TNFalpha and IFNgamma R in T-cells and reduced IL-6 production by macrophage
23585571 Micromolar affinities and fast washout rates measured for ws-LYNX1 and its mutants are in contrast to nanomolar affinities and irreversibility of binding for alpha-bungarotoxin and similar snake alpha-neurotoxins also targeting alpha7 nAChR.
21252236 Computer modeling, based on ws-LYNX1 NMR structure and AChBP x-ray structure, revealed a possible mode of ws-LYNX1 binding.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19639180 LY-6K meaningfully participates in breast cancer cell metastasis
18559515 decreased Lynx1 is associated with squamous cell lung carcinoma
17643396 anti-tumorigenic activities of SLURP-1 and -2 were demonstrated both in vitro and in vivo.
17089039 LY-6K,a novel member protein of the Ly-6/uPAR superfamily, is a significant new molecular marker for diagnosis and gene therapy in patients with breast cancer.
16575903 These results indicated that SLURP-2 competes with acetylcholine predominantly at the alpha3 nAChR, and that receptor ligation with SLURP-2 delays keratinocyte differentiation and prevents apoptosis.
12573258 Up-regulated in psoriasis vulgaris.
