Gene RIF (12)

24440467 we found that metallothionein expression induced by Cd occurred much later, with the expression seen at least 12h or more after the Nrf2-dependent immediate responses were almost completed.
23536959 Aortic protection in diabetes by zinc supplementation is associated with upregulation of both metallothionein and Nrf2 expression.
23332881 Metallothionein may have a role in the control of apoptosis in pleomorphic adenoma.
23064051 findings show 5 MT isoforms were overexpressed in non-small cell lung cancer and overexpression of MT-1F and MT-2A predicted poor outcome; both isoforms may be involved in progression of this cancer type; upregulated MT-1F expression associated with larger primary tumor size and higher grade of malignanacy
22426038 MT1F is a putative tumor suppressor gene in colon carcinogenesis that is downregulated mainly by loss of heterozygosity in colon cancer tissue
21820154 This study identifies for the first time the relevant metallothionein isoforms for colorectal cancer progression.
21409206 Studies provide the mechanistic properties of metal binding for metallothionein metallation.
21128001 MT-1 rs8052394 A allele is associated with oral squamous cell carcinoma.
20812968 MT-1A, -1F, -1G, -1X and -2A isoforms are significantly down-regulated in proliferating keloid fibroblasts.
19251948 Knockdown of MT1F gene increased particular matter(2.5)-induced H2O2 release in alveolar macrophages.
15369632 In the liver cancer tissue, MT1F shows down-regulated expression that supports the inhibited function of MT1F in cancer growth
12539042 Microarray analysis indicates HIV-1 Tat upregulates the interferon-responsive gene expression of many proteins, including Metallothionein, in immature dendritic cells, an effect that likely facilitates the expansion of HIV-1 infection
