Gene RIF (8)

26608031 Data suggest enforced expression of Stella into normal cells induces not only global DNA demethylation but also neoplastic transformation and increases metastatic ability; these changes involve altered regulation of neoplastic gene expression.
25280994 Considering that impaired DNA methylation profiles are associated with various developmental or disease phenomena, Stella may be a powerful tool with which to study the biological effects of global DNA hypomethylation
23457636 a role for STELLA in facilitating germline and endodermal differentiation of human ES cells
17143267 These results demonstrate that PGC7/Stella is indispensable for the maintenance of methylation involved in epigenetic reprogramming after fertilization.
16291741 human adult tissue-specific transcripts originate via retrotransposition of the pluripotent cell-specific gene, Dppa3
15018652 In mice, knockout experiments show this gene may be a maternal factor in cleavage stage embryogenesis.
14654002 In mice, a targeted mutation results in reduced female fertility and may function as a mammalian maternal effect gene.
11900980 In mice, this gene may play a role in oogenesis and primordial germ cell development.
