26505791 TBP attenuates Msx1-mediated glycoprotein hormone alpha transcriptional repression.
26279419 The present results have for the first time shown protective effects exerted by hCG on vascular endothelial function.
26191157 Human chorionic gonadotropin provides a mechanism to bridge embryo to endometrium through beta1,4-GalT.
25933205 the 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxyamide ribonucleoside (AICAR)-induced activation of AMPK directly inhibited the expression of SREBP-2 and HMGCR and HMGCS, and suppressed the TSH-stimulated up-regulation of SREBP-2 in HepG2 cells.
25529346 Limitations in the process of transcription and translation inhibit recombinant human chorionic gonadotropin expression in CHO cells.
25403028 thyroid-stimulating hormone elevations can obviously be the initial finding in pseudohypoparathyroidism type Ib patients.
25185682 Serum TSH was associated with pulse wave velocity on population level when adjusted with age and sex.
25064170 This study showed a link between low maternal serum hCG levels and cryptorchidism in boys from uncomplicated pregnancy.
24753159 A protective effect of hCG against breast cancer may be associated with its growth inhibitory and differentiation induction function in breast cancer cells.
24723381 A single low TSH at baseline was associated with increased risk of hip fractures (adj HR 1.16, 95% CI 1.07-1.26, p < 0.001) but not major osteoporotic fractures (MOF, adj HR 1.06, 95% CI 0.99-1.12, p = 0.058) over a median follow-up of 7.5 years.
