Gene RIF (17)

26406402 Loss of ALK7 expression are associated with invasion, metastasis of the pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
26289399 Alk7 is expressed in male germ cells and Sertoli cells.
23793810 ACVR 1C is a tumor suppressor, and lowered ACVR 1C expression is an important marker for the metastasis, invasion, and prognosis of gallbladder cancer.
23765385 Our findings suggested that the ALK7 gene polymorphism rs13010956 was significantly associated with metabolic syndrome risk in females and may be involved in cardiovascular remodeling in metabolic syndrome patients.
22086737 reduction or lack of ALK7 expression may account for the loss of its ligand sensitivity of breast cancer cells, thereby leading to breast tumor progression.
21356369 These findings suggest that the Nodal/ALK7 pathway plays important roles in human placentation and that its abnormal signaling may contribute to the development of preeclampsia.
20734064 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19275893 Microarray analysis showed that adipose tissue expressed activin type I and II receptors and that the expression of activin receptor-like kinase 7 was adipose tissue specific.
18951876 One of the direct target genes in the ALK7 signaling pathway is the insulin gene in pancreatic beta-cells, and that PDX-1 is directly involved in this pathway through interaction with Smad2 and Smad3.
18784254 The antiproliferative effect of Nodal/ALK7 on ovarian cancer cells is in part mediated by cyclin G2.
