The hand eczema proteome: imbalance of epidermal barrier proteins.
München, Germany. In Br J Dermatol, Apr 2015
Among them we found several barrier proteins: filaggrin (FLG), FLG-2 and hornerin were all downregulated in the hand eczema samples, as were the desquamation-related enzymes kallikrein-related peptidase (KLK)5 and KLK7 and cystatin E/M.

Changsha, China. In Breast Cancer Res Treat, Feb 2015
These 13 genes included CST6, DBC1, EGFR, GREM1, GSTP1, IGFBP3, PDGFRB, PPM1E, SFRP1, SFRP2, SOX17, TNFRSF10D, and WRN.
Development of highly sensitive and specific mRNA multiplex system (XCYR1) for forensic human body fluids and tissues identification.
Shanghai, China. In Plos One, 2013
In this study, we selected 16 tissue specific biomarkers to evaluate their specificities and sensitivities for human body fluids and tissues identification, including porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD), hemoglobin beta (HBB) and Glycophorin A (GLY) for circulatory blood, protamine 2 (PRM2) and transglutaminase 4 (TGM4) for semen, mucin 4 (MUC4) and human beta defensin 1(HBD1) for vaginal secretion, matrix metalloproteinases 7 and 11 (MMP7 and MMP11) for menstrual blood, keratin 4(KRT4) for oral mucosa, loricrin (LOR) and cystatin 6 (CST6) for skin, histatin 3(HTN3) for saliva, statherin (STATH) for nasal secretion, dermcidin (DCD) for sweat and uromodulin (UMOD) for urine.
Epigenetic regulation of cystatins in cancer.
Chapel Hill, United States. In Front Biosci, 2008
Four cystatins have been extensively studied: cystatin A, cystatin B, cystatin C, and cystatin M. Aberrant regulation of cystatins occurs in a number of diseases, including cancer and certain neurodegenerative disorders.
