Disease relevance of C10orf97


High impact information on C10orf97

  • We found no significant correlations between the RAST levels against Derp 2 and either Derp 5 or 7, and RAST-inhibition tests indicated a lack of cross-reactivity between Der p 2 and the other two allergens [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of C10orf97

  • Protein sequence analysis revealed that Arpp is homologous (52.7% identity) to Carp which is shown to be involved in the regulation of the transcription of the cardiac ventricular myosin light chain 2 gene [3].
