Serum lysosomal-associated membrane protein-2 levels are increased in small and medium vessel vasculitis, especially in polyarteritis nodosa.

Lysosomal-associated membrane protein-2 (LAMP-2) is a highly glycosylated type I glycoprotein ex- pressed on the membranes of neutrophils, endothelial cells and other cells, which are closely linked t...

Serum levels and gene expression of pentraxin 3 are elevated in COPD.

Pentraxin 3 (PTX-3) is an acute phase protein that belongs to the pentraxin superfamily. It is synthesized locally at the site of inflammation and its levels are related to the damage of blood vessels...

Study on Serum Pentraxin-3 Levels in Vasculitis with Hypertension.

Pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) is derived from the secretion of macrophages, neutrophils, endothelial cells, epithelial cells, and vascular smooth muscle cells, which can regulate the immune activity of macropha...

Lysosomal diseases: Overview on current diagnosis and treatment.

Lysosomal diseases (LDs), also known as lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs), are a heterogeneous group of conditions caused by defects in lysosomal function. LDs may result from deficiency of lysosomal ...

The serum level of a novel lipogenic protein Spot 14 was reduced in metabolic syndrome.

Spot 14 (S14) protein is primarily expressed in adipogenic tissues. Compared to wild type, S14 knockout mice had better resistance to diet-induced obesity and glucose tolerance. However, the associati...

A Potential Novel Marker for Liver Fibrosis in Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis: the Soluble Secreted Form of the Human Asialoglycoprotein Receptor

Soluble secreted proteins that are expressed uniquely in specific organs and whose formation of secretion is regulated by disease states are excellent markers for the disease. This is beca...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An abundant lysosomal-associated membrane protein that has been found to shuttle between LYSOSOMES; ENDOSOMES; and the PLASMA MEMBRANE. Loss of expression of lysosomal-associated membrane protein 2 is associated with GLYCOGEN STORAGE DISEASE TYPE IIB.

An abundant lysosomal-associated membrane protein that has been found to shuttle between LYSOSOMES; ENDOSOMES; and the PLASMA MEMBRANE. In PLATELETS and T-LYMPHOCYTES it may play a role in the cellular degranulation process.

A lysosomal-associated membrane glycoprotein that is expressed at high levels in mature DENDRITIC CELLS.

A metabolic disease characterized by the defective transport of CYSTINE across the lysosomal membrane due to mutation of a membrane protein cystinosin. This results in cystine accumulation and crystallization in the cells causing widespread tissue damage. In the KIDNEY, nephropathic cystinosis is a common cause of RENAL FANCONI SYNDROME.

Immune complex disease caused by the administration of foreign serum or serum proteins and characterized by fever, lymphadenopathy, arthralgia, and urticaria. When they are complexed to protein carriers, some drugs can also cause serum sickness when they act as haptens inducing antibody responses.
