24316376 The nuclear and non-nuclear NELF variant transcripts and proteins were identified, explaining variable NELF cellular localization.
23884411 a model in which NELF recruits Pcf11 and NCoR1-GPS2-HDAC3 to paused RNAP II, reinforcing repression of HIV transcription and establishing a critical checkpoint for HIV transcription and latency.
21300340 NELF is associated with normosmic idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and Kallmann syndrome, either singly or in combination with a mutation in another gene.
20025934 our findings implicate NELF as a nuclear protein involved in the developmental function of the reproductive axis.
19489874 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18463157 12% of Kallman syndrome males have KAL1 deletions, but intragenic deletions of the FGFR1, GNRH1, GNRHR, GPR54 and NELF genes are uncommon in Idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism/Kallman syndrome.
