Gene RIF (9)

21545747 HIV-1 virus transfer among primary CD4+ T-lymphocytes was promoted by ectopic ps20 expression or by exogenous addition of recombinant ps20.
20090771 Observational study and meta-analysis of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19488830 suggests that the tumor suppressive function of WFDC1 may be partially a result of up-regulated Dkk1 gene expression, which is known to be a potent inhibitor of the Wnt signaling pathway
19460752 Knockdown of WAP four-disulfide core domain 1 (WFDC1) by shRNA library screening inhibits HIV-1 replication in cultured Jurkat T-cells
18842679 data suggest an important role for WFDC1 in inhibiting proliferation of both tumors and senescent cells. Finally, we suggest that the downregulation of WFDC1 might serve as a biomarker for cellular transformation
18842679 our data suggest an important role for WFDC1 in inhibiting proliferation of both tumors and senescent cells
17942534 ps20 promoted HIV entry via fusion and augmented CD54 integrin expression
15305342 WFDC1/ps20 is down regulated but not frequently mutated in prostate cancer. It is expressed predominantly in the normal prostatic stroma. It might play a role in the maintenance of the normal extra cellular matrix milieu in the prostate.
12032731 results suggest a minor role, if any, of WFDC1 in hepatocarcinogenesis
