27010479 These findings implicate DNA hypomethylation as a specific factor in mediating overexpression of genes associated with Biliary Atresia (BA) and identify PDGFA as a new candidate in BA pathogenesis.
27002148 in primary cultures of glioma stemlike cells that EGR1 contributes to stemness marker expression and proliferation by orchestrating a PDGFA-dependent growth-stimulatory loop.
26841646 There was evidence for the involvement of PDGF, IGF-1, and EGF in primary pulmonary hypoplasia. PDGF deficiency plays a certain role in secondary pulmonary hypoplasia
26769046 PDGF-AA impairs endothelium-dependent vasodilation and PDGF-AA mediates BMP4-induced adverse effect on endothelial cell function through SMAD1/5- and SMAD4-dependent mechanisms.
26535645 The development and severity of age-related cataracts was related to the secretion and expression of PDGF-alpha.
26420039 Human uPAR activation and its association with beta1-integrin are required for PDGF-AB-induced migration.
26088859 PDGF and TGFbeta1 regulate acute respiratory distress syndrome-associated lung fibrosis through distinct signaling pathway-mediated activation of fibrosis-related proteins.
25869208 Demonstrate a novel positive regulatory feedback loop between FoxM1 and the PDGF-A/AKT signaling pathway, which contributes to breast cancer cell growth and tumorigenesis.
25832656 our findings showed how FoxM1 activates expression of PDGF-A and STAT3 in a pathway required to maintain the self-renewal and tumorigenicity of glioma stem-like cells.
25767870 MIC-1 and PDGF-A expression is elevated in both prostate tumors and structurally intact adjacent tissues.
