Angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) belongs to the B family of the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) family. β-Arrestins are known as negative regulators of GPCRs. Recently, β-arrestins have been found to regulate multiple intracellular signaling pathways independent(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) cancer, characterized by its leading mortality, is one of the most common cancers worldwide. The underlying mechanisms contributing to epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastasis of GI cancer are poorly understood.

Leukemia inhibitory factory (LIF), as a member of the IL-6 family, has been reported to ameliorate myocardial fibrosis and myocardial cell death. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of LIF on renal fibrosis and its underlying mechanism. Our results showed, first, that LIF inhibited collagen type 1 and collagen type 3 expression(More)
