Host Protein Biomarkers Identify Active Tuberculosis in HIV Uninfected and Co-infected Individuals.
United States. In Ebiomedicine, Sep 2015
Biomarker panels whose composition differed according to HIV status, and consisted of 8 host proteins in HIV(-) individuals (CD14, SEPP1, SELL, TNXB, LUM, PEPD, QSOX1, COMP, APOC1), or 10 host proteins in HIV(+) individuals (CD14, SEPP1, PGLYRP2, PFN1, VASN, CPN2, TAGLN2, IGFBP6), respectively, distinguished TB from ORD with excellent accuracy (AUC = 0.96 for HIV(-) TB, 0.95 for HIV(+) TB).
Functions of lumican and fibromodulin: lessons from knockout mice.
Baltimore, United States. In Glycoconj J, 2002
The phenotypes of lumican-null (Lum(-/-)), Fibromodulin-null (Fmod(-/-)) and compound double-null (Lum(-/-)Fmod(-/-)) mice identify a broad range of tissues where these two proteoglycans have overlapping and unique roles in modulating the extracellular matrix and cellular behavior.
