Gene RIF (8)

26337469 Data show a negative correlation between microRNA miR-212-3p and regulatory factor X-associated protein (RFXAP) in pancreatic cancer (PC) tissue.
20732328 RFXAP(C) consists of two alpha-helices that form a V-shaped structure that packs within the RFX5(N)(2) staple.
20024540 Study demonstrates that coordinate loss of MHCII expression in OCI-Ly2 DLBCL cells is associated with an 11-base deletion in the cDNA encoding RFX-AP, that is required for activating MHCII transcription.
19274739 the interaction between RFX5 and RFXAP promote folding of a poorly structured region ofRFXAP, which is required for high affinity binding of RFXB to the RFX5.RFXAP complex
18723135 RFXAP and RFXB have roles in relieving autoinhibition of RFX5
18336911 The transcriptional silent state of RFXAP correlated with reduced recruitment of RNA polymerase II to RFXAP chromatin in the MHC-II deficiency patient.
16337482 Only the C-terminal half of the protein is conserved among vertebrates. The C-terminal third of RFXAP, with an extensive glutamine-rich tract, could rescue HLA-DR, but not HLA-DQ or HLA-DP expression in a bare lymphocyte syndrome cell line.
15210800 The identification of nuclear import and export sites on RFX molecules provides potential targets to modulate MHC class II expression.
