Frye et al, (19) found significant difference in 6 proteins associated with bipolar depression, mood disorders, and including unipolar, hemopexin (HPX), growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15), matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7), hepsin (HPN), transthyretin (TTR), and retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP-4).
In the GO network, seven genes (C-C motif chemokine ligand 1 [CCL1], CCL23, hemopexin, mucolipin 1, leucine zipper and EF-hand containing transmembrane protein 2, phospholipase A2 group VI [PLA2G6], and protein tyrosine phosphatase, receptor type, C [PTPRC]) were related to cellular metal ion homeostasis in seven major GO terms, and this cluster was the largest in this network.
