26166023 HOXA4 increases short-term repopulation to higher levels than HOXB4, which may involve Notch signaling to induce self-renewal of primitive hematopoietic cells
25585874 The NK AML patients with NPM1 mutations exhibited elevated HOXA4 methylation and expression levels of HOXA5 and MEIS1 compared with the NPM1 wildtype patients.
25472883 HIV-1 Tat specifically associates with HOXA4 promoter to upregulate HOXA4 expression in T cells
23484077 promoter hypermethylation of HOXA4 gene could be an epigenetic mechanism mediating IM resistance in CML patients.
21627813 HOXA4 showed nuclear & perinuclear staining in endothelial & smooth muscle cells in aorta. Spatial variation in expression in human aortas persisted into adulthood. Downregulation of HOXA4 expression was associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
21546695 Studies suggest that HOXA4, HOXA5 and HOXB4 provide the spatial information needed to restrict the response to signals from the notochord, and not up regulated in pancreatic cancer.
19723874 Results confirm that HOXA4 inhibits cell motility, show that it suppresses cell spreading and filopodia formation while enhancing cell-cell adhesion, and suggest a role for beta1 integrin in mediating these changes.
19563517 combination of low HOXA4 and low MEIS1 gene expression is a favourable predictor for outcome in all AML patients and that the expression levels are governed by the methylation state of these genes.

18410541 analysis of the role of deregulated PcG genes in acute myeloid leukemia, and the downstream PcG targets HOXA4, HOXA9 and MEIS1
