PMID Text
27089523 PTN levels in amniotic fluid were found to be lower in pregnancies complicated by chorioamnionitis than in healthy pregnancies.
26914549 Increased Pleiotrophin Concentrations in Papillary Thyroid Cancer
26645582 findings link pleiotrophin abundance in gliomas with survival in humans and mice, and show that pleiotrophin promotes glioma progression through increased VEGF deposition and vascular abnormalization.
26408254 Data show that binding of pleiotrophin (PTN) to neuropilin-1 (NRP-1) stimulated the internalization and recycling of NRP-1 at the cell surface.
25864755 PTN was found to express abnormally high in lung cancer, especially small cell lung cancer tissue.
25743809 High serum pleiotrophin levels are associated with non-small cell lung cancer.
25436328 Over expression of PTN is significantly correlated with poor prognosis in gastric cancer patients.
25418856 PTN and its signaling components may be of significance in the pathogenesis of epithelial ovarian cancer.
25141921 PTN decreased melanogenesis, probably through MITF degradation via Erk1/2 activation in melanocytes.
25001988 PTN expression in glioma was higher than in paratumor tissues. Overexpression was associated with the WHO grade, low Karnofsky score, time to recurrence, and poor survival. Co-expression of midkine and PTN had a worse prognosis than either alone.
