Gene RIF (5)

22988241 AP-1 activation has an important role in promoting LY6K gene expression that regulates cell mobility of breast cancer cells
22072328 it appears that LY6K is constitutively overexpressed either by copy number changes, or by yet unknown mechanisms in gingivobuccal squamous cell carcinoma
20237496 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18089789 Useful as a tumor biomarker and probably as a target for the development of new molecular therapies for cancer treatment.
17784873 Data show that TTK protein kinase, lymphocyte antigen 6 complex locus K and insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-II mRNA binding protein 3 are tumor-associated antigens recognized by cytotoxic T lymphocytes and HLA-A24-restricted epitope peptides.
