26439168 KLF14 transcription is significantly downregulated, whereas Plk4 transcription is upregulated in multiple types of cancers, and there exists an inverse correlation between KLF14 and Plk4 protein expression in human breast and colon cancers.
26368306 Transduction of HepG2 cells with human KLF14 showed that KLF14 is a regulator of APOA1 expression.
26226221 KLF14 plays an important role in increasing glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity by the activation of PI3-kinase/Akt signaling pathway in vitro.
24759103 This is the first description of the activity and mechanisms underlying the function of KLF14 as an activator protein and novel regulator of lipid signaling.
24486580 The risk allele C of rs151290 in KCNQ1 and risk allele G of rs972283 in KLF14 were both associated with increased risk of T2DM in a global population.
24195066 The objective of the present study was to detect the association of the rs4731702 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and serum lipid levels in the Guangxi Mulao and Han populations.
21572415 we show that the type 2 diabetes and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol-associated cis-acting expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) of the maternally expressed transcription factor KLF14 acts as a master trans regulator of adipose gene expression

19088080 the TGFbeta pathway activation leads to recruitment of a KLF14-mSin3A-HDAC2 repressor complex to the TGFbetaRII promoter, as well as the remodeling of chromatin to increase histone marks that associate with transcriptional silencing.
17480121 KLF14 gene is imprinted, with preferential expression from the maternal allele.
