26976975 Study shows that NDRG4 was significantly up-regulated in glioblastomas (GBM) and seems to play a role in GBM prognosis. These results indicate that NDRG4 gene in MGMT-methylated cells is a putative tumor-suppressor gene and an oncogene in cells with unmethylated MGMT.
26053091 These findings bring novel insight to the roles of NDRG4 in meningioma progression
25520251 Two downregulated genes, NDRG4 and GINS3, have been located in a genomic interval associated with cardiac repolarization in published GWASs and zebra fish knockout models
25241110 A homozygous variant in NDRG4 may be the causative variant of the autosomal recessive form of infantile myofibromatosis.
24993691 Methylation level in stool decreases dramatically following colorectal cancer resection
23725756 summarizes the current research on NDRG3 and NDRG4,including the molecular structure, cellular and tissue distribution, biological function, and function in cancer.
22869042 NDRG4 is involved in modulating cell proliferation, invasion, migration and angiogenesis in meningioma, and may play a valuable role as a molecular target in its treatment
22489821 Over expression of NDRG4 inhibited proliferation of GBM cells.
22399192 expression of NDRG4 is downregulated in human gliomas. The glioma patients with lower NDRG4 expression have a poor prognosis.
