Gene RIF (9)

22843066 MT1E can enhance the migration and invasion of human glioma cells by inducing MMP-9 inactivation via the upregulation of NF-kappaB p50.
21358552 Our results reveal that menopause influences the adipose tissue expression of many genes, especially of neurexin 3, metallothionein 1E, and keratyn 7, which are associated with the alteration of several key biological processes.
20848733 MT1E is a potential tumour suppressor gene, whose loss may promote resistance to apoptosis-inducing therapies.
20551211 Increases in MT gene expression and intracellular zinc levels may contribute directly to maintenance of an immune-activated monocyte by mediating an increased resistance to apoptosis during active HIV-1 viremia.
19420986 High frequency of hypermethylation of MT-1E was found in endometrial carcinomas.
18724390 analysis identified genes known to be associated with cell invasion such as versican, and novel ones, including metallothionein 1E (MT1E) and nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT)
18349110 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
15747776 Eight MT genes were up-regulated after treatment of T-ALL cells with 0.15 and 1.5 microg/mL of metal ores. Heavy metal ion transporter activity.
12539042 Microarray analysis indicates HIV-1 Tat upregulates the interferon-responsive gene expression of many proteins, including Metallothionein, in immature dendritic cells, an effect that likely facilitates the expansion of HIV-1 infection
