26540345 Data show that melanoma antigen, family C, 2 protein (MAGE-C2) binds with RING-box protein 1 (Rbx1) and Cullin 1, and regulates cyclin E stability in melanoma cells.
26321295 MAGE-C1 and MAGE-C2 expressions were positively associated with high tumor grade and reduced recurrence-free survival in breast cancer.
26161400 expression of CT7 and CT10 throughout the different subtypes of mucosal melanoma and tumor development.
24866244 overexpression of HCA587 resulted in a significant enhancement of LMP1-induced IL-6 production. These data indicate that HCA587 is a new negative regulator of BS69
24820892 MAGE-C1 and MAGE-C2 are expressed in myeloma, but the chromosome aberrations do not always correlate with expression
24713551 In gastrointestinal stromal tumors, 5/51 (10%) patients expressed MAGE-C2. High-grade GIST are more likely to express MAGE-C2. MAGE-C2 also significantly correlates with mitotic rate and tumor size.

21876767 Expression of MAGE I proteins, MAGE-A3 or MAGE-C2, relieved repression of a reporter gene by ZNF382 and MAGE I expression relieved KAP1 mediated ID1 repression.
21780320 MAGEC2 is a sensitive and novel marker for seminoma.
21754986 MAGE-C2/CT10 expression in prostate cancer correlates with the degree of malignancy and indicates a higher risk for biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy.
21738656 Results suggest that the expression of MAGE-C1/CT7 and MAGE-C2/CT10 in primary melanoma is a potent predictor of sentinel lymph node metastasis.
21595801 p43-57 is the first HCA587-derived major histocompatibility complex class II-restricted epitope to fulfil all prerequisites for use as a peptide vaccine in patients with HCA587-expressing tumors
20862285 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20621094 a content of >/=50% MAGE-C1/CT7 expressing myeloma cells in a sample was associated with reduced overall survival (p=0.013).
18942708 MAGE-C2/CT-10 is expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma
17495964 the MAGE-A3 and MAGE-C2 gene promoter regions are de-methylated in the presence of activated KIT but become methylated on inhibition of KIT, consistent with the downregulation of mRNA and protein
17096150 because of the expression pattern of gene MAGE-C2, this new antigen is strictly tumor-specific
15061963 CT10 expression was more frequently found in squamous cell carcinoma than in adenocarcinoma.
14999777 identified 2 antigens encoded by gene MAGE-C2 which are recognized by several melanoma-specific cytolytic T lymphocyte clones isolated from a melanoma patient; both antigens are presented by HLA-A2
12920247 HCA 587 may be a valuable target antigen for diagnosis and vaccination of hepatocelular carcinoma patients.
