26638071 Study solved crystal structures of a human Brf2-TATA-binding complex bound to natural promoters, obtaining a detailed view of the molecular interactions occurring at Brf2-dependent Pol III promoters and highlighting the general structural and functional conservation of human Pol II and Pol III pre-initiation complexes.
24978456 hnRNP F is a co-factor in a subset of tristetraprolin/BRF1/BRF2-mediated mRNA decay.
24738062 These results suggested that BRF2 overexpression in tumor tissues is significantly associated with the poor prognosis of NSCLC patients through promoting epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) program.
24523874 BRF2 may have a role in poor prognosis and anti-angiogenic therapy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer
23550276 High expression of BRF2 is closely associated with tumor progression, angiogenesis, and poor survival in esophageal squamous cell cancer.
20668658 BRF2 can serve as a marker for lung squamous cell carcinoma and may provide a novel target for therapy.
18700021 deregulation of Brf1 and Brf2 expression could be a key mechanism responsible for the observed deregulation of RNA pol III transcription in cancer cells
16227591 C-terminal domain of Brf2 is required for efficient association of the protein with U6 promoter-bound TBP and SNAP(c), a type 3 promoter-specific transcription factor, and for efficient recruitment of Bdp1
