26574554 In the current study, conditioned media and chemically defined media with recombinant human keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) could induce hUC-MSC differentiation into sweat gland-like cells (SGCs).
26514676 This study evaluated the expression of FGF7, AhR, and CYP1A1 in colorectal cancer cells and revealed a new mechanism by which KGF promotes cell proliferation through the AhR-cyclin D1 pathway in colon cancer cells.
26350198 Coexpression of KGF and MMP-9 in gastric cancer could be a useful prognostic factor, and MMP-9 might also serve as a novel target for both prognostic prediction and therapeutics.
25623741 FGF7 over expression is associated with advanced clinical features in patients with upper tract and bladder urothelial carcinoma
25313018 Data indicate the key roles played, on the melanosome transfer in normal skin, by KGF/FGF7 released by dermal fibroblasts and by its receptor KGFR/FGFR2b expressed and activated on the epidermal keratinocytes.
25138153 KGF expression induced epithelial cell proliferation, reaching a peak level at day 4 and then decreased later, while in the long-term model, KGF expression in the EAC led to middle ear cholesteatoma formation
24783215 Recombinant keratinocyte growth factor 1 in tobacco potentially promotes wound healing in diabetic rats.
24667918 Microarray analysis indicates HIV-1 Tat-induced upregulation of fibroblast growth factor 7 (FGF7; KGF: keratinocyte growth factor) in primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells
24577098 First evidence of a role of FGF7 in the regulation of sequential steps of the autophagic process and strengthen the hypothesis of a direct interplay between autophagy and differentiation.
24434934 These findings indicate that topically delivered KGF-1 DNA plasmid can increase epithelial thickness and strength, demonstrating the potential of this approach to restore compromised skin.
