Molecular Analysis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Clinically Useful Tools for Diagnosis, Response Prediction, and Monitoring of Targeted Therapy.
Baltimore, United States. In Mol Diagn Ther, Jun 2015
Fecal biomarkers, which have recently attracted substantial attention, are also discussed extensively, including the well-characterized calprotectin and lactoferrin, as well as the recently characterized M2-PK, CHI3L1, neopterin, MMP-9, and HMGB1.

Fecal calprotectin, which indicates intestinal bleeding or inflammation of the colon mucosa, and fecal tumor M2-PK, which is produced by cancer cells, have been extensively investigated as fecal protein biomarkers.
Cell-state-specific metabolic dependency in hematopoiesis and leukemogenesis.
Boston, United States. In Cell, 2014
We find that a deficiency in the M2 pyruvate kinase isoform (PKM2) reduces the levels of metabolic intermediates important for biosynthesis and impairs progenitor function without perturbing hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), whereas lactate dehydrogenase A (LDHA) deletion significantly inhibits the function of both HSCs and progenitors during hematopoiesis.
