High impact information on LOC152586

  • The shared haplotype harbored two functionally uncharacterized genes, ELMOD2 and LOC152586, of which only ELMOD2 was expressed in lung and showed significantly decreased messenger-RNA expression in IPF lung (n = 6) when compared with that of healthy lung (n = 7; P = .05) [1].


  1. ELMOD2 is a candidate gene for familial idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Hodgson, U., Pulkkinen, V., Dixon, M., Peyrard-Janvid, M., Rehn, M., Lahermo, P., Ollikainen, V., Salmenkivi, K., Kinnula, V., Kere, J., Tukiainen, P., Laitinen, T. Am. J. Hum. Genet. (2006) [Pubmed]
