26560363 ISCU expression was decreased in the majority of human liver cancer tissues, and its reduced expression was significantly associated with p53 mutation.
26016389 The core Fe-S biosynthetic enzymatic complex generated [2Fe-2S] cluster intermediates that converted to stable [2Fe-2S] clusters bound to uncomplexed ISCU2.
25825391 Thus, driven by acquired (hypoxia) or genetic causes, the miR-210-ISCU1/2 regulatory axis is a pathogenic lynchpin causing iron-sulfur deficiency and pulmonary hypertension.
25204651 IscU is a new substrate of MK2 both in Drosophila cells and in human cells
24971490 Fe-S assembly protein (ISCU2) and frataxin convert substrates l-cysteine, ferrous iron, and electrons into Fe-S clusters.
24573684 the G50E iron-sulfur cluster scaffold protein (ISCU) mutation has a role in mitochondrial myopathy
23940031 NFS1 binds preferentially to the D-state of ISCU while mtHSP70 binds preferentially to the D-state of ISCU and HSC20 binds preferentially to the S-state of ISCU.
23508953 mTORC1 associates with ISCU and phosphorylates ISCU at serine 14. This phosphorylation stabilized ISCU protein.
23449350 MicroRNA-210 correlates negatively with its gene target ISCU at the protein and mRNA level. MicroRNA-210 correlated with positive outcome variables
23035118 ISCU protein deficiency in patients results from muscle-specific mis-splicing and oxidative stress.
