26962859 Human FGF-21 Is a Substrate of Fibroblast Activation Protein.
26867126 GDF-15 and FGF-21 are elevated in mitochondrial diseases
26823820 FGF-21 might involve in the development and maintenance of atrial fibrosis in atrial fibrillation with rheumatic heart disease, and FGF-21 could be used as a novel biomarker to evaluate myocardial fibrosis in the future.
26797127 This study identified fibroblast activation protein (FAP) as the enzyme that cleaves and inactivates human FGF21.
26567701 discusses current knowledge of the complex biology of the endocrine FGFs.
26529252 These data establish FGF21 as a fasting-induced hormone in humans and indicate that FGF21 contributes to the late stages of adaptive starvation, when it may regulate the utilization of fuel derived from tissue breakdown.
26456333 the hepatokine IGFBP1 is a critical liver-bone hormonal relay that promotes osteoclastogenesis and bone resorption as well as an essential mediator of FGF21-induced bone loss
26338887 Data suggest expression of FGF21 in liver can be regulated by dietary factors; curcumin (antioxidant dietary supplement) up-regulates FGF21 in human hepatocytes (HepG2 cells) and in mouse liver (to prevent prediabetic state induced by dexamethasone).
26329882 Appropriate signaling of FGF21 to neonate is necessary to ensure optimal digestive and endocrine function in developing intestine.
26294388 Data (including data from hamster studies using continuous subcutaneous infusion of recombinant FGF21) suggest FGF21 exerts metabolic effects in liver by modulating nutrient flux/energy metabolism via both carbohydrate metabolism and fat metabolism.
