High impact information on BBX

  • The negative control polymers showed little to no initial cell attachment, and the addition of soluble heparin to the medium reduced initial cell adhesion on both the HBP2 and HBP2:RGD surfaces [1].
  • The relationship of WZF1 and HBP-2 and the possible role of WZF1 in the histone gene expression were discussed [2].
  • These tick proteins have been assigned to the tick lipocalin family based on database searches that indicated homology between tick sequences and the fact that the histamine binding protein (HBP2) from the hard tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus (Ixodidae) shows structural similarity to the lipocalin fold [3].
  • The mammalian HBP2 gene has been isolated by functional complementation of cells unable to undergo DNA replication in fission yeast [4].
  • This review examines the clinical experience from the MDS-001 and MDS-003 clinical trials that led to this approval, the results of biological correlates supporting the targets of drug action, and the results from a non-del(5q) multicenter study (MDS-002) [5].
