27048119 TWIST2 regulates epithelial-mesenchymal transition by depriving the epithelial cell phenotype of E-cadherin and endowing the mesenchymal cell phenotype with Vimentin, which may be involved in the progression and prognosis of ovarian cancer.
26842802 Findings indicated that HIF-2alpha promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition in pancreatic cancer by regulating Twist2 binding to the promoter of E-cadherin.
26119818 A substituted lysine at TWIST2 residue 75 results in Ablepharon Macrostomia Syndrome, whereas a glutamine or alanine yields Barber-Say Syndrome.
26019273 After chronic NOD2 stimulation, Twist1 and Twist2 coordinate the regulation of both transcriptional activators and repressors, thereby mediating optimal cytokine down-regulation.
25895023 MACC1 promotes vasculogenic mimicry in gastric cancer by regulating the HGF/c-Met-TWIST1/2 signaling pathway.
25728400 In patients with no duplication/triplication of the 1p36.22p36.21 region and no mutations in TWIST2, there are mutation(s) in one of the 30 genes in this region or mutations in other as yet unidentified genes at different locations
25663706 TWIST1 and TWIST2 are expressed in skeletal muscle and remained unaltered in metabolic diseases.
25608809 Twist2 plays roles in osteogenesis differentiation, tumor formation and epithelial-mesenchymal transition.[review]
25528769 Data suggest that TWIST1 and to a lesser degree TWIST2 expressed within the tumor stroma could contribute to the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT)-like tumor budding phenotype in colorectal cancers.
25420506 Results show that Twist2 expression was gradually increased during the progression from normal cervical squamous epithelium to cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and cervical squamous cell carcinoma.
