Gene RIF (6)

21833011 Thrombomodulin and RHBDL2 are upregulated in human HaCaT cells stimulated by scratch wounds; furthermore, increased solulbe thrombomodulin was found in culture medium.
21494248 RHBDL2 cleaves epidermal growth factor just outside its transmembrane domain, thereby facilitating its secretion and triggering activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor.
20080650 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19850051 Here, the authors show that RHBDL2 is produced as a proenzyme and that the processing of RHBDL2 is required for its cellular protease activity.
15047175 The encoded protein is thought to release soluble growth factors by proteolytic cleavage of certain membrane-bound substrates, including ephrin B2 and ephrin B3.
12820957 Substrate specificity of RHBDL2 intramembrane protease is governed by helix-breaking residues in the transmembrane domain.
