26305619 Data suggest that activin A up-regulates SNAIL expression via ALK4/ACVR1B-induced SMAD signaling in trophoblast cells; elevated SNAIL contributes to up-regulation of MMP2 expression which plays key role in promoting trophoblast cell invasion.
26289399 ALK4 is expressed in male germ cells and Sertoli cells.
26149389 This study demonstrated positive regulation of monocyte/macrophage differentiation by lnc-MC and uncovered an elaborate regulation mechanism composed of PU.1, lnc-MC, miR-199a-5p, and ACVR1B.
25258381 ACVR1B functions as a positive regulator of monocyte/macrophage differentiation. ACVR1B knockdown promoted THP-1 proliferation by increasing Rb phosphorylation. Down-regulation reduced p-Smad2/3 and C/EBPalpha, inhibiting monocyte/macrophage differentiation.
24886203 The deletion of the ACVR1B gene may mediate an aggressive cancer phenotype in pancreatic cancer.
23211491 Findings define a regulatory role of miR-98 in tumor angiogenesis and invasion through repressed ALK4 and MMP11 expression.
23159635 ActRIBCA signaling can promote cell migration in prostate cancer cells via a network of signaling molecules that work together to trigger the process of EMT, and thereby aid in the aggressiveness and progression of prostate cancers.
23010638 Act A protein levels were significantly higher in NTM tissues compared to GTM tissues.
22267736 Inhibin alpha-subunit N terminus interacts with activin type IB receptor to disrupt activin signaling.
21377836 Activin A-ACVRIB/ALK4-Smad-dependent collagen production was augmented in SSc fibroblasts, suggesting the involvement of this signaling mechanism in systemic sclerosis.
