High impact information on KIAA0368

  • The antibodies show that Ecm29 is present exclusively on 26 S proteasomes in HeLa cells and that Ecm29 levels vary markedly among mouse organs [1].
  • Ecm29 is up-regulated 2-3-fold in toxinresistant mutant CHO cells exhibiting increased rates of ER-associated degradation [1].
  • These observations lead us to speculate on how PA200 and Ecm29 may associate with proteasomes [2].
  • Results identified adipose differentiation-related protein (ADRP) as up-regulated by both irritant and allergen, and KIAA0368 as selectively up-regulated by contact allergen [3].
