25871618 study evaluated the potential use of NKX6-1 as a diagnostic marker for well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors
25596704 a significant relationship was observed between NKX6.1 and EMT marker expression levels, and NKX6.1 knockdown inhibited cell invasion, and overexpression of NKX6.1 promotes cell proliferation in vitro.
24407576 NKX6-1 reveals wide variations in methylation levels in normal control samples of cervical adenocarcinomas.
23897760 Mice transplanted with NKX6.1-low cells remained hyperglycemic throughout the 5-month post-transplant period whereas diabetes was reversed in NKX6.1-high recipients within 3 months.
23863625 MAFA, MAFB, NKX6.1, and PDX1 activity provides a gauge of islet beta cell function, with loss of MAFA (and/or MAFB) representing an early indicator of beta cell inactivity
21985235 Smooth muscle cells expressing nestin and Nkx6.1 are the main cell population derived from culturing human spinal cord cells in adherent conditions with serum.
21108535 Data suggest that NKX6.1 activates immature pancreatic markers but not pancreatic hormone gene expression in human liver cells, and suggest a potential role for NKX6.1 in promoting PDX-1 reprogrammed maturation along a beta-cell-like lineage.
20106981 identified an NKX6.1 recognition sequence in the distal region of the HNF1alpha promoter and demonstrated specific binding of NKX6.1 in beta cells
18754095 Alterations of gastric NKX6.1 expression in Helicobacter pylori infection, incisural antralisation, and intestinal metaplasia.
18347054 overexpression of Nkx6.1 in islets caused an increase in the level of [(3)H]thymidine incorporation that was twice the control level, along with complete retention of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion
16873704 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
15056733 Nkx6.1 is a bifunctional transcription factor that serves to maintain the specific expression of its own gene during beta-cell differentiation while simultaneously effecting broader gene repression events
