26351209 Identify two novel factors, AKR1C2 (positive factor) and NF1 (negative factor), as the AEG-1 downstream players in the process of metastasis in liver cancer.
26318406 We identified two powerful genes in the liver cancer metastasis process, AEG-1 and AKR1C2.
26244607 The endogenous HMOX1 gene but not the AKR1C2 gene is strongly repressed by Bach1 in HaCaT keratinocytes.
25463305 In model cell lines of endometrial cancer, AKR1C2 and SRD5A1 have crucial roles in progesterone metabolism.
24434280 The V54L mutation significantly decreases the 3alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity of DDH2 for the reduction of dihydrotestosterone.
24244276 Significantly higher levels of SRD5A1, AKR1C2, AKR1C3, and HSD17B10 mRNA were however found in bone metastases than in non-malignant and/or malignant prostate tissue
22534668 DDH2 expression might be a potential predictor and monitor of cisplatin efficacy in advanced NSCLC patients.
22275760 Data suggest that modulation of AKR1C2 by glucocorticoids (dexamethasone in this study) locally modifies exposure of adipose cells to endogenous androgens; thus, AKR1C2 activation/inactivation may be involved in regional fat deposition.
22064385 Data suggest that interleukin-1beta facilitates progesterone metabolism in cervical fibroblasts by regulating expression of AKR1C1 and AKR1C2.
21521174 role of AKR1C2 in the metabolism of testosterone and progesterone via the 5beta-reductase pathway.
