Gene RIF (17)

25555392 SIX1 and EYA are often co-overexpressed in tumors, and the SIX1-EYA2 interaction has been shown to be critical for metastasis in a breast cancer model.
24810906 Decreased expression of EYA2 is associated with pancreatic adenocarcinomas.
24508260 MIR30A represses Eya2 expression by binding to the 3'-untranslated region of Eya2.The MIR30A/EYA2 axis regulates breast cancer cell proliferation and migration.
24196439 This interaction suggests that CDK6 regulates EYA2 activity, a mechanism that could be important in development and in cancer.
23435380 Given that SIX1 and EYA are overexpressed in many tumor types, our data indicate that targeting the SIX1-EYA complex may be a potent approach to inhibit tumor progression in multiple cancer types
22987659 Functional roles of candidate genes EYA2 (20q13) and hsa-miR-375 (2q35) were studied by siRNA-mediated knock-down and overexpression, respectively, in hrHPV-containing cell lines.
22607316 Studies indicate that the RNA and protein levels of Eya2 is upregulated in ovarian cancer.
21706047 Data implicate Eya2 as a necessary co-factor for many of the metastasis promoting functions of Six1.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20201926 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19950702 Expression of EYA2 in lung adenocarcinoma is augmented.
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19858093 Based on observation that the dachshund-binding site is located between the catalytic core & Sine Oculis binding sites within ED-Eya2, we propose that catalytic activity can be translated to SO binding through DAC, which acts as a transcriptional switch.
19414679 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19351884 EYA2 and EYA3 displayed specificity for Tyr-142 of H2A.X
15705892 EYA2 was found to function as transcriptional activator in ovarian cancer cells by Gal4 assay and to promote tumor growth in vivo in xenograft models.
