The buttons at right link to annotated references covering the indicated period.
"1994-1997" covers the period establishing search for the identity of circulating DPPIV activity, a search that led to the discovery of attractin.
"1998-2000" covers the period of molecular and biochemical characterization of attractin, establishing attractin's identity as an ortholog of mouse mahogany, identifying how alternate splicing gives rise to transmembrane and secreted forms of attractin, and the formal demonstration that circulating attractin was not a source of circulating DPPIV activity.
"2001 - 2002" moves the field firmly away from CD26/DPPIV and focuses heavily upon the neuropathologies of the various animal models harboring mutations at the Atrn locus.
The link to the "2003 - " page begins completes the move away from DPPIV/CD26 and begins to address functions and interactions of attractin and related family members.
