26945970 The role of Lin28 in cancer and immunity. [Review]
26714839 Our findings suggest that Lin28 plays a key role in the acquisition of resistance to AR-targeted therapies by prostate cancer cells and establish the importance of Lin28 in prostate cancer progression.
26675483 Erythroid-Specific Expression of LIN28A Is Sufficient for Robust Gamma-Globin Gene and Protein Expression in Adult Erythroblasts.
26583126 high LIN28 expressing ovarian cancer cells secrete exosomes that can be taken up by nontumor cells and cause changes in gene expression and cell behavior associated with tumor development. IGROV1
26494358 data document the expression profiles of the Lin28/let-7 system in rat testis along postnatal/pubertal maturation, and their perturbation in models of pubertal and hormonal manipulation
26149387 LIN28 may regulate splicing and gene expression programs that drive breast cancer subtype phenotypes.
26045559 Incubation of a embryonal carcinoma cell line with N-methyl-mesoporphyrin IX reduces its stem cell traits. In particular it decreases OCT4, HMGA1, CCNB1, CDK4, and Lin28A protein, decreases sphere formation, and inhibits colony formation.
25956904 detected aberrant expression of LIN28A and/or LIN28B in 38% of a large series of human CRC samples (n = 595), where LIN28 expression levels were associated with invasive tumor growth
25748578 Intraocular medulloepitheliomas and embryonal tumors with multilayered rosettes of the brain both display LIN28A positivity. Only the latter, however, display amplification of the 19q13.42 locus involving C19MC
25638158 Data implicate LIN28/RAS/MAP kinase as key drivers of tumorigenesis atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumors.
