26940738 expression of ZEB1 and TWIST1, which are master regulators of tumor metastasis. Our study first indicates that miR-1271 functions as a suppressor in regulating of pancreatic cancer EMT by targeting ZEB1 and TWIST1.
26910679 TWIST1 gene mutation maybe an underlying factor in the development of craniosynostosis.
26905590 findings not only pinpoint that Twist1 mediates the modulatory function of PAQR3 on EMT and metastasis but also suggest that targeting Twist1 is a promising strategy to control metastasis of tumors with downregulation of PAQR3
26832848 Study found that upregulated Twist1 increased Bmi1 expression in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and endued leukemic cells a higher proliferative potential and increased resistance to apoptosis. In primary AML samples, there was strong positive correlation between the expression levels of Twist1 and Bmi1.
26782761 Twist and P-gp are expressed correlatively in human colorectal cancer specimens
26762267 Findings suggest that miR-548c directly downregulates Twist, and provide a novel mechanism for Twist upregulation in both endometrial and ovarian cancers.
26718342 Our results identified TWIST1 as a transcription factor that regulates C3 expression during pathologic and physiologic epithelial-mesenchymal transition
26718114 findings demonstrate that Twist-1, which maintains BMSC at an immature state, endows them with an increased capacity for supporting hematopoiesis via direct activation of CXCL12 gene expression.
26693891 Twist-ITGB1-FAK/ILK pathway and their downstream signaling network dictate the Twist-induced EMT process in human mammary epithelial cells and breast cancer cells
26656856 Data suggest that basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor TWIST might play critical roles in cancer progression and act as a prognostic factor for head and neck carcinoma (HNC) patients.
