26554594 MAFB represents a unique signature and likely important regulator of the primate islet beta-cell.
26204962 The rs2902940A allele carriers in the MAFB conferred a decreased serum ApoAI level in controls and an increased risk of coronary artery disease and ischemic stroke.
26115698 MAFB is a regulator and a marker of adipose tissue inflammation, a process that subsequently causes insulin resistance
26055874 MiR-223 negatively regulates the growth and migration of NPC cells via reducing MAFB expression, and this finding provides a novel insight into understanding miR-223 regulation mechanism in nasopharyngeal carcinoma tumorigenesis.
25917456 Gata3 interacted with Gcm2 and MafB, two known transcriptional regulators of parathyroid development, and synergistically stimulated the PTH promoter.
25721756 DNMT3A R882 mutation is associated with elevated expression of MAFB and M4/M5 immunophenotype of acute myeloid leukemia blasts.
24989131 These findings indicate that only a few transactivation domain-specific mutations within MAFB cause multicentric carpotarsal osteolysis.
24972815 rs6065259 was the most important single nucleotide polymorphism in MAFB (OR6065259-AA=0.45; 95% CI: 0.28 to 0.71; p=0.0027), followed by rs13041247; no association was found between rs11696257 and NSCLP.
24472656 data support the existence of a signaling cascade by which stimulation of macrophages with the IL-10 cytokine determines a sequential activation of STAT3 and MafB transcription factors
24327562 Mafb is responsible for executing one branch of the SGN differentiation program orchestrated by the Gata3 transcriptional network
