Gene RIF (36)

26471359 Results identify WDR5 as a key cofactor for N-Myc-regulated transcriptional activation and tumorigenesis and as a novel therapeutic target for MYCN-amplified neuroblastomas.
26383167 Target gene recognition by MYC depends on its interaction with WDR5. This interaction could create an avidity-based chromatin recognition mechanism allowing MYC to select its target genes in response to both genetic and epigenetic determinants. Review.
26355959 WDR5 over-expression is associated with poor breast cancer clinical outcome.
26324722 solution structures of the MLL3 core complex assembled with and without WDR5 by small angle x-ray scattering show similar overall topologies
26167872 Wdr5-MLL interaction in C/EBPA N-terminal leukemia is a promising pharmacological target.
26052702 BIG3 may block the KPNAs (KPNA1, KPNA5, and KPNA6) binding region(s) of PHB2.
25666610 findings prove that the TSP-1/CD47/SIRP-alpha signal axis is important to the evolution of tumor cells in the microenvironment of immunotherapy and identify thrombospondin-1 as a key signal
25656485 we have discovered that WDR5 plays an important role in bladder cancer suggesting that WDR5 is a potential biomarker and a promising target in the treatment of bladder cancer.
24793694 results identify WDR5 as a critical epigenomic integrator of histone phosphorylation and methylation and as a major driver of androgen-dependent prostate cancer cell proliferation
24235145 Data indicate that MLL1 methylates Ash2L in the absence of histone H3, but only when assembled within a complex with WDR5 and RbBP5.
