High impact information on LRRC15

  • The chimeric protein binds in vitro and in vivo to a specific element upstream of LRRC15, leading to dramatic transcriptional activation [1].
  • Here, we used cDNA subtractive hybridization to identify an endogenous gene, LRRC15, which is specifically up-regulated after inducible expression of EWS-WT1(+KTS) in cancer cell lines, and is expressed within primary DSRCT cells [1].
  • A polymorphic dinucleotide repeat probe on chromosome 3p: LIB 44-36ca (D3S769) [2].
  • In this study, the carbohydrate portions of Dol-PP-OS were analysed: in JB and LIB, they range in size from Man2GlcNAc2 to Glc3Man9GlcNAc2, predominant components being Man5-7GlcNAc2 and Glc3Man7GlcNAc2 [3].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of LRRC15

  • PANTHER/LIB is a collection of "books," each representing a protein family as a multiple sequence alignment, a Hidden Markov Model (HMM), and a family tree [4].
  • The immunoassay system is based on the transient retention of the specific LIB-MC2 monoclonal antibody anti-TCP as a biotinylated derivative using the streptavidin-biotin interaction [5].
