26467157 HOXB5 may be an important regulator of the Wnt/beta-catenin signalling pathway, thereby contributing to gastric cancer progression and metastasis.
25999793 HOXB5 acts as a positive modulator by promoting cell proliferative response and invasiveness in ER-positive breast cancer.
25703667 Roles of Hoxb5 in the development of vagal and trunk neural crest cells.
24189625 Overexpression of HoxB5 enhances blood vessel perfusion in vivo by up-regulation of MCP-1 and IL-6 as well as in enhanced leucocyte infiltration and blood vessel remodelling.
23438671 HOXB5 and HOXB8 are frequently expressed in ovarian serous carcinoma, with anatomic site-related differences for cytoplasmic staining. HOXB5 may be affected by chemotherapy in effusions.
22768238 A miRNA 7-binding single nucleotide polymorphism (1010A/G) located within 3'-UTR of HOXB5 is associated with gene expression and may be a promising prognostic factor for bladder cancer.
22648184 The findings for HOXB5 and PHOX2B provide supportive evidence that genes regulating ENCC proliferation, migration and differentiation could be risk factors for Hirschsprung's disease
22603795 HOXB5, HOXB6, and HOXB7 are activated in Barrett esophagus, and the midcluster HOXB gene signature in BE most resembled the colon rather than other GI epithelia.
22484627 Single nucleotide polymorphism in HOXB5 gene is associated with childhood obesity.
21677782 Data show that human HOXB5 binds to the promoter region 5' upstream of the binding site of NKX2-1 and regulates RET expression.
