26687066 Six1 regulates p53 via a dual mechanism involving upregulation of microRNA-27a and downregulation of RPL26.
26365380 SIX6 and/or intraocular pressure promotes primary open-angle glaucoma by directly increasing p16INK4a expression.
25798827 Single nucleotide polymorphism in SIX6 gene is associated with primary open angle glaucoma.
25537207 Nonglaucomatous individuals with the SIX6 missense variant have reduced RNFL thickness in regions known to be particularly affected in those with glaucoma.

24702266 we report a homozygous missense mutation of SIX6 associated with a unique eye phenotype characterized by optic disc anomalies, macular atrophy, and coloboma of the iris and chorioretina.
24150847 Our findings in humans and zebrafish suggest a functional involvement of six6b in early eye development, and open new insights into the genetic architecture of POAG.
