Effects of low level laser therapy on inflammatory and angiogenic gene expression during the process of bone healing: A microarray analysis.
São Carlos, Brazil. In J Photochem Photobiol B, Jan 2016
Microarray analysis demonstrated that LLLT produced an up-regulation of the genes related to the inflammatory process (MMD, PTGIR, PTGS2, Ptger2, IL1, 1IL6, IL8, IL18) and the angiogenic genes (FGF14, FGF2, ANGPT2, ANGPT4 and PDGFD) at 36h and 3days, followed by the decrease of the gene expression on day 7. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that the subjects that were treated presented a higher expression of COX-2 at 36h after surgery and an increased VEGF expression on days 3 and 7 after surgery.
Emerging roles of PDGF-D in EMT progression during tumorigenesis.
Bengbu, China. In Cancer Treat Rev, 2013
Platelet-derived growth factor-D (PDGF-D) signaling pathway has been reported to be involved in regulating various cellular processes, such as cell growth, apoptotic cell death, migration, invasion, angiogenesis and metastasis.
