Gene RIF (67)

26886577 Human FTH1 is a general pro-survival sequence.
26602884 Ferritin light chain and ferritin heavy chain are required for the neural differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells under extremely low-frequency electromagnetic field.
26540556 H-ferritin tissue expression and the number of CD68+/H-ferritin+ cells were increased in the lymph nodes of adult-onset Still's disease patients, and these results correlated significantly with disease severity
26518749 Studies indicate that the the best characterized cytosolic ferritins in mammals are encoded by two genes, FTH and FTL, with four exons and similar structures.
26327381 Stopped-flow kinetics assays revealed that human H ferritin has different levels of activity compared with its R. catesbeiana counterpart
25448225 The goals of this study were to evaluate the multilineage differentiation ability of human mesenchymal stem cells expressing an MRI reporter, human ferritin heavy chain (FTH).
25265351 High ferritin expression is associated with malignant phenotype of breast cancer.
25134646 Significant differences were seen in the levels of serum iron and hepcidin but not ferritin between the -582A>G hepcidin polymorphism genotypes.
24742827 high cytoplasmic FTH1 was associated with favorable prognosis whereas nuclear FTH1 staining was associated with adverse prognosis in triple negative breast cancer
24512320 Data suggest that iron-independent effects of ferritin in myeloma should be prospectively investigated in preclinical and clinical studies.
