25971300 Results show that FGL2 functions as a key immune-suppressive modulator and has potential as an immunotherapeutic target for treating glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).
25496996 these results suggest that FGL-2 mediates angiogenesis and tumorigenesis not by thrombin-mediated mechanism but rather through FGF-2/ERK signaling pathway.
25303152 FGL-2 prothrombinase activity in PBMC of lymphoma patients is increased in active disease and normalizes during remission, thus being a potential marker for follow up of lymphoma patients.
25129313 Studied fibrinogen-like protein 2 expression and its role in CRC metastasis and underlying molecular mechanisms; results suggest that FGL2 plays an important oncogenic role in CRC aggressiveness by inducing EMT.
24728278 The selected peptide sequence NPG-12 may be a critical domain for hfgl2 prothrombinase activity.

22983266 Circulating fibrinogen-like protein 2 is increased in patients with systemic sclerosis.
22925132 FGL2 contributes to hepatocellular carcinoma tumour growth and angiogenesis in a thrombin-dependent manner, and downregulation of its expression might be of therapeutic significance in HCC.
22886967 The proliferation index of CD8(+)T cells after blocking FGL2 was higher.
22082274 HBV surface antigen-induced transcription of hfgl2 prothrombinase gene.
20438701 FGL2 plays an important role in macrophage activation in the lungs of COPD patients through MAPK pathway modulation.
19590927 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19423547 SARS-CoV N protein specifically modulates transcription of the FGL2 gene to cause fibrosis and vascular thrombosis.
18932275 Human fg12 contributes to the hypercoagulability in cancer and may induce tumor angiogenesis and metastasis via cytokine induction.
18801734 Hepatitis B virus-induced hFGL2 transcription is dependent on c-Ets-2 and MAPK signal pathway
18390877 fgl2 gene transcription induced by the N protein of SARS-CoV was dependent on transcription factor C/EBP alpha binding with its cognate cis-element in fgl2 promoter.
16437596 Results suggest that virus-induced fibrinogen-like protein 2 prothrombinase/fibroleukin expression and associated coagulation activity play a pivotal role in initiating severe hepatitis.
15905589 FGL2 expression may be critical to the pathogenesis of renal allograft rejection; these data provide a rationale for targeting the fgl2 gene in an attempt to modulate allograft rejection.
