26351673 the relative levels of FGF9 in relation to other members of the FGF family may prove key to understanding vulnerability or resilience in affective disorders.
26183774 Data indicate that expressing either human FGF9 in the kidney subcapsular space of female BALB/c mice yielded rapidly expanding local tumors.
25978641 These studies identify FGF9 as a target of DICER1 in lung epithelium that functions as an initiating factor for pleuropulmonary blastoma.
25925261 FGF9 was strongly expressed in CAFs in comparison with NGFs, being compatible with microarray data indicating that FGF9 was a novel growth factor overexpressed in Cancer-associated fibroblasts
25907862 our data demonstrate that FGF9 can initiate a complex astrocytic response predicted to compromise remyelination, while at the same time stimulating microglial/macrophage recruitment in multiple sclerosis lesions
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
24511001 FGF9 can be associated with epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and invasion by inducing VEGF-A expression in prostate cancer cells.
24334956 The data demonstrates that FGF9 IRES functions as a cellular switch to turn FGF9 protein synthesis 'on' during hypoxia, a likely mechanism underlying FGF9 overexpression in cancer cells.
24239165 expression is associated with poor prognosis in lung cancer
24135036 MAP3K1 mutations tilt the balance in the sex-determining pathways by downregulating SOX9 and FGF9.
