26419808 These results identify the MCJ gene as a transcriptional target of IFNgamma and provide evidence of the dynamic adaptation of normal tissues to changes in the environment as a way to adapt metabolically to new conditions
26040030 Changes in the expression levels of IRS1, IRS2, RIPK2, RSPO1, and DNA JC15 genes might contribute to the development of insulin resistance and glucose intolerance in the obese boys.
24603329 Report functional connection between mitochondrial inner membrane protein translocation machinery-associated J-protein DnaJC15 and regulation of cell death pathways.
23263864 MCJ functions as J co-chaperone of the human TIM23 pre-protein translocase.
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18324624 Following transient expression of MDR-1 and MCJ, changes in the sensitivity of Sk-Ov-3 cells to paclitaxel were detected whereas expression of Src, Bcl-2 and Bcl-X(L) decreased the sensitivity of Sk-Ov-3 cells to carboplatin.
17283040 MCJ is required in these cells to prevent c-Jun-mediated expression of ABCB1 and maintain drug response.
16049974 evidence of MCJ hypermethylation in intracranial primitive neuroectodermal tumours (PNETs) (medulloblastomas, supratentorial PNETs & ependymomas); data indicate epigenetic inactivation of MCJ may play a role in development of pediatric brain tumours
14729589 loss of expression of MCJ by DNA methylation is associated with drug-resistance in ovarian cancer
