22496059 Exclusion of mutations in ALX3 gene in patients with the syndrome of frontonasal dysgenesis, callosal agenesis, basal encephalocele, and eye anomalies
22106187 We report a novel Y214X mutation in ALX3 in frontorhiny.
22082156 Knockdown of ALX homeobox 3 (ALX3) by siRNA enhances the early stages of HIV-1 replication in HeLa-CD4 cells infected with viral pseudotypes HIV89.6R and HIV8.2N
20634891 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19409524 ALX3 is essential for normal facial development in humans and that deficiency causes a clinically recognizable phenotype, which we term frontorhiny.
16825292 Alx3 participates in the regulation of insulin gene expression in pancreatic beta-cells.
16825292 Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays indicated that Alx3 in mouse pancreatic islets occupies the promoter of the mouse insulin genes.
15226305 Rat Alx3 undergoes restrictive or permissive interactions with nuclear proteins that determine its binding to and transactivation from TAAT target sites selected in a cell-specific manner.
11807986 The lack of a chromosome 1-derived fragment of ALX3 in restriction landmark genomic scanning and virtual genome scans of neuroblastomas is attributable to hypermethylation.
