23604637 Results show that Nkx2-8 functions as a tumor suppressor in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), the downregulation of which contributes to NF-kappaB P65 activation and ESCC angiogenesis.
22223847 overexpression of Nkx2.8 resulted in downregulation of p-FOXO3a and inhibition of MEK/ERK pathway activity. silencing Nkx2.8 led to upregulation of p-FOXO3a and increase of MEK/ERK pathway activity.
21148747 Most tumors have low expression of Nkx2-8, and its expression can inhibit growth of some lung cancer cells.
19279207 Coactivation of the TTF-1 and NKX2-8 pathways identified a cluster of lung cancer patients with poor survival and were shown to exhibit resistance to cisplatin
12167706 A murine Nkx2.8 was isolated from the Hepal-6 cell line and showed oligonucleotide binding competitive with fetoprotein transcription factor.
