25490384 Bex2 affects the invasion and migration ability of glioma cells by regulating beta-catenin
23022184 Bex2 may be an important player during the development of glioma
22907646 Bex2 overexpression promoted cell migration and invasion in glioma cell lines.
22698742 Both BEX2 and INI1/hSNF5 mainly localized in cell nucleus.
21384344 BEX2 overexpression was associated with breast cancer.
20482821 BEX2 has a functional interplay with c-Jun and p65/RelA in breast cancer.
19835597 These results suggest that the conspicuous expression of the tumor suppressor genes BEX2, IGSF4 and TIMP3 in MLLmu acute myeloid leukemias cell lines is the consequence of altered epigenetic properties of MLL fusion proteins.
19412433 BEX2 is implicated in oligodendroglioma biology.
17638883 a NGF/BEX2/NF-kappaB pathway is involved in regulating apoptosis in breast cancer cells and in modulating response to tamoxifen in primary tumors
17251904 Correlation between BEX2 expression and mixed lineage leukemia chromosomal aberrations are shown in the cell lines.
16818640 Two novel brain expressed genes, BEX1 and BEX2 are identified; they are silenced in all glioma specimens and exhibit extensive promoter hypermethylation.
16314316 hBex2 may act as a specific regulator during embryonic development by modulating the transcriptional activity of a novel E-box sequence-binding complex that contains hBex2, LMO2, NSCL2 and LDB1.
