26769970 the genes, and up-regulated 64% in undifferentiated hES cells. In addition, GCNF also showed a regulatory gene pattern that is different from RA treatment during hES cell differentiation
23532770 Our results show that cellular levels of NR6A1 are correlated with disease progression in prostate cancer.
23495137 Findings show a role for Gcnf as a regulator of iPS cell pluripotency gene expression. It also demonstrates that reactivation of the Gcnf gene may serve as a marker to distinguish completely reprogrammed iPS cells from incompletely pluripotent cells.
21056546 These experiments confirmed that NR6A1 works as a regulator for hypocretin transcription.
