Gene RIF (14)

26467157 HOXB5 may be an important regulator of the Wnt/beta-catenin signalling pathway, thereby contributing to gastric cancer progression and metastasis.
25999793 HOXB5 acts as a positive modulator by promoting cell proliferative response and invasiveness in ER-positive breast cancer.
25703667 Roles of Hoxb5 in the development of vagal and trunk neural crest cells.
24189625 Overexpression of HoxB5 enhances blood vessel perfusion in vivo by up-regulation of MCP-1 and IL-6 as well as in enhanced leucocyte infiltration and blood vessel remodelling.
23438671 HOXB5 and HOXB8 are frequently expressed in ovarian serous carcinoma, with anatomic site-related differences for cytoplasmic staining. HOXB5 may be affected by chemotherapy in effusions.
22768238 A miRNA 7-binding single nucleotide polymorphism (1010A/G) located within 3'-UTR of HOXB5 is associated with gene expression and may be a promising prognostic factor for bladder cancer.
22648184 The findings for HOXB5 and PHOX2B provide supportive evidence that genes regulating ENCC proliferation, migration and differentiation could be risk factors for Hirschsprung's disease
22603795 HOXB5, HOXB6, and HOXB7 are activated in Barrett esophagus, and the midcluster HOXB gene signature in BE most resembled the colon rather than other GI epithelia.
22484627 Single nucleotide polymorphism in HOXB5 gene is associated with childhood obesity.
21677782 Data show that human HOXB5 binds to the promoter region 5' upstream of the binding site of NKX2-1 and regulates RET expression.
21552713 results support that expression of HOX genes is associated with oral squamous cell carcinoma; over 90% of OSCC samples presented HOXB5 expression versus 60% of non-tumor tissues, it can be suggested that HOXB5 may be related to the malignant phenotypes.
17623056 DNA hypermethylation of tumour suppressor genes seems to play an important role in ovarian carcinogenesis and HOXA9, HOXB5, SCGB3A1, and CRABP1 are identified as novel hypermethylated target genes in this tumour type
12950074 The expression pattern of HOXB5 correlated with the migration and differentiation of neural crest cells.
12897140 HoxB5 is necessary and sufficient to activate the cell-intrinsic events that regulate the differentiation of angioblasts and mature endothelial cells from their mesoderm-derived precursors
