27349084 mother of Case 2 also had a mutation in the ALX4 gene, but no enlarged parietal foramina
25944620 Our results show that HOXB13/SLUG and ALX4/SLUG axes are novel pathways that promote EMT and invasion of ovarian cancer cells.
24941917 High-quality solution NMR structures of three homeodomains from human proteins ALX4, ZHX1 and CASP8AP2 were solved.
24764194 We suggest that all ALX4 heterozygote carriers be examined in detail for possible changes in nasal configuration, to establish a detailed genotype-phenotype correlation, leading the way to more comprehensive genetic counseling.
24037716 Epigenetic silencing of Aristaless-like homeobox-4 is associated with lung cancer.
23401352 study describes 2 related individuals with a heterozygous mutation in ALX4 presenting a distinct phenotype of frontonasal dysplasia; suggest that the loss of the ALX4 OAR domain with the maintenance of the homeodomain impairs the function of the normal allele in a dominant-negative effect
22829454 ALX4 variants may have an impact on the genetic etiology of nonsyndromic craniosynostosis.
22496059 Exclusion of mutations in ALX4 gene in patients with the syndrome of frontonasal dysgenesis, callosal agenesis, basal encephalocele, and eye anomalies

20625746 Downregulation of HoxB2, HoxB4 and Alx4 expression during the narrow window of early embryogenesis may cause omphalocele in the Cd chick model by interfering with molecular signaling required for proper VBW formation.
20140221 Data show that methylated DNA from advanced precancerous colorectal lesions can be detected using a panel of two DNA methylation markers, ALX4 and SEPT9.
19783719 data show a distinct pattern of expression of ALX4 in the human breast relative to the murine mammary gland, and the loss of ALX4 in tumours and the surrounding untransformed stroma is a basic characteristic of ductal carcinoma.
19692347 ALX4 plays a critical role in craniofacial and epidermal development.
19336475 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17293876 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16415175 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16319823 The ALX4 mutation p.R218Q tends to result in persistent cranium bifidum and is associated with anatomical abnormalities of the posterior fossa.
15852040 One subject with parietal foramina whose deletion does not include ALX4 indicates that ALX4 in this subject may be rendered functionally haploinsufficient by a position effect.
