26957205 Data suggest that thrombin can directly activate PAR2 vasorelaxation, signal transduction (stimulating both calcium and MAP kinase responses), and triggering beta-arrestin recruitment (both beta-arrestin 1 and 2).
26839311 Stimulation of PAR-2 activates Nf-kappaB signaling, resulting in RelA nuclear translocation and enhanced expression of pro-inflammatory mRNAs in oral squamous cell carcinoma.
26729042 Activation of PAR-2 by SLIGRL, a PAR-2 specific ligand, leads to dual phosphorylation of both catalytic sites but primarily regulated eNOS-Thr-495 phosphorylation with no change in nitric oxide production.
26666432 involved in pathway induced by house dust mites, which has anti-apoptotic effects on neutrophils of normal and allergic subjects
26658828 PAR-2 expression is increased on CD14++CD16+ monocytes in the peripheral blood of subjects with severe asthma and may be a biomarker of asthma severity.
26600192 Binding of the PH domain of PAR-2 enables breast cancer growth and extravillous trophoblast invasion.
26354435 In colorectal cancer, miR-125b mediates PAR2-induced cancer cell migration by targeting Gab2.
26294672 These findings suggested that the pathophysiology of heartburn sensation or esophageal hypersensitivity may be associated with the activation of PAR-2, TRPV1, and acid-sensing ion channels.
26244666 Results suggest that expression levels of protease activated receptors 1 and 2 (PAR-1 and PAR-2) associate with breast cancer outcome in an estrogen receptor (ER)-dependent manner.
26238490 Data indicate that PAR2 stimulation induces the production of many key inflammatory mediators.
