07/12/2012 - "In the present study, we show that activin B has an unexpected but crucial role in the induction of hepcidin by inflammation. "
03/01/2015 - "Activin-A and activin-B, members of the TGF-β superfamily, are regulators of reproductive functions, inflammation and wound healing. "
01/01/2011 - "Activin A has long been known to be a critical regulator of inflammation and immunity, and similar roles are now emerging for activin B, with which it shares 65% sequence homology. "
10/01/2013 - "Hepcidin and ferroportin also play a role in host defense and inflammation, and hepcidin synthesis is induced by inflammatory signals including interleukin-6 and activin B. "
07/12/2012 - "Pretreatment with a bone morphogenic protein type I receptor inhibitor showed that the effect of activin B on hepcidin expression is entirely attributable to its effect on bone morphogenetic protein signaling, most likely via activin receptor-like kinase 3. Activin B is therefore a novel and specific target for the treatment of anemia of inflammation."
|2.||Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
02/01/2015 - "Activin A has been suggested to participate in the pathophysiology of human idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), but studies on the role of activin B are sparse. "
02/01/2015 - "Upregulation of alveolar levels of activin B, but not activin A, in lungs of west highland white terriers with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and diffuse alveolar damage."
01/01/2014 - "First, we identified by expression array screening that activin-B and follistatin are upregulated in human idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). "
|3.||Wounds and Injuries (Trauma)
01/01/2011 - "These results demonstrate that activin B promotes epithelial wound closure in vivo through the RhoA-Rock-JNK-cJun signaling pathway, providing novel insight into the essential role of activin B in the therapy of wound repair."
01/01/2011 - "Activin B efficiently stimulated the proliferation of keratinocytes and hair follicle cells at the wound area and promoted wound closure. "
02/01/1996 - "In situ hybridization studies revealed expression of activin A in the granulation tissue below the wound and activin B in the hyperproliferative epithelium at the wound edge and in the migrating epithelial tongue. "
|5.||Endometrial Neoplasms (Endometrial Cancer)
10/13/2015 - "In the present study, we examined the biological functions of activin B in type II endometrial cancer cell lines, HEC-1B and KLE. "
10/13/2015 - "However, little is known about the specific roles and mechanisms of activin B (βB dimer) in serous endometrial cancer growth and progression. "
10/13/2015 - "Activin B induces human endometrial cancer cell adhesion, migration and invasion by up-regulating integrin β3 via SMAD2/3 signaling."
10/13/2015 - "Our results suggest that activin B-SMAD2/3-integrin β3 signaling could contribute to poor patient survival by promoting the invasion and/or metastasis of type II endometrial cancers. "
