26704889 results suggested the existence of E2F1-miR-34c-SCF negative feedback loop which was interrupted by the hyper-methylation of miR-34c promoter in CRC cells and increased cell proliferation.
26522471 Allelic Mutations of KITLG, Encoding KIT Ligand, Cause Asymmetric and Unilateral Hearing Loss and Waardenburg Syndrome Type 2.
26188365 Na+/H+ antiporter inhibition induces cell death in TF-1 erythroleukemia cells stimulated by the stem cell factor
26179221 We identified a new heterozygous missense mutation in two families with hyper- and hypopigmentation disorders (p.Thr34Asn and p.Val37Gly, respectively). Of the six affected individuals examined by us, two had cancer.
26177551 IL-7 and SCF are elevated for a prolonged period after double umbilical cord blood transplantation and persistently high levels of these cytokines may correlate with worse clinical outcomes.
26049754 Foxc1 is essential for progenitor cell development and maintenance of bone marrow niches for these cells upregulating CXCL12 and SCF expression and inhibiting of adipogenic processes in cell progenitors. (Review)
26026391 KIT and KITLG are expressed by a subset of human colon tumors. KIT signaling promotes growth of colon cancer cells and organoids in culture and xenograft tumors in mice via its ligand, KITLG, in an autocrine or paracrine manner.
25962936 Paracrine signaling from SCF to KIT, between differentiated tumor cells and undifferentiated stem-like tumor cells, helps maintain the stem-like features of tumor cells, predominantly under conditions of hypoxia.
25799412 Results identified SCF as a direct target of HIF-1 in pancreatic cancer. SCF/c-kit promoted invasion and proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells and may be a new target for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
25766327 we found that Kl treatment impairs Nodal mRNA expression and Fgf9-mediated Nanos2 induction, reinforcing the antagonistic effect of these two growth factors on the meiotic fate of male germ cells
