Disease relevance of TMEM47

  • 1. The hypothesis that mutations in the TM4SF10 gene are associated with impaired brain function was investigated by sequencing the gene in individuals with hereditary X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) [1].
  • Two hundred fifty-two previously untreated evaluable patients with multiple myeloma were entered into a study testing a regimen of three intravenous alkylating agents, melphalan, cyclophosphamide, and carmustine (BCNU), given in combination (BCMP) against a regimen employing oral melphalan (MP) [2].
  • Two new aromatic bis-(2-chloroethyl)-amino derivatives (BCMP and BAD) which are linked to osteotropic bisphosphonates were investigated for their therapeutical efficacy in rat osteosarcoma [3].

High impact information on TMEM47

  • However, when the survival of the poor-risk (high tumor cell load) group of patients treated with BCMP was compared with the survival of the poor-risk (high tumor cell load) group of patients treated with MP, an improvement in survival attributable to BCMP therapy was seen (p = 0.049 and 0.02, respectively) [2].
  • DNA-single strand breaks were induced by BCMP but not by BAD in liver cells and CO631 cell line [3].
  • Two of these changes correspond to previously known SNPs, while three other were novel SNPs in the TM4SF10 gene [1].
  • BACKGROUND: The TM4SF10 gene encodes a putative four-transmembrane domains protein of unknown function termed Brain Cell Membrane Protein 1 (BCMP1), and is abundantly expressed in the brain [1].
  • The comparison of penetration values for semen following swim-up suggests that this preparation may improve the correlation of BCMP with fertility [4].

Anatomical context of TMEM47

  • Following in vivo treatment BCMP was of higher genotoxic activity in liver cells than BAD [3].

Associations of TMEM47 with chemical compounds

  • Survival for the entire group of BCMP-treated patients was not significantly better than that for MP-treated patients (p = 0.62) [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of TMEM47

  • The higher therapeutic efficacy of BAD together with its lower genotoxic properties makes this compound superior to BCMP as a candidate for applied chemotherapy in humans [3].
  • In the 62 men with sperm counts of greater than 20 million/ml and motility of greater than 60%, 55 (89%) had adequate BCMP while adequate penetration was found in only eight of 24 (33%) with both sperm count and motility below these values (p less than 0.001) [4].
