Disease relevance of Mipep

 

High impact information on Mipep

  • The first is to a sequence encoding a putative MIP homologue in the recently reported sequence of yeast chromosome III [2].
  • Additional studies on cell contraction and intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) revealed that both UP and MIP attenuated the inhibitory effects of severe MI on contractility and electrically induced [Ca2+]i transient in single ventricular myocytes [3].
  • With the use of trypan blue exclusion as an index of cell viability, severe MI killed >60% of the cells and the value increased significantly after MIP [3].
  • Water and glycerol permeabilities of aquaporins 1-5 and MIP determined quantitatively by expression of epitope-tagged constructs in Xenopus oocytes [4].
  • Mammalian mitochondrial intermediate peptidase: structure/function analysis of a new homologue from Schizophyllum commune and relationship to thimet oligopeptidases [5].
 

Biological context of Mipep

  • In this study we have investigated how the profiles of the two most abundant fibre cell membrane proteins AQP0 (formerly known as Major Intrinsic Protein, MIP) and MP20 change as a function of fibre cell differentiation [6].
  • In the isolated frog sciatic nerve preparation, IC50 concentrations for nerve block were 0.34 +/- 0.9 mM for lidocaine (LIDO), 0.62 +/- 0.11 mM for procaine, 11.9 +/- 6.1 mM for disopyramide (DIP), and 52.8 +/- 24 mM for MIP (the mono-demethylated metabolite of DIP) [7].
  • PMN were then assayed using DHR for respiratory burst (RB) initiated by sequential MIP-2 and PAF stimulation (MIP/PAF) [8].
 

Anatomical context of Mipep

  • The intracytoplasmatic lipid microvacuoles were quantified in hepatocytes with an image analyzer (software MIP/CID, Spain) [9].
 

Associations of Mipep with chemical compounds

  • The goal of this study was to compare single channel water and glycerol permeabilities of mammalian aquaporins (AQP) 1-5 and the major intrinsic protein of lens fiber (MIP) [4].
  • However, when myocytes were subjected for 30 min to either 20 mM lactate and 10 mM 2-deoxy-d-glucose (MIP) or 30 microM U50,488H (UP) 20 h before MI/A, the changes in viability and injury, and [Ca(2+)](i) responses were significantly attenuated [10].
