26193637 KLF6 overexpression partially phenocopied chaetocin treatment in DDLPS cells and induced phenotypic changes that were consistent with adipocytic differentiation, suggesting that the effects of increased H3K9me3 may be mediated through KLF6
25686501 Palmitic acid increases Ppargamma and Klf6 & Klf9 gene expression and promotes triglyceride accumulation in HepG2 cells.
25652467 In this review, we focus on the functions, roles, and regulatory networks of these five KLFs in HCC, summarize key pathways, and propose areas for further investigation
25537765 KLF6 is a novel regulator of human villous trophoblast fusion.
25230316 Study revealed that overexpression of miR-101 inhibited the proliferation, cell migration, invasion, and promoted apoptosis of glioblastoma stem cells by directly targeting KLF6
25182666 the possibility that overexpression of miR-181a contributes to the increased permeability of BTB by targeting KLF6, thereby revealing potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of brain gliomas.
24921656 Data show that MiR-1301 and miR-210 specifically target the tumor suppressive KLF6-FL isoform but not the oncogenic KLF6-SV1 isoform in hepatocellular carcinoma.
24634218 Data indicate that upon IL-1beta stimulation, Kruppel-like factor 6 (KLF6) was recruited to promoters of a subset of NF-kappaB target genes in a p65-dependent manner, which was in turn required for the optimal binding of p65 to the target gene promoters.
24519062 Downregulation of KLF6 during the progression of breast cancer is independent of the mutations and occurs by a different mechanism.
24385430 KLF6 is required for optimal LPS-induced pro-inflammatory gene expression, acting cooperatively with NF-kappaB
