Disease relevance of IPO9

  • A novel plasmid-mediated metallo-beta-lactamase (IMP-9) is described in seven isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from Guangzhou, China, isolated in 2000 [1].

High impact information on IPO9

  • The importin 9 gene contains 24 exons in a genomic region spanning >52,000 bp [2].
  • Five monoclonal antibodies that recognize porcine brain myo-inositol monophosphate phosphatase (IMPase) have been selected and designated as mAb IMPP 9, IMPP 10, IMPP 11, IMPP 15, and IMPP 17 [3].
