26833329 We show that POU3F2 lies downstreamof SIM1 and controls oxytocin expression in the hypothalamic neuroendocrine preoptic area. We show that this finding is consistent with the expression patterns of POU3F2 and related genes in the human brain.
23530560 BRN2 is a higher level regulator than ASCL1 and ND1 and BRN2 might be involved in aggressiveness of small cell lung cancer.
23358112 TTF1 expression in small-cell lung cancer is a cell lineage-specific phenomenon that involves the developing neural cell-specific homeoprotein BRN2.
23069940 The present study investigated transcriptional regulation of CDH13 in melanoma. Found an inverse correlation between BRN2 and T-cadherin protein and transcript expression in melanoma.
22988297 PI3K has a crucial role in regulating Brn-2 and Pax3 expression and neoplasm invasiveness, and it is a key determinant of melanoma subpopulation diversity.
21435193 a model for the apparent non-overlapping expression levels of BRN2 and MITF in melanoma, mediated by miR-211 expression.
21358674 links BRN2 as an activator and MITF as a repressor of the NOTCH pathway in melanoma cells. Loss of the BRN2-MITF axis in antisense-ablated cell lines decreased the melanoma sphere-forming capability and cell adhesion
20337985 POU3F2 may regulate the properties of melanoma cells via autocrine KIT ligand signalling.
19023125 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18996486 Expression and purification of full-length BRN2, a transcription factor involved in melanoma growth, are reported.
18923447 SOX9 and SOX10 but not BRN2 seem to be required for nestin expression in human melanoma.
18829533 Brn-2 regulates invasiveness and directly represses Mitf expression.
17163992 Rb induces a proliferative arrest and regulates Brn-2 expression in retinoblastoma cells
16858508 Observational study of genotype prevalence. (HuGE Navigator)
15024080 The results suggest that the high levels of Brn-2 expression observed in melanomas link BRAF signaling to increased proliferation.
