25738796 Downregulation of NIT2 inhibits colon cancer cell proliferation and induces cell cycle arrest through the caspase-3 and PARP pathways
25008847 Human NIT1/2 are not involved in the metabolism of vildagliptin.
22674578 The activity and substrate specificity of human Nit2 was determined with alpha-ketoglutaramate and succinamate as substrates.
17488281 Genotype analysis in 4 types of tumor tissue showed allelic imbalance surrounding NIT2 locus; results show that NIT2 plays an important role in cell growth inhibition & links to malignancies, suggesting Nit2 may be a potential tumor suppressor candidate
