Gene RIF (5)

24662736 MT1H was down-regulated in renal cell carcinogenesis.
20551211 Increases in MT gene expression and intracellular zinc levels may contribute directly to maintenance of an immune-activated monocyte by mediating an increased resistance to apoptosis during active HIV-1 viremia.
15747776 Eight MT genes were up-regulated after treatment of T-ALL cells with 0.15 and 1.5 microg/mL of metal ores. Heavy metal binding activity.
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
12081484 S-nitrosothiols react preferentially with zinc thiolate clusters through transnitrosation.
