27015306 Through expression of the WNT inhibitor DKK1, latency competent cancer cells self-impose a slow-cycling state with broad downregulation of ULBP ligands for NK cells and evasion of NK-cell-mediated clearance.
26986465 AFP remained the best single marker, and the combined use of AFP with prothrombin precursor or DKK-1 had the best diagnostic performance compared to all other possible combinations of the four biomarkers, even in early stage hepatocellular carcinoma.
26927559 Data indicate that in rheumatoid arthritis patients, level of receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB ligand (RANKL) on T cells is elevated, and the serum level of RANKL increases, but Dickkopf1 protein (DKK1) decreases.
26782930 Synovial fibroblasts from patients with very early rheumatoid arthritis expressed significantly higher levels of DKK1 compared to patients with resolving arthritis.
26782539 Low DKK-1 serum levels are associated with poor prognosis in papillary thyroid cancer patients; DKK-1 could potentially be used as a biomarker leading to earlier diagnosis of papillary thyroid cancer.
26782465 High serum DKK-1 levels may be associated with tumor progression and poor prognosis in bladder cancer and may be used as a potential biomarker to predict the prognosis of patients with bladder cancer
26780085 DKK1 polymorphisms may correlate to baseline bone mineral density and serum beta-CTX levels, but present a weak effect on the response to alendronate.
26545120 SOST and DKK1 have opposing effects on PC3 cell invasion and bone-derived Wnt signaling positively contributes to the invasive phenotypes of PC3
26407843 Immunohistochemical analysis of DKK-1 expression in 97 breast cancer samples revealed that high expression of p38 was associated with a higher expression of DKK-1 compared to tumours with low p38 expression.
26400224 miR-152 blocked DKK1 transcriptional activity by binding to the 3'UTR of DKK1 mRNA.
