26817565 This review discusses the role of LIF and the recent analysis of its action on the uterine LE in regulating endometrial receptivity and implantation.
26776907 Women with dormant genital tuberculosis were found to have decreased endometrial LIF-STAT3 signaling.
26723254 Taken together, we firstly demonstrate that LIF enhances the adhesion of trophoblastic cells to endometrial cells by up-regulating expression of integrin heterodimer alphaVbeta3 and alphaVbeta5.
26716902 Overexpression of LIF promotes Epithelial-mesenchymal transition and results in cancer.
26296968 Data show that leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) signaling promote chemoresistance in cholangiocarcinoma by up-regulating myeloid cell factor-1 (Mcl-1) via phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/c-akt protein (AKT)-dependent pathway.
26271643 LIF was frequently overexpressed in osteosarcoma, which could promote the growth and invasion through activating the STAT3 pathway.
26187859 Despite common signal transduction mechanisms (JAK/STAT, MAPK and PI3K) LIF can have paradoxically opposite effects in different cell types including stimulating or inhibiting each of cell proliferation, differentiation and survival.
25885043 LIF/p21 signaling cascade as a novel tumor suppressive-like pathway in melanoma, acting downstream of TGFbeta to regulate cell cycle arrest and cell death, further highlight new potential therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cutaneous melanoma
25879318 LIF structure, signaling pathway, and primary roles in the development and function of an organism are reviewed--{REVIEW}
25790555 Studied the association of tubal pregnancy with leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and leukemia inhibitory factor receptor (LIFR) expression in oviduct tissues.
