Gene RIF (22)

26572146 GAL and its receptors, GALR1 and GALR2, play a role in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma tumorigenesis
24706871 Variants in genes for galanin (GAL) and its receptors (GALR1, GALR2, GALR3), despite their disparate genomic loci, conferred increased risk of depression and anxiety in people who experienced childhood adversity or recent negative life events.
23727823 GALR1 methylation is associated with endometrial cancer.
22859720 Moreover, we have identified a novel role for the GalR1/galanin receptor-ligand axis in chemoresistance, providing evidence to support its further evaluation as a potential therapeutic target and biomarker in colorectal cancer .
21796100 Genetic variants in the GALR1 gene are associated with a protective effect in nicotine dependence.
21430647 The results of this study suggested an association between variation at the GALR1 locus and baseline craving for tobacco in smokers seeking cessation treatment.
