24982138 lentiviral overexpression of transcription factors ASCL1, SOX10, and NKX2.2 in NPCs was sufficient to induce Sox10 enhancer activity, OPC mRNA, and protein expression consistent with OPC fate
24821492 Our study suggests that CGT expression is controlled by balanced expression of the negative modulator OLIG2 and positive regulator Nkx2.2, providing new insights into how expression of GalCer is tightly regulated in cell-type- and stage-specific manners.
24411943 NKX2-2 and MNX1 are etiological genes for neonatal diabetes.
22446943 NKX2.2 is a valuable marker for Ewing sarcoma, with a sensitivity of 93% and a specificity of 89%, and aids in the differential diagnosis of small round cell tumors.
21624811 The NKX2-2 can induce desired neuronal lineages from most expressing neural progenitor cells by a mechanism resembling developmental binary cell-fate switching.
21481790 NKX2-1, NKX2-2, and MEF2C define oncogenic pathways in T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL).
20599218 expression may assist in the determination of the primary tumor site in patients with neuroendocrine tumor metastases of unknown origin: negative would suggest a bronchopulmonary primary, whereas positive would suggest a gastrointestinal primary
19011242 several genes that are known to be regulated by DNA methylation were up-regulated dramatically by integrin alpha6beta4 expression, including S100A4, FST, PDLIM4, CAPG, and Nkx2.2.
18987169 NKX2.2 functions in immature endocrine cells to control neuroendocrine differentiation in normal intestine and is expressed in most neuroendocrine tumors of the gut
18414662 EWS/FLI mediates transcriptional repression via NKX2.2 during oncogenic transformation in Ewing's sarcoma
