AREG

A gene on chromosome 4q13-q21 that encodes a member of the epidermal growth factor family, which is an autocrine growth factor and a mitogen for astrocytes, Schwann cells and fibroblasts. AREG interacts with the EGF/TGF-alpha receptor to promote the growth of normal epithelial cells and inhibits certain aggressive carcinoma cell lines.

They observed that adding TAM to the treatment with [E.sub.2] decreased AREG mRNA expression by 38%, suggesting that [E.sub.2] stimulates AREG expression via ER.
A cascade of events involved in extrinsic apoptosis signaling was analyzed which unveiled evidence for a functional involvement of AREG in the reduced PICD of neonatal monocytes and suggested AREG as potential target for the modulation of neonatal inflammation.
Sections were then separately incubated with the primary antibodies directed against YAP, TAZ, and AREG at 4[degrees]C overnight, detected using biotinylated secondary antibodies (Zhongshan Golden bridge Biotechnology Ltd.
AREG's next event is going to explore opportunities through diversification.
(30) In addition, autocrine release of AREG, HB-EGF, betacellulin, and TGF[alpha] occur during serum starvation, (48,52-55) indicating that autocrine stimulation of EGFR can contribute to basal invasion capability.
Instead, we used the more conservative generalized linear model (Proc GLM; SAS Institute Inc.) to evaluate the effect of TCDD, DMBA, and diet on phenotypes (body weight, percent body fat, fasting blood glucose, branch elongation, fat pad length, number of terminal end buds, size of terminal end buds, and fold change) (Livak and Schmittgen 2001) of Cyp1a1, Cyp1a2, Cyp1b1, Areg, Ereg, Egf, Rac1, Tgfb, Bax, Ccnd1, Mki67, Igf1, Fgf2, Ahr, Egfr, and Esr1 levels.
Iain Todd, AREG's senior adviser, said: "We believe that the two projects can co-exist.
The bomber's wife, Areg, told Reuters: "Thank God, my husband is a martyr."
They encompass membrane-bound cytokines (TNFa), cytokine receptors (IL-6R, TNF-R), growth factors, in particular ligands of EGFR (TGF-[alpha], AREG, EREG, HBEGF, and epigen), adhesion proteins (L-selectin, ICAM-1), and transmembrane mucins (MUC-1).
the end of the year, Areg Galstyan, Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, told ArmInfo.
