22469982 Lefty A may account for the tumor suppressive activity of human adult stem cells.
21401636 Findings show that during embryonic development, EBAF/LEFTY B plays important roles in decidualization and embryo implantation.
21266536 Findings suggest that Lefty2 is negatively modulated by miR-302s in hESCs, which plays an important role in maintaining the balance between pluripotency and germ layer specification.
