24693993 Tmem27 is present in human serum and its levels are significantly lower in subjects with autoimmune diabetes as compared to healthy individuals.
22628310 Tmem27 dimerization is a dynamic process involving Bace2
21907142 Bace2 specifically targets Tmem27 and cleaves its extracellular domain, which is then shed from the plasma membrane of pancreatic beta cells.
21814048 Collectrin and ACE2 in renal and intestinal amino acid transport.
20386877 Data support a role for TMEM27 in glucose-induced insulin secretion but not in cell proliferation. The finding that its cleavage is not specific to beta cells challenges the current support for its use as a potential beta cell mass biomarker.
19582483 No TMEM27 gene mutations were discovered among 26 patients showing a phenotype resembling Dent's disease
19417552 the first human study of the gene TMEM27 and an attempt to shine a light on genotype-phenotype correlation in Turner syndrome patients.
17693757 Collectrin has a role in amino acid transpor in the kidney [review]
