Gene RIF (21)

26132438 EMX2 expression was down-regulated in lung SCC tissue compared to matched adjacent normal tissue. EMX2 expression was associated with improved overall survival. Knockdown promoted chemo-resistance and cell migration.
25577462 Although it is uncommon (0.19%), EMX2 is the first gene identified that if perturbed may cause isolated incomplete mullerian fusion.
25023662 EMX2 expression is downregulated in advanced cases of malignant pleural mesothelioma and may serve as an important prognostic and predictive molecular biomarker of progression-free survival.
24975717 Deletions of EMX2 have been associated with a wide range of DSD.
23370654 downregulation of empty spiracles homeobox 2 (EMX2) was associated with tumor progression and may be a critical factor in the carcinogenesis and progression of endometrial cancer
23029345 EMX2 expression led to inhibition of cell proliferation and Wnt signaling pathway both in vitro and in a gastric cancer xenograft model in vivo.
21917011 Study analyzed mutations of EMX2 gene in 45 prostate carcinomas, 51 non-small cell lung cancers, 43 gastric carcinomas, 44 colorectal carcinomas, and 43 breast carcinomas by polymerase chain reaction and single-strand conformation polymorphism assay.
21726823 Downregulation of EMX2 is associated with clinical outcomes in lung adenocarcinoma.
21651764 Data show that human teneurin-1 is directly regulated by EMX2 at a conserved promoter region upstream of the transcription start site, and identify and characterize the EMX2 dependent promoter element of human teneurin-1.
20697358 promoter. Restoration of EMX2 expression in lung cancer cells lacking endogenous EMX2 expression suppressed cell proliferation and invasive phenotypes
