27027284 studies identify gain of MEKK3 signalling and KLF2/4 function as causal mechanisms for cerebral cavernous malformations pathogenesis that may be targeted to develop new CCM therapeutics
26853883 our data highlight an important role for KLF2/c-myc pathway in HCC development and progression.
26728187 These results indicate that the KDM3A-KLF2-IRF4 pathway plays an essential role in multiple myeloma cell survival and homing to the bone marrow, and therefore represents a therapeutic target.
26717516 These data provide support for a continuous role of KLF2 in stabilizing the vessel wall via co-temporal expression of eNOS and AQP1 both preceding and during the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
26456066 MicroRNA-30 mediates anti-inflammatory effects of shear stress and KLF2 via repression of Ang2.
26416422 Authors show that KLF2 induces the expression of CRABP2 and RARgamma and inhibits the expression FABP5 and PPARbeta/delta thereby shifting RA signaling from the pro-carcinogenic FABP5/PPARbeta/delta to the growth-suppressing CRABP2/RAR path.
26372274 Expression of KLF4 in mononuclear leukocytes positively correlates with cellular markers of immune activation, whereas KLF2 expression negatively correlates with markers of subclinical atherosclerosis in this HIV-infected population.
26336870 TUG1 overexpression was induced by nuclear transcription factor SP1 and TUG1 could epigeneticly repress Kruppel-like factor 2 (KLF2) transcription in HCC cells by binding with PRC2 and recruiting it to KLF2 promoter region.
26299712 In hyperuricemia, miR-92a downregulation increased KLF2 expression, subsequently inhibiting VEGFA, which resulted in decreased angiogenesis.
26212440 In conclusion, KLF2 suppressed the angiogenesis of LSECs through inhibition of cell proliferation, migration, and vessel tube formation.
