26607331 this is the first report of bile acid derivatives able to antagonize GPBAR1 and and farnesoid X receptor (FXR) modulatory activity.
26420419 TGR5 is a mediator of bile acid-induced cholangiocyte proliferation and protects cholangiocytes from apoptosis but may trigger proliferation and apoptosis resistance in malignantly transformed cholangiocytes, promoting cholangiocarcinoma.
26417930 These findings identify TGR5 as a suppressor of gastric cancer cell proliferation and migration
26045278 Collectively, these data suggest the involvement of TGR5 in PLD and that TGR5 targeting in cystic cholangiocytes may have therapeutic potential.
25934094 GPBAR1 plays a role in secondary bile acid induced vasodilation via reglation of cystathionine gamma-lyase. The GPBAR1/CSE pathway might contribute to endothelial dysfunction and hyperdynamic circulation in liver cirrhosis.
25418122 Because elevated levels of circulatory LPS may contribute to the development of insulin resistance, the results from this study suggest that bile acids through the activation of TGR5 may have a role in the development of insulin resistance as well.
25283506 Study demonstrates that highly lipophilic 3-epi-betulinic acid derivatives can be potent and selective TGR5 agonists with improved cellular efficacy.
25012842 GPBAR1 SNP is associated with symptoms and pathobiology in IBS-D and IBS-C.
24465162 Our findings strongly suggested the combination of serum TGR5 promoter methylation and AFP enhanced the diagnostic value of AFP alone in discriminating HCC from CHB patients.
24338481 the secondary structure of the TGR5 membrane-proximal C terminus is the determining factor for plasma membrane localization and responsiveness towards extracellular ligands.
