26884842 CCL21/CCR7 induce VEGF-D up-regulation and promote lymphangiogenesis via ERK/Akt pathway in lung cancer.
26667143 Our findings suggested that MUC1 plays an important role in CCL21-CCR7-induced lymphatic metastasis and may serve as a therapeutic target in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma .
26320593 CCL21 gene SNP (rs951005) might confer genetic predisposition to polymyositis patients or such patients with interstitial lung disease in a Chinese Han population.
26146068 over-expression of CCL21 could increased the expressions of antigen presentation-related genes in CK8/18 TECs in MG patients
25961925 TGF-beta1 promoted CCL21 expression in lymphatic endothelial cells. CCL21 acted in a paracrine fashion to mediate chemotactic migration of EMT cells toward lymphatic endothelial cells.
25957582 increased expression in mononuclear inflammatory cells isolated from the brain during active stage of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis
25744065 These results reveal that CCR7 and VEGF-C display a significant crosstalk and suggest a novel role of the CCL21/CCR7 chemokine axis in the promotion of breast cancer-induced lymphangiogenesis.
25688986 HIV-1 gp120 enhances CCL-21-induced CD4+ T cell chemotaxis in a CXCR4- and CD4-dependent manner
25575049 CCL21 promotes the metastasis of pancreatic cancer via epithelial-mesenchymal transition.
25556164 CCL21/CCR7 pathway activates signallings to up-regulate Slug pathway, leading to the occurrence of epithelial-mesenchymal transition process in human chondrosarcoma
