26518708 NDN and CD1A are novel prognostic methylation markers in patients with head and neck squamous carcinomas
26384308 Germline single nucleotide polymorphism in necdin gene is associated with breast cancer.
23549060 Hypermethylation and mutation of necdin is associated with neoplasms.
22905258 necdin exerts its pro-survival activity by counteracting the action of the pro-apoptotic protein Cell Cycle Apoptosis Regulatory Protein (CCAR1/CARP1)
22691188 Necdin expression declined during replicative aging of IMR90 primary human fibroblasts or after induction of premature senescence.Showed that in normal human cells, Necdin expression mimicked the effect of p53 inactivation by increasing radioresistance.
22442722 necdin has multiple roles within protein complexes in different subcellular compartments, and indicate that it can utilize multiple karyopherin-dependent pathways to modulate its localization.
22305984 In pre-adipocytes, necdin over-expression inhibits adipogenesis, while reducing necdin levels enhances adipogenic differentiation in tissue culture cell
22046235 Necdin, a negative growth regulator,identified as a novel STAT3 target gene, whose expression is down-regulated at the mRNA and protein levels when STAT3 is constitutively active.
21912643 Necdin is implicated through the TNF-receptor 1 pathway in the developmental death of motoneuron
21543378 rare variant of necdin (p.V318A) was described in a family with Kallmann syndrome Familial segregation and in vitro analysis suggested that this non-synonymous variant did not have a direct causative role in hypogonadism phenotype.
