Mast cells, TGF-beta 1 and alpha-SMA expression in IgA nephropathy
(IOS PRESS, 2008)
IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is a kidney disease with a varying renal prognosis. Recently, many studies have demonstrated that renal alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) and transforming growth factor (TGF-beta 1) expression, ...
Transforming growth factor-beta 1 autocrine stimulation regulates fibroblast proliferation in hereditary gingival fibromatosis
(Amer Acad PeriodontologyChicagoEUA, 2001)
Differential uPA expression by TGF-beta 1 in gingival fibroblasts
(INT AMER ASSOC DENTAL RESEARCHI A D R/A A D R, 2006-02)
Transforming Growth Factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) plays a key role in connective tissue remodeling and inflammation. Under pathological conditions, like periodontal disease, fibroblasts may display an altered response to this ...
Testicular expression of the TGF-B1 system and the control of Leydig cell proliferation
(Scientific Research, 2013-10-30)
Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta1) is a key regulator that modulates male reproductive function. Testicular TGF-beta1 modulates the steroidogenesis of Leydig cells, the organization of peritubular myoid cells, ...
Effect of human TGF-beta on the gene expression profile of Schistosoma mansoni adult worms
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BVAMSTERDAM, 2012)
Schistosoma mansoni is responsible for schistosomiasis, a parasitic disease that affects 200 million people worldwide. Molecular mechanisms of host-parasite interaction are complex and involve a crosstalk between host ...
