Dynamics of lipid transfer by phosphatidylinositol transfer proteins in cells.
London, United Kingdom. In Traffic, 2008
Among these, phosphatidylinositol transfer proteins (PITP) are of particular interest as they can bind to and transfer phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns)--the precursor of important signalling molecules, phosphoinositides--and because they have essential functions in neuronal development (PITPalpha) and cytokinesis (PITPbeta).

Further analysis of 14 protein spots identified 12 proteins expressing in SRINS, namely kinesin family member 27, PITPNB, bullous pemphigoid antigen, alpha-1 protease inhibitor, Zn-alpha-2GP, alpha-1B-glycoprotein, serum albumin precursor, haptoglobin precursor, kinesin like motor protein, IRAK4, cytoplasmic dynein and cytokeratin 9. Nine of these 12 proteins were up-regulated (U1-U3, U5, U7-U9, U11-U12) and 3 down-regulated (D4, D6, D10) in SRINS, suggesting that these proteins may serve as the potential therapeutic targets and as new diagnostic markers for steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome.
