Gene RIF (89)

26976975 Study shows that NDRG2 was significantly down-regulated in glioblastomas (GBM) and seems to play a role in GBM prognosis. The low expression of NDRG2 at the mRNA level leads to a longer progression-free survival independent of methylation status.
26813459 miR-301a/b-NDRG2 might be an important axis modulating autophagy and viability of prostate cancer cells under hypoxia.
26802650 NDRG2 overexpression enhanced sodium/iodide symporter level in thyroid tumor cells and increased their iodine uptake in vitro.
26506239 Stuidies indicate the potential of N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (NDRG2) as a therapeutic target for cancer.
26341979 This review summarizes the distribution and subcellular localization of NDRG2 in brain tissues, highlights the physiological actions of NDRG2 in the nervous system, and discusses the roles of NDRG2 during the occurrence of nervous system disease. [review]
26317652 NDRG2 functions as an essential regulator in glycolysis and glutaminolysis via repression of c-Myc, and acts as a suppressor of carcinogenesis.
26292259 Loss of NDRG2 induced the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-19 (MMP-19), which regulated the expression of Slug at the transcriptional level in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition of gallbladder carcinoma cells.
26269411 The forced expression of NDRG2 in ATL cells down-regulates not only the canonical pathway by inhibiting AKT signaling but also the non-canonical pathway by inducing NF-kappaB-inducing kinase (NIK) dephosphorylation via the recruitment of PP2A
26250123 Epigenetic silencing of NDRG2 promotes colorectal cancer proliferation and invasion.
26239274 NDRG2 suppresses the proliferation of human bladder cancer cells via induction of oncosis.
