Gene RIF (21)

25062451 Activin A, B, and AB have similar effects on steroidogenesis in human granulosa cells; in contrast, activin AC is not biologically active and does not act as a competitive antagonist.
24599287 Serum inhibin levels correlate with clinical characteristics and mortality in epithelial ovarian cancer patients.
23580013 The inhibin-betaC subunit is down-regulated, while inhibin-betaE is up-regulated by interferon-beta1a in Ishikawa carcinoma cell line.
23284751 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in INHBC gene is associated with brain metastasis in non-small-cell lung cancer

21529351 Data show that inhibin A levels were significantly lower in the PCOS group compared to the control group, and inhibin B levels were comparable in the two groups.
21117833 inhibin-betaC in normal and pathological placental tissue was demonstrated, although no differences in staining intensity could be observed. Functional role of novel inhibin-betaC subunit in normal and pathological human placenta is still quite unclear.
21092084 differential expression pattern of the betaC- and betaE-subunits in normal human endometrial tissue suggests that they function in endometrial maturation and blastocyst implantation.

20884846 Meta-analysis and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20734064 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20683603 in endometrial cancer tissue demonstrated a significant association with hemangiosis although without any impact on the patients' survival
20458061 Expression of inhibin beta C was detected in the human chorionic carcinoma cell lines JEG and BeWoand also in human placenta.
20012305 Expression of the inhibin betaC and betaE subunits was demonstrated at the protein level and at the transcriptional level in normal human endometrial tissue and in the Ishikawa human endometrial carcinoma cell line.
19095948 activin-beta(C) is an antagonist of activin A
19064572 Observational study and meta-analysis of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18413775 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16627954 activin betaC subunit may exert its effect as inhibin C
12960042 Role for the activin betaC-subunit as a regulatory mechanism to reduce activin A secretion via intracellular heterodimerization.
12651901 Results quantify the relative expression of inhibin alpha, inhibin/activin beta(A), beta(B), beta(C), follistatin, activin receptors and beta-glycan genes in placental tissue of term pre-eclamptic patients.
