25483960 These data suggest that acute PAX4 overexpression can reduce expression of aristaless related homeobox and glucagon during embryonic stem cell differentiation resulting in improved numbers of unihormonal insulin-positive cells.
25151965 PAX4-miR-144/451-ADAMs axis regulates human epithelial cancer metastasis
24752311 The PAX4 variant rs6467136 was associated with the therapeutic effect of rosiglitazone in Chinese T2DM patients.
24468700 Tph1 and increased EC cell number occurred before the onset of obesity and hyperleptinemi. In addition, leptin deficiency was associated with reduced Pax4 mRNA, oral leptin treatment enhanced both Tph1 and Pax4 mRNA.
24013263 MAFA nuclear expression in pancreatic alpha and beta cells, and the percentage of alpha cells expressing PAX4 are altered in patients with type 2 diabetes.
22521316 PAX4 R192H polymorphism generated a protein with defect in transcriptional repressor activities on its target genes, which may lead to beta-cell dysfunction associated with maturity onset diabetes of the young and early onset-age of type 2 diabetes.
21263211 A novel mutation of PAX4 is likely to be associated with diabetes in this Japanese family.
21059099 study did not detect causal mutations in the PAX4 gene in a large group of Czech MODYX probands, which may suggest-together with data from other European populations- MODY in Caucasians could only very rarely, if ever, be attributed to PAX4 mutations
20485196 PAX4 R192H mutation (rs2233580) was significantly associated with impaired glucose tolerance in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
20485196 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
