26427715 The MSX2 controls mesendoderm lineage commitment by simultaneous suppression of SOX2 and induction of NODAL expression through direct binding and activation of the Nodal promoter.
26358078 Low expressions of NODAL is associated with lymph node metastasis in colorectal cancer.
26289399 Nodal is expressed in in male germ cells but not in Sertoli cells, whereas its receptors were detected in both, suggesting that NODAL plays a regulatory role in Sertoli cells and germ cells via a paracrine and autocrine pathway, respectively.
26226633 During a maturation phase, a fast acting NODAL loop stimulates its own activity and temporarily inhibits BMP signaling. During the stabilization phase, a slow acting NODAL loop, involving WNTs re-establishes BMP signaling and the pluripotency circuitry.
25766327 we found that Kl treatment impairs Nodal mRNA expression and Fgf9-mediated Nanos2 induction, reinforcing the antagonistic effect of these two growth factors on the meiotic fate of male germ cells
25708930 Nodal expression marks a subtype of human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma with unfavorable prognosis
25672326 The expression of lefty in RCC cells was lower than that in adjacent non-tumor cells, which may result in the overexpression of nodal, thereby promoting the growth of RCC.
25670856 Inhibition of activin/nodal signaling leads to formation of extravillous trophoblast, whereas loss of activin/nodal inhibition leads to the formation of syncytiotrophoblasts
25603319 our studies provide mechanistic insights into Nodal signaling and Nodal inhibition with Cerberus and highlight the potential value of Cerberus as anti-Nodal therapeutic.
25557170 Nodal induces signal transduction through the Smad2/3-dependent pathway in vitro. Results that Nodal promotes pancreatic cancer cell migration and invasion and induces epithelial-mesenchymal transition.
