27012210 4-hydroxytamoxifen resistance in breast cancer cells is suppressed by curcumin, which targets the SLUG/Hexokinase 2 pathway
26992741 we demonstrated that rLZ-8 promoted the interaction between MDM2 and Slug, resulting in Slug degradation
26841870 Sox4 was also able to promote b-catenin-mediated transcription of the Slug gene through formation of transcriptional complexes with b-catenin and p300, independent of TCF4 status
26810856 As a consequence, Slug transcription is down-regulated relieving A549 cells from Slug-mediated repression of E-cadherin transcription, thereby diminishing the metastatic potential of these oncogenic Ras-expressing NSCLC cells
26571812 SNAI1 and SNAI2 - transcriptional master-regulators of epithelial-mesenchimal transition
26561320 Studied the role and putative interactors of SNAI2, a slug protein which is involved in the development of cancer progression. Based upon the computational analysis, we consider HNF4A could be a putative candidate to study zinc finger protein slug.
26561205 Data show that patients with high MDA-9/Syntenin and high Slug expressions were associated with poor overall survival compared to those with low expression in lung adenocarcinomas.
26467042 Our study shows an inversed preferential nuclear expression of SLUG, SOX10, and SOX9 in triple negative and non-triple negative cases.
26459371 highly expressed in stromal villi cells of molar disease
