26784191 A new SEMA3F transcript is expressed in all breast cell lines and breast cancer biopsies, and is translated into a new semaphorin 3F isoform.
26722466 SEMA3F was downregulated in colorectal cancer tissues as compared to matched adjacent non-tumor tissues
26156437 SEMA3F-NRP2 interactions inhibit intracellular PI-3K activity, mTORC2-dependent signaling, RhoA activity and cytoskeletal stress fiber formation.
26086095 Infantile hemangioma-derived stem cells and endothelial cells are inhibited by SEMA3E and SEMA3F.
25952650 SEMA3F may represent an antilymphangiogenic metastasis suppressor gene widely lost during cancer progression, hence serving as a prognostic biomarker and an attractive target for therapeutic intervention to halt metastasis.
25866254 SEMA3F functions as a suppressor of colorectal cancer metastasis by down-regulating the ASCL2-CXCR4 signaling axis.
25529012 Our findings demonstrate the ability of SEMA3F to inhibit the stemness of human CRC cells by suppressing Rac1 activation, which suggests a novel therapeutic approach for colorectal cancer
25068647 Data indicate that semaphorin 3F (SEMA3F) and its receptor neuropilin-2 (NRP2) are expressed in the thymus.
24079887 Data suggest that SEMA3F C-terminal domain exhibits high-affinity binding of neuropilin-1 (NRP1; thus inhibiting binding of vascular endothelial growth factor A to NRP1); this interaction may be involved in anti-angiogenic activity of SEMA3F.
23603393 A functional role for Semaphorin 3F in the outer retina where it acts as a vasorepulsive cue to maintain physiologic avascularity.

21610314 It was concluded that hypoxia regulates VEGF and SE MA3F activities through transcriptional repression of their common receptor NRP2, providing a novel mechanism by which hypoxia induces tumor angiogenesis, growth and metastasis.
21349996 Endogenous SEMA3F acts as a suppressor of the growth and metastasis of human colorectal cancer cells.
20388805 Metastatic tumor cells overexpress c-myc, leading to upregulation of Id2 expression; the aberrantly elevated amount of Id2 represses SEMA3F expression and, as a consequence, enhances the ability of tumor cells to migrate and invade.

19177200 SEMA3F loss was associated with changes in cell signaling: increased phospho-AKT in normoxia and hypoxia-induced factor 1alpha protein. Exogenous addition of SEMA3F could modulate ZEB-1-induced angiogenesis in a chorioallantoic membrane assay.
18818766 Sema3F inhibits tumor development from MDA-MB-435 and MDA-MB-231 and but not MCF-7 or MDA-MB-68 cancer cells. It inhibits tumor angiogenesis in all of the formed tumors. The inhibition is correlated with the expression of neuropilins of the tumors cells.
18660502 ABL2/ARG is a novel mediator of SEMA3F-induced RhoA inactivation and collapsing activity.
18476556 Transient SEMA-3F gene transfection may inhibit the proliferation of Tca8113 cells.

17569671 combinations of sema3A and sema3F may be able to inhibit tumor angiogenesis more effectively than single semaphorins.
17308083 Results suggest that p53 negatively regulates tumor vessel formation and cell growth via the SEMA3F-NRP2 pathway.
15967098 SEMA3F suppresses lung neoplasm progression in an experimental model
