26559027 serum levels can be a marker of cutaneous manifestation in dermatomyositis and marker of microangiopathy in systemic sclerosis
26521986 Pre-treatment serum levels of FLT3-L were higher than controls. FLT3-L correlated positively with all soluble angiogenic factors, as well with bone marrow microvascular density. Post-treatment FLT3-L decreased significantly in responders to therapy.
25135299 Flt3L enhances global T cell and humoral immunity as well as both the numbers and antigen capture capacity of migratory dendritic cells and classical lymphoid-resident dendritic cells
24419512 The immunohistochemical expression of caveolin-1 and podocalyxin in lungs from rats challenged with a 2-kDa macrophage-activating lipopeptide (MALP-2) and Flt3L, was examined.
24314260 The Flt3L/CD135 axis is active in rheumatoid arthritis
23124877 Administration of the hematopoietic growth factor Flt3L to human subjects increases the frequency and absolute number of Treg cells.
22463758 Human bone marrow stromal cells simultaneously support B and T/NK lineage development from human haematopoietic progenitors: a principal role for flt3 ligand in lymphopoiesis.
22110249 A novel dendritic cell(DC) progenitor regulatory pathway in which PGE(2) signaling through EP1/EP3 receptors regulates Flt3 expression and downstream STAT3 activation and survivin expression, required for optimal progenitor survival and differentiation.
21516120 FLT3 ligand(FL) leads to further activation of FLT3 mutants and is especially important in light of recent findings of elevated FL levels in acute myeloid leukemia patients in response to chemotherapy.
21505426 data demonstrate that the Flt3L/TK gene therapeutic approach can induce systemic immunological memory capable of recognizing a brain tumor neoantigen in a model of recurrent GBM
