26428460 Genetic variation in MEOX2, but not TCF15, is a strong predictor of CHD. Further experimental studies should elucidate the underlying molecular mechanisms.
26041434 3D topography transiently induces concomitant upregulation of IL-1beta and MAPK ERK1/2 through nuclear factor-kappaB-dependent signaling pathway.
25561514 Microarray profiling on freshly isolated ECs had a genetic signature for microvascular heart ECs and identified Meox2/Tcf15 heterodimers as novel transcriptional determinants. This signature was similar in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue endothelium.
25460568 MEOX2 participates in chemoresistance irrespective of high CNV, but it is significantly dependent upon H3K27me3 enrichment probably associated with aggressiveness and chemotherapy failure in NSCLC patients
22644917 downregulated expression of GAX is an independent prognostic factor and is correlated with poor survival in hepatocellular carcinoma patients
22206000 MEOX1 and MEOX2 activate p16(INK4a) in a DNA binding dependent manner, whereas they induce p21(CIP1/WAF1) in a DNA binding independent manner.
20421348 Report of an interaction between a homeobox protein and IkappaBbeta in endothelial cells and suggest that MEOX2 modulates the activity of the RelA complex through direct interaction with its components.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19760604 Loss of MEOX2 gene is associated with Wilms tumor.
19383287 ectopic Meox2 suppressed epithelial cell proliferation in cooperation with TGF-beta1, and mediated induction of the cell cycle inhibitor gene p21.
