25312721 Data indicate that inhibiting dickkopf-related protein 2 (DKK2)with siDKK2 reduced the expression of DKK2, but had no effect on leptin expression.
24117450 We found 1 DKK2 SNP to be significantly associated with alcohol-related harm in alcoholic subjects
23999978 MiR-21 overexpression was significantly correlated with the DKK2-/beta-catenin- immunohistochemical phenotype.
23587485 a new regulatory mechanism of miR-222
23204234 Our results provide strong evidence that DKK2 is a key player in Ewing sarcoma invasion and osteolysis and also in the differential phenotype of Ewing sarcoma cells.
