Resumen

La familia de genes de las lipocalinas (LCN) está compuesta por varios miembros que comparten una estructura común y que se han duplicado en forma repetida durante la evolución expandiéndose a más de 150 genes conocidos, de ellos al menos veinte reportados en la especie humana. El grupo de proteínas de las LCN está constituido por varios elementos que comparten la propiedad común de unión de ligandos lipofílicos. Las LCN funcionan en un amplio rango de sistemas incluyendo quimiorrecepción y transporte en fisiología sensorial del gusto y odor, coloración, modulación hemato-inmune, síntesis de prostanglandina D2, neuro-fisiología, fisiología reproductiva y fertilidad, embriogénesis, proliferación y división celular, supervivencia y apoptosis celular. Es evidente su rol en patobiología y bioclínica reproductiva y de la fertilidad al observar que varias LCN tienen niveles alterados de expresión en diferentes eventos patofisiológicos. Esta revisión resume hallazgos e implicaciones. Abreviaturas: LCN, lipocalinas; Gd, glicodelinas; kDa, kilodalton.
